This Custom Cab S.D. has the 15,000 lb front axle and the 38,000 lb rears, which brings the GVWR to 51,000 lbs

One earning money back in the day. Has lighter 5 spoke front axle and may or may not be a dual drive tandem, many were tag axles.

Bet that tandem tractor from the 6/29 post is a diesel conversion. Note the air cleaner pre-cleaner sticking through the hood, exhaust stack, and oil stain on the fuel tank. Detroit 6V-53's fit nicely in those Fords.

Awesome thread. I had a 57. Don't remember a lot about it. Had juice brakes and single rear axle. Gas V8 and a long flat deck that I hauled a Jap Cat about the size of a D4 on over a mountain. Was all she could do but did it well till I ran out off gas and went backwards till she found a flat spot the brakes would hold her on. And this at night on a secondary old logging road. Some of the dumb stuff we did in our younger days. I wonder how I made it to 60.

These trucks are epic warriors of the past. Save them and carve our fathers' names in stone.

Wow, big back window, Custom Cab. I wonder what other little options it
has? I'm in total lust, but that doesn't take much at my age!

Any updates? I just got an original radiator for mine.

I'm still looking for other parts and pieces.

Here's the 1959 I got the radiator from:



Note how big the top tank is:



Is that the standard for these trucks? My images are the only pictures of a super duty radiator on the internet.

Here it is next to a 1970's f600 radiator:



They are both awaiting a re-core/restoration.

Anyone want to decode this? Haha.
