Before spending a penny, see if this puppy will start and drive. From the looks of the engine, the last time it ran...Clinton was prez.

But before doing anything...better make sure there's nothing inside the carb besides what belongs there. Without an aircleaner, who knows what mighta fallen in.

The front end looks like a pickup, but this ain't a pickup. I was amused when someone said remove some spring leafs.

Take a gander at them, they're five times the size of the ones on your High Boy....and weigh considerably more.

it drove to where it is at now, he put it there last summer. now i dont know how far it drove im guessing only a mile or two as it was from the same town. yeah he is bad for pulling air filters off, dont know why. i've had to check the carb many times on the old plow truck this last winter. i looked at the spings yeah i know they are huge. granted they are smaller than on our kw w900a...lol but they are still huge. i mentioned ditching some springs to reduce the ride hight, when you lower most semi fronts you just take out the blocks but not all have blocks. they make kits to put air bags on solid i beam axles so you can ride low but still handle massive weight. i've done a ton of work on the big KW so i was thinking that it wouldnt be too hard to rat rod the f600. the old 330 doesnt really impress me all that much. i've got a 391 laying in the back of one of the shops or i have access to a 390. i just love that fat fender look with the huge wheels under it.

A friend of mine just rat rodded a 37 Chev dually (hope I'm aloud to say that in here haha) He put and old towing rig on the back, a ridiculous 454 he built, and big stacks coming up the back of the cab... probably the sickest truck I've seen in a while. Do it!

well im sad to say i was under the old girl today and the mounts are pretty shot. i found a lot more rust than im willing to deal with. its not the worst ive seen but im too deep in my currant project to want to mess with it. so if anyone is interested in her, let me know, might be able to make a deal...i really dont want to see her go to the scrapper...just know that the wrecker part is headed to a differant truck.

Is that second pick a F600? and is it a dually?

I have a 1956 F600 that I am hoping to make a crewcab or a truck with a 56 F100 with a long bed.

you should drop the body onto a semi frame with the big diesel motor... with some big old stacks... with dual drive axles and a tag axle.. thats what id do...

I have a 1964 or 1966 F600 with split rims, and one of them got stolen. I was thinking that I would like to replace all the rims on this truck as there is quite a bit of rust. Do you have any idea where I could get non-split rims that would fit the six lug bolt bolt pattern, or if that is not available, where I could get new or better condition split rims.
Thanks,
Jim Bates
