Today, HC 165 said goodbye to it's big brother before it makes the trip to it's new home. A big thank you to Kenny O for the transport!

After conferring with Warren Richardson, this is a 1944 model.

Hello,

I just bought an HC 147 That needs a full restoration and I was wondering if you had any manuals on your or you could send me some more pictures so I can rebuild mine. I am in MA and if you are local it would be amazing if you could let me swing by to look at it. Any help would be amazing.

Thank you, Rob

Rob, welcome to Just Old Trucks ! John may be able to help you but I'm certain he would also refer you to Warren Richardson. Warren knows more about Sterlings than anyone I know and he also owns an HC147, which also needs a complete restoration. It's very possible Warren knows some history on your truck. I'll make sure he sees this. How about some pictures of your Sterling ?

Rob, Welcome to Just Old Trucks and to the Sterling truck community!  Jeff told me that you were seeking HC147 information.  I'd be more than happy to provide some. I am very curious about your truck and whatever you might know about its history. It would be great to see some pictures! Mine is a 1938 model and the truck on the right side of the attached photo.http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/2a00566e-942b-455d-86fa-53f5.jpg

Hi Rob ROBERTHC147 - I sent you a PM regarding Sterling HC147 information.  Look below your name when you log in and you should be able to get to my message by clicking on PM. It only took me a few years to figure that out!

Rob, here is a little info on the HC147, I'm going to guess that Warren's pm has some of this too.

This HC147 is from about 1940 and has the early cab used from 1938 to 1945.

This HC147 is circa 1946 and has the newer cab used from 1945 to 1948.  Notice the taller windshields and the larger window in the door.

This is the dashboard of the 1938-45 cab

If the corners of your windshield are rounded then you have the 126 cab which was used from 1948 to 1950 in the HC series. Other models used it until 1953.

If your hood has 4 vent doors your truck was most likely equipped with a Waukesha 6SRKR flathead 6 cylinder engine. If it has 5 doors it was most likely Cummins diesel powered. Your serial number should be on the left front frame rail behind the front bumper. It will read "147HC6XXX or XXXX.

I got these pictures from Warren except for the last one.

The wrecking Corp truck, what a classic looking dump truck, I'd like to have something like that in my yard! I quite like the older model dash but the cab lines on the late model cab are a little more appealing to me.
