EJ- correct on the juice brakes.      To get a real appreciation for this truck you should get a look when its on the lowboy and you see the detail underneath.  A typical Dave Mauro restoration.

I didn't know they offered a heavy automatic in 1965.

That truck was converted to manual transmission during it's working life. Dave Mauro somehow knew where the allison was stored and when he bought and restored the truck reunited them. Not only is the underside as nice as the top side the brake shoes are even painted to match the frame and they were just as shiny.
