Popular Post 67RModel Posted November 22, 2021 Popular Post Share Posted November 22, 2021 I'm tossing around the idea of selling my B81. It is a 1960 B81SX that is sort of a Frankenstein truck. It is repowered by ENDT675 237hp Maxidyne that is suuuuper healthy and probably closer to 250 or 275hp. I just had the injection pump overhauled and the injection shop juiced it up a little bit. It has an air starter. It still retains the original quad box transmission and 58K rears on camelback suspension with 9.10 gears and rides on matching 12.00-24 rubber that are in good shape for an antique class vehicle. This combination of powertrain is good for about 45 mph. It has triple frame rails with no rust jacking or corrosion anywhere. It is currently set up with a Holland 5th Wheel. It also has "shop built" power steering out of a much later model truck...probably a 1980s R model. Because of this, the steering column / steering wheel do not match the cab interior but greatly improves the drivability of the truck. It really works great at slow speed maneuvering and is not overly conspicuous as to not being original. If you were able to get a period correct steering wheel on this column most people would never know. The truck is overall 95% completed and just needs the front bumper painted and installed which I have. As well as some wiring, detail items, and cleaning / polishing. I hate to sell it but I don't have a tremendous amount of interest in B models and its a nice enough example that the right person could make it super nice. It just takes up space in my garage that could be used for my working truck to be stored inside. I have a clear title in hand for the truck and I'm just wondering given that its not a 100% original truck but in excellent restored shape what it would realistically be worth in its present 95% completed state. Sorry I only have 1 picture of it. Its the only picture I have on my phone of it and its buried in my garage. I will try and take some more pictures of it tonight and upload them. Let me know what you think. Thanks. 4 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
