Is it just me or does it look like a trailer kissed the back of the sleeper? Looks rather "wrinkled" there...
By 251 - 10 Years Ago
Appreciate you guys clearing up the "wavy" sleeper issue. When I take truck pictures I use a polarizing filter which helps eliminate glare and reflections. Still interesting how between the reflection and rubber on the back gave the illusion of damage.

From Facebook, on the far right is the first Freightliner flat face COE, built for Lee & Eastes in '53. It's the only one with the short grille. This lot was at Raleigh St & 19th Av. There were at least 2 of these used truck lots with different phone numbers on the sign..

More great pictures, thanks Jeff. The church made locating that lot easy. Raleigh is the next street over from Quimby so that lot would be across the street from the back of the Freightliner buildings. This WAI is in that lot, too. It's backed up to the grey building next to the church.  Things have changed too much on Quimby to match anything in the background of the pictures of that lot.

This is what Rocky Blakewood said about that truck on the other forum :

"I'm afraid we never will know what she really is. According to Chuck Willie, who was Production Manager of the Freightliner's Portland Parts Plant when she was bought and brought into the plant for restoration, the title actually says she is a 1937 Fageol. Unfortunately, I've never seen her title so I can't confirm that.

When the paint came off, the aluminum decks and skirts had many drilled holes that had been subsequently filled and did not match the holes in the cab. My belief is this not her first cab.

Ken Self was certain that she was built in Salt Lake City. Although the Freightliner stocks of aluminum was confiscated for WWI, the unused parts weren't. He told us that while Freightliner had been told not to build any more new trucks, repairing worn out trucks and putting them back on the road was acceptable. He felt this truck might have been repaired a little more completely than others.

The cab that is on her matches everything I have been able to determine about the model 600 shovel nose cab, but beyond that, there isn't enough evidence to be confident of much else.

My mind keeps working. Was this possibly one of the Monkey Ward trucks that got a shovel nose cab put on before Salt Lake City shut down? Was her original body a model 100 that was replaced when it began to break up? Or a model 400 since Ken Self and Glen Watkins have indicated they had windshield frame cracking problems that it was easier to replace the cab than repair?"

All I know is what I read in the papers, but, #184 was built at the Fageol plant in Oakland in '37, the 'Monkey Ward' trucks were built at the CF shops in Portland in '39 and the Freightways/Freightliners were built at Freightways Manufacturing (name was changed to Freightliner Corporation in August '42) in Salt Lake City '40-2.

Here's a bigger version of this picture. I fixed it up but the original is at the Portland Archives here.

http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/41f5e4a4-a860-4c10-b125-d0f0.jpg.

It's dated there as 1950 but it has to be early '40s (I'm guessing '42 based on the license plates) because the truck has just Freightways on it. Freightways was thought up by CF in 1940 with 9 other companies where CF would coordinate shipping among the member companies and the entire trip would be billed as Freightways. The government decided it was a monopoly and made them break it up in 1943.

PIE was a member of the group which is why they had Salt Lake City built Freightliners.

These pages (from Hathi Trust) list the companies involved and the final decree including the prohibition on using the name Freightways by itself.

Many thanks to John Frances for the old photos! If you work in the sphere of wallwork trucks for many years, then you start to treat these cars differently, especially their history. I once even went to the museum to see where it all started, what the tracks were like many years ago. This is a history and I believe that it should be known, studied, because it is our past and there is something to be proud of. And also helps in the work when sometimes you tell customers about the history of a manufacturer, thanks to others for interesting articles.

To me, the Freightliners with the old round headlites either two or four far surpass the square headlite ones in looks. Same for Pete and KW. Old standard cabs and square headlites dont go together. Just my opinion.

One of the more unusual trucks produced by Freightliner was this 8X4 FLD which was built to Israeli max weight regs in the 90s allowing up to 54T GCW on 7 axles semi trailers. In reality wights were far higher (90T GCW was not unheard of) as people overloaded on a regular basis. This was of course known to the dealer so they drew our stupid specs which led to a truck notorious for being uncomfortable when not heavily loaded (the joke was you came back home, parked the truck and it carried on shaking for half an hour - this was truly a freightshaker). But it did the job. The truck in the pic (taken by O. Jano, whos father's truck it is) was in use until very recently and only retired because regs changed a grandfathering expired.

carlotpilot your Freightliner looks like it was built for the auto hauling. That is the only place I ever saw them used. Is there a normal doghouse in it or larger ? Any interior pictures ? Thanks Joe D.

I remenber these comeing in the shop when JB had some. They first had stairs that rolled out when you want to get in and they had a problem with them so it looks as they have install simple steps on this one.The steps that rolled out was to roll back in when the door was closted but did not alays do it. It was a programing glich in the ECU and that was what so many come in for. A simple download was installed to replair.

If I had the money, here's what I'd like to own. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1979-freightliner-/190717061123?pt=Commercial_Trucks&hash=item2c679f6803 Painted in the Las Vegas paint scheme, same design and colors as the last Freightliner Dad drove. No connection with this truck, if I did I darn sure wouldn't be selling it.

OK second try at this. I thought this was already posted but I will give it another shot.

Seen today at the ATHS Northwest Chapter Show. I think it is a 1970. Has a different front emblem on it and mismatched steps from one side to the other. 318 Detroit. Kind of a neat use for it.

My friend just got his 55 Freightliner going on Saturday. The engine came out of my Kenworth when I replaced it with the 400. It is a NHCT 270 with the turbo removed, backdrop manifold installed and straight pipe. He has been working on it since September.

Found this on Youtube and for a couple days was trying to figure out who it might be.



I am about 99% sure it is this truck.

If my pictures match the video, I think it is George Strangeland. I can't remember if I have spoken to him or not. The youtube handle seems to look like it would be him too.

Mark,

Looks to be a late 50s or early 60s White, either a 4000 or a 9000 with a corporate (Acar) cab.


Thanks Doug.. I recognized the Acar cab, but the grille making me think Pete....


Almost looks like a Western Star emblem on the hood, grille doesn't look right though.

Gettin' your feet tangled up in the steering wheel is bad, but foot prints on the headliner is worse. LOL
I got my feet caught under the passenger seat once, got scars to prove it. (the rest of me was outside the car getting dragged)

Steve, If I remember correctly foot prints on the head liner was a really good thing. Sounds like you must have been doing it wrong. Is that a Wisconsin thing? Wayne


It always meant one of two things, Your car was upside down, or you were getting married soon. LOL Neither one was necessarily a good thing.

Is it just me or does it look like a trailer kissed the back of the sleeper? Looks rather "wrinkled" there...


I think there is a rubber flap on the back edge of it.

I know it has a 5th wheel, but do you think it might have been designed as a auto side loading garbage truck?

John, I never realized there was a second lot. I knew about Freightliner's used truck lot across the street from their Quimby Street plant, but I was not aware that this one you posted was different. It turns out I have some photos of the Raleigh Street and 19th Avenue lot as well. These first 3 photos are that same lot. The last image of the No-Name is across from the Quimby Street plant. All these photos are courtesy of Rocky Blakewood.
