I have never seen an F800 M/H, probably didn't convert a lot of them. But alas, rare doesn't always equate to valuable. The truck probably has gears in the 6's or deeper, meaning 40-45 mph would be flat out. It will take a special kind of collector to pony up for that one.

That Girl is a long way from home. It is an EX CAF (Canadian Armed Forces) truck likely Army. The dog tags on the door are the dead give away. As well as the Paint code of 3-13 from the 1GP-12A Canadian Paint Standards that were in use in the era on the door dog tags. This was the standard colour of CAF vehicles in the era.

The Green that is on the chassis is the original colour the truck would have been as delivered. There are still traces of it on the chassis, axles, and Cab.

Wonder what stories she would have to tell on how she ended up states side.

I have seen 4 MH F800’s on Craigslist over the years.

They will go much faster than that.

Thanks for saying that they are not valuable. Let’s discourage interest in the trucks as much as we can.

I think more big truck awd conversions were done then people think. This truck is over 60 years old! And it has survived high steel scrap prices years ago when people were stealing man hole covers off the street to turn in for cash. Plus these things were used up and then used some more. So yes, probably rare today but maybe not in 1965. I also believe that rare does not equal money. But what it's worth to the seller is up to him. Find me another F4 Coleman or MH F2 or F3? Compared to what I would sell mine for his is cheap. Plus everyone starts hi on price so you can work down with a serious buyer.........imho anyways.

You guys in higher population areas have got to see way more stuff than those of us who live where antelope out number humans,lol.
Not sure on the going faster though. I practically lived in a 74 F750 M/H one winter working on the Alaska pipeline. 45 was wailing pretty good on that one, 50 against the governor. We had dozens of them fot mechanic trucks, some F-600 and they all went about the same.
