Ford LTL9000 hauling some weight

Recommended Posts

Back in the 80's and 90's, those Louisville Fords were everywhere!

 Twenty years ago there were  a lot of them running around Fairfax ,now you only see barrier trucks made from a rental fleet or rag bags hauling dirt but they are being pushed out by freighltiner rag bags

I never knew Ford made a narrow cab steel hauler.. Must have a roof top escape hatch with the crane unit behind the cab???

if you look closely you can see the "short door" on the driver side that opens above the fender platform.

the door ends at the lower hinge.

I would love to know the year and specs on the FT 800/900 roll off.

I have never seen those badges on the cowl sides.

The steel hood makes it a pain in the ass to work on the engine

Whoever parallel parked that steel hauler is a top-notch driver!

 A rooftop hatch is used when the cargo is higher than the bottom of the door.

I would guess the cab was narrowed by a coachbuilder, a company that would do it to any make of truck that was supplied to them.

Nice LTL's but is it my imagination or are those cabs wider than the versions we had in US?  And are those real two piece windshields?
