Hendricksons

Recommended Posts

Those models with the comfo-vision cab and set back axles are so damn cool looking.Only one I've seen was owned by Suzio and is unrestored.I'd love to find one,if not i'd like to get another truck with that cab!

Nice trucks that you almost never see on the east coast.

Someone posted earlier that Hendrickson was building fire apparatus. That is partially correct; they were a big player in the fire apparatus chassis business, but as far as I know they never built the entire truck.


Money, sex, and fire; everybody thinks everyone else is getting more than they are!

The John Deere Hendrickson pictured above is not a ComfoVision cab.. It looks more like the A model cab which followed.

I was confused by that also. I think he's referring to post #41 at the top of page 3.

naw that's not a Volvo seat that's a 64 ford superduty bucket seat or at least it was the rule on my first job off the ranch, every mixer truck at Tonasket ready mix had that passenger seat also doubled as a tool box and a trash can. Great pics of the trucks never seen one out west here but can defnently see the ih influence also some reo. and diamond t. ih musta traded cabs for drive train parts lol

From what I've been told Diamond T designed the Comfo-Vison cab.They sold the rights to IH to produce it,and made a deal for DT to get cabs.
