Brocky, when I initially discovered the truck it had a sander on the rear but no plow or plow mount. I had no use for the sander (which was in poor condition anyway), so it was discarded. It looks like there are some mounting holes in the frame between the front spring hangers and bumper that could have held a plow mount at one time, but I’m not familiar enough with these mounts to know for sure.

Per Mr. Oshkosh, this truck was built in May, 1958 and sold to what would be come the FAA in Anchorage, Alaska. And here’s a nerdy detail - this truck was delivered to the Territory of Alaska, as we didn’t achieve statehood until January of 1959.

Also, here’s a little more background on why the truck was retired - transfer case issues. When I acquired the rig it’s transfer case had been dismantled and left outdoors for years and is not salvageable. I’ve found another at a wrecking yard in Nebraska that will begin it’s slow journey here (truck-barge-plane) next week or so.

Hmmm.... sounds like a chance to make a new version of the film "Planes, Trains and Automobiles"

The new (to me) transfer case is on it's way! Photos taken (by C&H Truck Parts in Nebraska) after removal from the donor truck show a nice and clean auxiliary section. Hopefully I can get this thing moving under it's own power before the snow arrives!http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/4f799c24-d016-40b2-bd71-027d.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/90730869-f55d-4f18-8f23-2045.jpghttp://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/406d9a0b-cbb4-4c52-bc24-fdb0.jpg
