For now get it mechanical sound , put on a flat bed and enjoy it. The cab is rusted through above the drivers side drip rail , Hood hinge mounts are ripped out . the body is rough .
It was used by Conoco to carry seismic cables . It still has a Conoco sticker on the glove box door with the maintenance instructions . Then a Farmer bought it and made a spray rig out of it.

Probably a Marmmon Herrington or a Napco built. If it was built by either of these 2 there should be a tag afixed someplace stating such. Now thats a beast of a truck looks like it could drag cables to where ever they were needed.

Great Monster potential.

If that is a sprayer rig on the back, better flush it with a few thousand gallons of water before letting the kids climb on her.

Cummings? No such thing. They are a Cummins, no g. I would bet an Allis Chalmers would be a sick dog.

Thank you for pointing that out 72 redneck . I'll try to do better with my spelling. I should know how to spell Cummins . I have followed one for the last 33 years preparing fields for planting.
It will stay Ford powered , well for now .
The Allis is a turbo 4 same as a BT4. It used in Gleaner combines.
It is a Coleman 4x4. In 61 to meet Cali wheelbase regulations on 4x4. Ford widened their large truck wheelbase . Maybe that is why the wheel studs are on the outer face of the hub . Instead of on the outer part of the hub. In earlier pictures I have found the domed hub is always seen.

That looks like it takes up a lot of space!
You can park it behind my shop for free.
Fill up the tank and leave the key on top of the left front tire.
