Couple more F models pics scanned from John Hoppes' collection

You're half right Dave!

#199 was a '68 400 series Brockway originally built with a 318 Detroit and a five speed Fuller.

By the time this picture was taken it had been changed over to a 237 Maxidyne with a five speed Maxitorque.

Was a better truck than when it was new!

yep,out back waiting on a facelift.Hated to quit driving it,but that's when I bought my Freedom Superliner,it had heat in the winter and air in the summer,instead of the other way around in the blue F.It was was a little easier on my back,too.

I see you got a load of mashed 4 wheelers there, I hauled plenty of them some years ago!

Or 141 Huyndais ?

no,seriously there are 21 smashed Ford Escorts on that load.Usually I'd smash about 3 loads before I'd start hauling them off,so I could kinda "fit" the loads together for maxium payload,cause I just had a 40 footer.One week there were several Escorts so I saved a bunch back and made a full load of them.
