Funny, I was thinking the same thing. However, I could think of worse predicaments to be in

Normally an update here means I've actually done some work on the WB28, but I'm afraid that is not the case. However, today I did procure some parts I needed, and ended up with more than I bargained for. A friend with a 1957 WC20 decided he needed the convenience of late model parts, and is installing his WC20 cab on a later chassis. When he realized that the original under-apron fuel tank would not fit his new chassis he offered it to me. We agreed on a price, and all I had to do was pick it up 150 miles away in south Florida. This week we were discussing when I was going to come down, and I mentioned I needed a 5th wheel too. He said he had one I could have for free, but there was one catch: I had to take the whole WC20 rolling chassis it was mounted on. It seems he had to move in a few weeks and needed to be rid of it. So, I am now the proud owner of a 1957 WC20 chassis that looks to be in very good condition. The tires are 10 x 20 radials and have just a little weather checking, the front and real axles are complete with air brakes, and the steering box is there as well. The rear end has "White" cast into the pumpkin in large letters. I don't know what I am going to do with this thing but I have it under cover in my barn for the time being.

My new fuel tank. It looks to be in good shape. Complete with all the brackets and hangers.

Jeff, you aren't doing too bad, at least you are acquiring usable parts of the correct make(s).

Jeff, do you have the engine also?  If so, what model is it?  People are frequently asking about engines.  That axle is a later model axle, maybe a 134C?  Ratio stamped on the pinion carrier.

That fifth wheel looks large for a WC 20, so it will be good for your beast.  Is it 36" wide?

Bruce, I don't have the engine or transmission. This truck has an unusual recent history. The previous-previous owner of this 1957 WC20 was replacing the original White engine with a Cummins 6BT and mating to the original transmission. The conversion was pretty far along with just some plumbing and wiring left when he lost interest. The previous owner bought the truck with the intention of finishing the conversion. However, he has a very good job managing large construction projects and has to move every year or two, so he decided the truck need more modern and readily available parts. He is now installing the cab and sheet metal on a late model Dodge 4x4 chassis.

The 5th wheel is 36". I can't find a name on it. I'll have to post some photos and see if anyone recognizes it. The mechanism appears to be free and not binding.

Eddy, there is room for the new Federal. Or were you referring to a "future" truck ??

Finally got re-started on the WB28 dis-assembly. We got the fenders off last July and then got distracted by big wreckers. This weekend we found the time to get the hood and radaitor/grille removed. The cab will be next.
