All nice pictures!

The B-79 is a fairly rare truck with only 10 built.  Cummins V8 under the hood with dual stacks. 

V8265?


My memory cells were thinking 265 HP NA Cummins.

Thanks.

This is a 1960 CCJ article about the new V8-350/VT8-430. It says in the first paragraph that one of the specific uses was pulling Thruway doubles. The B-79s were built in 1961.

That D-series must be somewhat rare also, not many seen around. But I guess nobody thought at the time of retirement that medium cabovers would ever be collecable.

John,
Your McBride picture is of a set of early NYS Thruway doubles. McBride was one of the largest milk haulers from upstate NY into New York City.

Fine looking B!

Just looking at those tarps make my shoulders ache.
