I am new to posting pics....but soon will post my big 57.
I had a 53 and a 56 firetruck...both were very low miles and clean. Shame I cannot locate another to buy. I also had a 56 fseries big job with water derrick.....they were all sold.
Here's a couple pic's of a truck in the area. There's also a 48 COE with pick up bed that hits the shows around here, unfortunately I haven't snapped a good pic of yet. Can't wait for show / cruise weather to return.
Haven't run across you here in awhile, hope things are going okay.
Yep, something along those lines, maybe a bit more old style truck, less rod. I've been building one in my head for a few years, then I ran across this at a show. It's about 5 miles from here. I believe he's running a 400 O'mobile and a/t. If you want better quality pics to download to your personal collection let me know. I try to downsize a bit before posting here.
You know guys, I have to say the you have really inspired me! Truly. I am self employed. I cannot think of a cooler way to brand my biz than with a cool azz old school heavy cruiser. I have a small excavation company, skid steer, track hoe. I currently use a dually and a dump trailer. I have been shopping for a dump truck the last few months. I already have the best doner truck for a project, 94 F350, 7.3 IDI Turbo. I need to find an old school hauler and do some retro and an awesome old school paint job. What do you think. I mean it will have to be practical for me to use. But can you imagine a shiny beautiful vintage billboard???? Talk about eye catching. MAN! Thanks so much for the ideas and inspiration fellas. You will be hearing from me again once I get a hold of some old iron somewhere. Any one know where some cool old iron might be located???
They just don't produce any trucks quite like these anymore, some of them are just so elegant. My favorite was the Labatt, even though I consider myself an ultra modern person I was impressed by the lovely styling and design.
