    Now that is a Truck no doubt. What a fine truck at that!

    Until you have torn apart a vehicle to make it modern its hard to imagine. I have and that is some work there gents!.

    COE were and are a thing to do, This though IMO is more useful if need be amf better looking than the COE.

    Love them cement truck tires JR.

    One of the best trucks I ever drove was a 71 Autocar with the Detroit 6-71 and Eaton 10-wheeler. It was a true beast.

    He put a 8.3 turbo Cummins/ Allison in it. It does not know what a hill is!
    The tiers are super singles. See them a lot on cement trucks for some reason.

    Saw a similar one, different color, at the Milan OH Tuesday night car show a few years ago. The one you posted is better.

    Ohhh now you've done it. I got a soft spot for the Suzuki Carry. Almost got one instead of my ranger, but here in the state of Washington it has to be 25 years old or more to import. So now you are dealing with a 660cc carbed engine that is 25 years old, so I had to pass.

    I regularly haul a load that is about 2500# in my F250 work truck, and sometimes pull a trailer in addition to that so I need a full size truck for work.

    ps. glad to hear the dog is ok.
    I have a 34 year old fun version of that machine with 980cc carbed engine that runs like a charm. They are basically the same chassis with a different body only with the engine tilted sideways to fit the truck cabin. It will go places bigger ones struggle
    You may only view thumbnails in this gallery. This gallery has 3 photos.

    Well, at a recent tractor pull event, they talked him into hooking up. In the 8500 lb class, he did a 250’ pull.
    Not bad.

    Your work, I assume? Very nice indeed.
