Had a friend of mine drag a parts truck home for me. 1966 A75 with an after cooled small cam 855, 13 speed RR. Has an early Pete air leaf wadded in the back of the original chassis. Back of the cab was cut open for a sleeper. Has some IH parts on the mix as well. Has good glass, doors, windshields and radiator.

Nice find! If you aren't going to use the driver side door and might want to sell keep me in mind.

Driver's door is something I need.  Unfortunately, the limiting strap broke at some point on my '65 and it looks like the door got away from someone.  Has a Luberfiner sized dent in the door.  If I run across another one, I'll let you know.

Best regards,

Matt

Something definitely got away from someone with mine too, these mirror brackets sure are tough.

That door is a easy fix if that's all that's all that's wrong with it.

My DC 75 door looks the same way. I backed into it with a load of hay. Dan, How easy is it to fix?
Thanks. Mike

Mike,  Shouldn't be that hard to pull back out.  You need to find an old time body man up where you live to fix it.  I've got a good friend who can fix that in a heartbeat.  Man he's really good.  You should see some of the before and after stuff he did for my trucks.

My Autocar has the same cab as the 60s Reo, Diamond T, White, the short windshield one. I can find the doors with 3 separate hinges without even trying, but this aluminum cab truck has the piano hinge doors. The bottom looks about the same as far as the damage goes. I figure by the time I have this one fixed, then find a window regulator, glass, and vent window I would be ahead just finding a complete door but I'll cut the thing up before I pay what some of the people out there think the doors are worth.
