Hi Michelle.

Thanks for having such a great site with all the related information about FORD N-SERIES and H-SERIES TRUCKS. Thanks for all your dedication. I am on the side of those who did not know what an N-SERIES FORD is. Now my interest is drawn into this classic and rare FORD TRUCKS.

Is it right to categorize the FORD N-SERIES as a CABOVER TRUCK????

I took the time to create a PICTURE GALLERY or ALBUM about CLASSIC FORD CABOVER TRUCKS on my FACEBOOK, among other CLASSIC FORD TRUCKS ALBUMS.

I am from PUERTO RICO and here there is no interest to preserve CLASSIC TRUCKS. On my way in a few days to a place were there is to say I will find 3 FORD N-SERIES TRUCKS, one of them a TANDEM AXLE one with a DIESEL ENGINE. Hope to get that one for free if OWNER wants to SCRAP it.

Got a lot to learn about CLASSIC TRUCKS , but I think I am passionate about it and I want others (specially my peers) to learn about the history of these forgotten trucks.

THANKS.

Some people call them cab overs, but technically they are considered a cab forward. Ford trucks prior to 1956 with the short hoods like the N series were called cabovers and had the C disignation. In 1957 Ford redesigned the C cab and make it a true cabover. When Ford started building the N series in 1963 they called them a cab forward. In 1961 the H model arrived on the scene and was a C cab that was raised high enough to allow a Cummins diesel to be set under it. The H model was replaced in 1966 with the W series cab over.

What can I say, I miss you guys too. I still have my Sprint but I have got very involved in my big trucks in the last several years and they seem to be the focus of my attention now days. I still have the 67 N 950 and now have a 86 LTL 9000 too. I have also a quired another pick up, a 65 F100 Ranger. I stumbled up on the Ranger in the same Colorado town that my Falcon came from. Tell everyone that I am still alive and kicking.

PS. I post over here on FTE fairly regular, I am usually on the large trucks board. Large Truck - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

Just to keep the "N" Fords alive, here's a thank you to Michelle for her N truck site with helpful info and pictures.
She knows her stuff and the N series is worth owning.

Another thank you Michelle, for the great info on your site and for directing us here.
I may be very well owning a 66 N soon, if the owner can find the paperwork.

391 gas engine.

I'll know a little bit more in the morning. Not sure exactly what trans he originally ID'ed, but he said that it was pretty rare to have it mated to a gas engine.
The truck has a decent body, no bed, no fifth wheel, and there is an axle (disc brakes) sitting on the frame rails. Not sure if it goes with this truck or an old Diamond Rio sitting out in the field.
While the owner tracks down his paperwork, I'm going to attempt to get it running.
Should be interesting.

If I am not mistaken, the transmission is an Eaton 10 speed. The truck ran when parked (they always do) but needed a water pump.

Not sure of your engine but I found my water pump and brake parts on Amazon. If you get the truck, try there first.

Go to ebay and type in N Series, and more sales brochures may be up for bid. This will show you what they look like. My answer is, they were a cross between a short convential nose and a cabover. Ford's cabover was the C Series and their Over the road truck was the H Series, somewhat similar to the C series.

Growing up in Ft. Wayne, Indiana a local dump trucking outfit had one and they nicknamed it "Old Smokey".

I grew up in Fort Wayne too. We lived three blocks from the GE plant, and I saw on a daily basis those N series, H Series and the Larger F Series Ford Trucks all over the place. We lived there from 1965 to 1975.

I believe the C was produced almost 40 years 57 -97 any one else to verify or dispute this?
Currently I drive a 1993 Aeromax LTLA9000 with Cummins N14 (Currently showing 177900 on the second time around) but I got started in trucking with a 1977 C originally 534 Gas but converted to 3208 Cat.
Does anyone know of a site featuring either of these?
The C Series was produced from 1957 to 1990. In 1986 the Cargo came along and was supposed to replace the C Series but didn't until 1990. The entire C Series run had single head lights. Except for the model years 1958-1960 when they had the dual or quad headlights. There is little difference between a 1957, and a 1990.

My source for verification is The Ford Truck Chronicle. c.2006 Publications International Ltd. Pg. 246.
