Beautiful working R Model


Recommended Posts

By the looks of the air cleaner it looks like a 285 and the transmission has been swapped or a 315 if the 9 speed is stock but it also looks like it has a charge air cooler too. anyway that is one nice looking R model, ,it looks like he takes pride in it.

yup agree, gotta admit I hated the tan interior when its dirty but when its clean and tidy it looks pretty sharp. never really cared for the gray interior or the two spoke rubber steering wheel.

had it in a U model...really liked it,,,didnt like that first shade at all,,,they had in 73,,,had an R model with it....terrible ...bob

yup, with that air cleaner with a roadranger trans im thinkin it might be an R612 with a 300+ or someone put a roadranger in it behind a 285. either way it has an air cooler and looks like he grille is bolted to it?

He told me the tranny was a Mack 9 speed...

What a sweet ride. That guy deserves so much credit for keeping a working truck like that in such beautiful condition. And, the steering wheel isn't even cracked! I too like that wheel much better than the later two spoke black wheel.

Beautiful truck. Thanks for tracking it down.
