This is something everybody in here should watch. Now it is positive
there is real talent and craftmanship in here. Satisfaction comes when
you work with a 50 year old truck each day side by side with new
ones and the work gets done. Comments like the other day on the scale
guy behind me comes up with a frown its got air brakes?? Yep got
power steering to and its paid for! Me not being a wise guy to him, i said
well maybe you were born to late and missed out on the good stuff.
Agreed, that is a really clean conversion, can't believe how smooth that shifts! What are the plans for use of the truck?
It's really just a big toy. I have no plans to use it commercially, it has historic plates so I can't legally haul anything. I was motivated to do the conversion so I could drive it on the freeway and keep up with the big boys!
I drove it to the ATHS (American Truck Historical Society) national truck show in Pleasanton Ca. this past May. I use it around town on weekends (any excuse to drive it) and take it to work friday's (36 mile round trip)
Nice truck,rustyrelic!! I had my diesel56 running,but traded it off,and wish I had the gumption to install a baby cummings 12 valve in my 56 f600.
hAVE TOO many trucks now.....but that diesel sounds great.
