I think that's Mount Shasta in the background.
Beautiful truck.

Just a question for the DT experts on here. Does anyone know what the story is regarding the extra 2 rear corner windows in the McLaughlin Body Co. built cabs? Were they a deluxe cab or did all cabs produced in the later 1940s have this arrangement? As far as I know the McLaughlin cab ran from 1936-1949 when it was replaced by the IH Comfo Vision cab. Over time the roof height must have been raised quite a bit because the 1936-37 trucks seem to have much smaller windshields than later trucks.

Sorry it has taken me this long to reply..
Just got off the phone with Leroy Gurganus and he states that these 5 window cabs were a (possibly only post war??) factory option with this cab.. And a separate option from the prewar Deluxe cabs.

Thanks very much Brocky.

It would be interesting to see a 931F pictured beside this one. I do not ever remember seeing a model 961 other than this one. They look very similar to each other.

flogged these pictures from the interweb I have never seen this model before but looks pretty classy to my untrained eye

Paul
This is 1962 (post White purchase) model 961 (which I had never heard of) thus the optional Autocar cab and a 931 cast radiator and front sheet metal, with a set forward steering axle owned by Paul Moneymaker of Seattle. Yes he has spent some big bucks tricking it out with a lot of chrome and extras.. Below are some pictures I took of it at the Yakima Wash show in 2013. Possibly this 961 number was new for this combo of options???http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/a23abff6-ffa7-40da-b180-c092.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/031030de-c1bb-44c8-8f00-b601.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/e9fa6a9f-5f1f-4db4-b501-1c91.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/619951a5-3bf4-4c30-b731-f373.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/8a31d32c-5fdd-4289-be65-7726.jpg

Around my area the muck farmers have rebuild those "G" tractors so many times there probably isn't an original part left on them.  David Bradley made a smaller version with a single rear wheel that were used on small farms.  Great cultivating tractors because of the visibility.
