Yeah, I really don't need it, but I really like the big trucks, and this one is right in the neighborhood. I still haven't tracked down the owner, but I'm
watching for him. The plates are long expired, so I don't think it's going too far. If I can come to a suitable price, I'll grab it.

Sweet trucks. Love those old pictures.


Real550A

So you found a truck that really needs to be adopted (by you) here is what id do to start tracking down the owner.
First. If you can identify which property/parcel its on. Look at google earth images etc, look at adjacent parcels to get its relative position

Then check your local county recorders office. (Lots of county recorders offices have online maps and. )Basic ownership maps that hopefully you could access from the internet, if not make a trip to their office and get the owners name and mailing addresse on the parcel from them.

Look them up in phone book, or if not listed you at least have an addresse thet they send tax notices to.

Good luck, let us know how that turns out too.

Btw. Ive never done any of the above for a truck...
Ok ok so your onto me. Just remember I can stop anytime I want to.

Yeah, I'm going to try a little harder to talk to the owner in the next couple weeks.
I actually could use a single axle tractor around here, once in a while, and this one
would fit right in with the matching grille and all. Ha!

You should post a pic of it when you see it next. Also find a hot blonde to pose next to it if you can please.

The 401 477 534 indentification was on the side hood emblem.
Tripleframe- I think that's what I'm looking at. If I remember correctly, it has "401" on the side hood emblem flags.
Here's a shot of the "business end" of the truck:

Wow, that looks like a time capsule there. Yes, you have a "Super Duty" tractor with the necessary air brake option. By the looks of the front and rear axle, you should have an F 850. This was the lightest of the single axle tractors available with the super duty engine, F 1100 was the heaviest single axle tractor.

F 1100's are very hard to find. The (5) says formerly optional, now standard.The F1100's came with a Timken U-200 or Timken U-300 29,000 lb double reduction rear axle. To put in perspective, 23,000 lb is the industry standard today.

Went by the "time warp" today. No one around anywhere. If you look closely, you can read the "401" on the tail of the emblem.

It would be easier to read the 401 if the trim paint wasn't faded out.

Boy did I log some miles in those, 5X4 534 ten wheel dump trucks and
we had two with V6 bone shaker Cummins (gutless) these were the
king of the highway, 534 blow the doors off any other truck who cared
at $0.30 a gal and it could do a saddle tank a day maybe 100 gal.
