That is a exceptional 36. The sign said unrestored, I wonder how much is original and how much is not, I do not see how the paint could have survived 76 years and look as perfect as it does unless it was stored since new in a climate controled enviroment. No doubt is probably the nicest in the country.

You need to take a trip down Highway 166 in southeastern Kansas sometime. Between the 135 and Caney there's two N-model Ford's.

it was 239 cube flathead , 4 speed ,2 speed rear pullin a single axle ex army trailer with 8.25.20 tyres

the pics showed it loaded with bagged wheat harvest time. on the back written in pencil was 23 ton ,13 hundred weight ,and 7 pound [imperial mesurments] silo record 1951

Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera, we were trying to make good time and didn't have time to stop. Both were farm trucks if I remember right, one was a single-axle and was in restorable condition, the other was a tandem (I think) and in very good condition.

By the way, here's an H-model a buddy of mine found that I drove home for him:

The grill in that truck is a 66 grill. At least that would be correct in the USA. The egg crate grill was used in the 65 models over here.

Ahhh,it looks like plenty of room between cars to me!! We were always told to keep the tops up,and try to face the car forward when hauling convertibles. This looks like it was a short-haul set-up,could be a plant to rail or truckaway lot shuttle. Since it is parked by a couple of others,most likely was a publicity shot. These look a lot like E&L Transport, IIRC that was their color scheme back then.

Its a good looking Ford David, and I like the fact that you are using it for your avitar. I knew if anyone could explain the picture that you could. I feel pretty lucky to have the license plate off that truck.
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
This is an interesting picture. I looks as if it was made from an old Kodak Kodachrome slide. You can clearly see how the tops of these old truck got so bent up. That truck was probably not that old when the picture was made and it is in pretty bad shape.

It has an FE 352 engine in it. I bet it would be fast if I could talk Larry out of one of his big block FE engines he uses in his 64 drag wagon. I will pull it out and rebuild it stock unless it messed something up, then I may go the 390 or 410 route. I would love to find a 428 for it but I am sure they are getting to be expensive now days.

I suppose if a person put a wanted ad on HAMB or C/L or other Ford sites one would turn up. They are not as plentiful as they used to be. The 390 is still my favorite daily driver in a Ford.

This is supposed to be a 57 model Ute, but in this country it is a 56 model. I also see that someone has added the Fairlane fender and door trim to it. I also noticed that the quarter panel is the same as what would be the 52 to 54 models here. Very interesting vehicles to say the least.

The 56 Ford four door hardtop convertible on the top front of the trailer is also a very rare car. For the younger people on this board the term hardtop convertible started to be used when the car makers came out with the cars that had no post between the two windows when the windows were down. Prior to that only convertibles had no post when both windows were down.

Michelle, don't even think about using a '56 Ford to create a '55; the '56 is one of the best looking Fords ever. About the lack of a center post on a 4-door hardtop. That is the "B" post, the "A" post is at the windshield and the "C" post is at the back glass.

story 2 a few years later the same importer offered me a black n white 56 crown vicky one owner mint car

so i bought it for my wife , when it arrived she said thats the ugliest car shes seen!!!!

so i reluctantly sold it , abuot 6 mths later we were at a show and there was a 55 vicky painted pink n white

she said to me why dont you get me one of those!!!!!!!

we divorced a short time later!!!! lol

Great story Ron. Poor woman didn't realize what she had. I would love to have a crown vic today. Almost bought one in the sixties but changed my mind at the last minute.

John, you can rest assured if I was lucky enough to find a 56 four door hardtop I would not convert it to a 55, the car is too rare. The conversion is just one of my pipe dreams. I have no doubt it would make more than a few people scratch their heads wondering about it though. When I was a teen I had a beautiful 55 Fairlane convertible. Black with black and yellow interior. Regrettably I never took a picture of it or at least if I did, I have long since lost it. The picture of the 55 below and the interior pictures are identical to that of my car.

Looks like your 55 F-600 was "loaded for bear" and a fun trip.

What was the power train in the F-600 for grossing that much weight?? and what kind of fuel mileage??


Brocky, Alan had installed a mid seventies 391 truck engine in the 55 F-600. I don't remembe what the fuel mileage was but I am sure it was not something to write home about. It had the original four speed with the two speed rear.
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
this 56 C-600 belongs to a fellow from Colorado Springs. It sits on a Dodge motorhome chassis and has a 460 Ford engine for power. The tranny is a Ford C-6 automatic with a three speed Brownie if he needs a lower gear.

Part of Ford's "problem" in collector car circles is that most people only think of the Mustang for Ford performance even though many other Ford and Mercury models could be had with "Total Performance" equipment. I always liked the Torino GT and Cobra models which were (and still are) overlooked by the masses. Glad to hear the non-Mustang Fords are finally getting some recognization!
By wayne graham - 9 Years Ago
Robert, I have to agree with you. I think for one thing Ford got beat bad at the advertising market game. When the Allisons and others were winning big time in the Torino style with major sponsors like Miller Brewing etc Ford had a golden oppotunity. Same with the NHRA bunch. GM and Mopar were just far more creative in the selling game. That was always my take on it. Coulda used some advertising lessons from the Clydesdales. Wayne

Seen this truck about 6 years at an auction sale and often wondered about the suspension and whether it was factory fitted or after market?

Here is one fitted to an almost identical truck, so maybe it was a Ford option.
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
Bruce, it was not a Ford option. Ford did not offer tandem axle trucks until 1954. More than likely it was a popular after market option for Ford and possibly other makes as well.

Thanks Michelle, been wondering about for about 8 years now.

I know Ford did not come out with the twin screw until 1954, BUT was it possible to order a Tag axle?? OR did you have to just order a long frame overhang and have the dealer install the tag??

It would have had to be done aftermarker. No Fords had tamdem axles at all before 54, not even tags. There may have been an aftermarket supplier that Ford recomemded like they did Marmon Harrington for four wheel drive and it is entirely possible that if you wanted a tandem axle they would send the truck there to have it rigged out as they did the Marmon Harringtons before you took delivery on it from Ford.

By Glee Pitney - 9 Years Ago
Joe D. We had two of these at our Cicero Terminal (Chicago) next door to our Lube Oil Plant. We delivered bulk grease mainly to steel mills in the "steel belt" from between Chicago, eastward to Pittsburgh and every plant in between. Steel mills use huge amounts of greases and other lubricants that we transported in drums, barrels, portable containers in vans, flats and tanks. The grease trailers were insulated, so we could load and go and deliver while it was still hot-warm and could be pumped off. When I got the managing job, some of the lubricant oils were transported in tank trailers, but I greatly expanded the use of trailers for this. As I have mentioned in other postings, we started using turnpike doubles in 1969 on Indiana and Ohio Turnpikes, again out of our Cicero terminal/lube oil plant. We used a v-12 434 hp Detroit in a Freighliner with Strick trailers. These served our stations, warehouses, and direct to manufactures (car plants, steel mills). I then added two more tractors plus lube oil tanks and flat beds to the mix. a Box and a tank going down the road may not have been too exciting, but saved a third in our delivered costs. In my region we operated a 160 trucks from tank wagons to TP doubles out of 23 locations. Had a lot of fun doing it, too.

and got a lot of truckers up n runnin , the 903 n at 290 hp would do 500thousand miles plus without any major problems

i would do a inframe on them and with manifolds supplied by wreckers in the u.s build them to vt 350 hp-400hp

they were pretty crowded under that short hood and i would fabricate the pipes from the ex manifold to the turbo on both sides

to fit. lnt,s sold in the thousands down here but most of these trucks are long gone due to rusty cabs but a few months back one pulled up

next to me at the lights ,it had a dump body fitted and it looked farmiliar . a quick look under the fender and i reconised

my handywork on the exhaust of the vt903 i converted 20-25 years ago

i have a 903 n with jakes in a 74 s2 kw its got nearlly 2 milliom klms on it and ive done 1 inframe
and a cam
there only real problem was like me they loved a drink lol



same as a w900 only the hood is 2ft shorter
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
Very interesting story Ron. I hear what you are saying about most here not liking them. We had one in a Marmon Cavover and that old 903 seemed to run for ever, it never gave us any problem. I never understood why so many people thought they were junk.
By grenfell34 - 9 Years Ago
michelle being a cummins guy i get a little annoyed when guys with no real knoledge of them put them down

they were a very honest engine here even on roadtrain work

there demise here was fuel consumption and the rebuild cost was nearlly double a nt

as a note the lnt,s were avaliable with a 6-92 t but very few sold compared to the 903

they were a good truck but allmost all are gone and i had to search for that pic!!!!

By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
Wonder where that truck is today? To bad it couldn't have been saved, it is history. The salesmen here have a tendency to dress a little loud as well. I walked through the show room on my way to the parts department one day When I was decended upon by a salesman wearing a green sports jacket, white pants and green and white wing tip shoes. I have wondered to this day where he ever found a pair of green and white wing tips.
By grenfell34 - 9 Years Ago
michelle i found a little more info , it was sold to mr and mrs [red dress] colburn and the year was 1975

the second one was sold to READYMIX and was a concrete mixer also . readymix,s colours were bright pink!!!!!

the 70,s were kinda wild n a bit gaudy down here!!!!

in the 60,s here nearlly all the concrete yards had p series diamond t,s or ihc loadstars by the 70,s they were pretty tired and dated .the arrival of these modern light little fords was perfect timing and the sold like hot cakes as did there big brother the lnt 9000 for interstate long haul

as a footnote on the 70,s a old mate of mine who was a bit of a hippy in his youth reckons if ya can remember the 70,s you wernt really there!!!!! lol

I'm really a Dodge guy by default, but my Dad taught me to drive on a Model A Ford when I was about six or seven. I've attached a copy of our most recent purchase. This is the 2nd Ford truck I've owned and I'm still kicking myself for selling the first one. This vehicle is a 1980 C800 was purchased new by our FD. I remember driving and training others on it when it was new. A local highway dept had it up for auction. I couldn't see it going to a scrapper or a broker to be sold overseas so my son and I bought it. She's back at home, and it turned 32K on the way to the house. The 429 still sounds great and this is a nice driving truck. Our department had 3 of these Ford C series at one time back in the 80's. This was the fastest one that we had. Today, we're all buying these ugly custom cabs (expensive) trucks that all look the same. The C series was in my mind always a sharp looking truck.

By Jim Rose - 9 Years Ago
In Illinois in the 40s and 50s the gross weight was 72000 with doubles and 68000 for a 5 axle semitrailer rig. I seem to remember something similar in Ohio but am not sure but do know that doubles were very popular with the iron haulers in Ohio.
By Aaron - 9 Years Ago
Ron you couldn't hardly truck cross country in the US in the sixtys and early seventies, the length and weight laws were just stupid, thats why the Eastners ran gas job two axles and short stubbie Macks for many years, you couldn't run a heavyweight Peterbilt or LT Mack back there as tractor trailer, it took untill the late 70's early 80's to get and 80,000 gross to be the real deal providing you then had the length to do it,now some states allow triples.
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
There was another reason for the short doubles. I saw this happen with a hardware chain. They would load to short doubles with good specific for one of their stores in one trailer and goods for another store in the other. When the driver got to the first drop he would disconnect from the rear trailer and back the trailer closest to the truck into the dock. Unhook that trailer get back under the first trailer and and go to the next drop. Later they would go back to the first stop and retrieve the first trailer dropped and the trailer dolly and then procede to the next place and pick up the other empty trailer. I do not know if this method was very wide spread or not, I would guess probably not because I only knew of one company that did it that way.

does anyone no if this was the case in the u.s or just a 'make do' arrangement down here ????

i would really like to solve this puzzle thanks guys
By Park Olson - 9 Years Ago
'34, as a Ford and a Federal guy, (got one of each) I might shed some light. Late in life, '56ish, Federal got a GI contract for 100 4x4 airport plow trucks, all of those trucks used Ford cabs,( I think) the last of that batch even used the '57 Ford cab. Federal was in corporate turmoil at that time, relieing on special order stuff with regular production faltering. The newer cab Styleliner, from 1950, did not lend itself to use in a large truck. There was a larger "Golden Eagle" style introduced in '55, but never was produced in any quanity. There were two versions of this cab style, it was similar in appearance to the '56 Ford cab but with a completly different hood and grill.

Perhaps Jeff or others could post some pics',,,he has used the the plow truck and a Golden Eagle as WAI material some years ago.
By grenfell34 - 9 Years Ago
thanks park , i knew federal were on thin ice in the late 50,s

all federals would have came here ckd [complete knock down]

then reassembled , i guessed there was a shortage of cabs so they used the locally built ford cab

but it seems the ford cab was better suited and fitted in the states also

thanks for the info

i personally think the ones with the ford cab look better and more like a 60,s truck

the styleliner cab looked dated even back then???

thanks again for solving the puzzle

Ron, I enjoyed seeing the Federals with the Ford cabs. The 56 has and always will be one of my favorite Ford trucks. I have owned four 56 models plus three other fat fendered Fords including a 53 and a two 55's. The 54 model is the only fat fendered Ford that I have never owned.

Jim I think because of war production and time constraints, this was the was the way the war dept. chose to go. basically it was all standard Ford parts with some quick and dirty sheetmetal work to cover it all up. It amazes me how much got done so very quickly in that war effort. Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima were only 3 years 8 months apart
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
Jim, there was a method to their madness, not only what Steve said but there was also other reasons. They did not want the trucks hauling the B-24's sitting on the side of the road broke down. They were built will all Ford parts that was common to every Ford dealer in the country. One engine drove the front rear axle and the other engine drove the second rear axle. If one of these trucks blew an engine, the driver would simple pull a pin to keep the disabled transmission from shifting with the commom lever, put the dead engine transmission in nutural and drive to the nearest Ford dealer on the remaining engine. The dealers could swap the engine and get the truck back on the road very quickly. The trucks had three men on each truck. A driver, codriver and an armed guard. Anytime any two of the men left the truck to eat or what ever the one man stayed with the truck and its cargo 24/7 when loaded.

I have had the pleasure of looking over Toms truck closely and even sitting in it. A great piece of history to say the least.

Using the same Briggs Motor Bodies cab as the ET6 was the Thames Costcutter 500E series built 1953-1957. The flathead V8 was gone, replaced by 4 cylinder o.h.v. motors.

In 1965 Ford introduced the D series range, these trucks were built until the early 1980s and were replaced by the Cargo range, using the cab that was used on the U.S. Ford Cargo trucks. This truck is a bit of a hotrod, as it's fitted with a Cummins V903 which definitely wasn't standard in these trucks-they normally only ran to the Cummins V504.

on 'overnite' freight between sydney and melbourne 500 miles

By Hamish - 9 Years Ago
Thanks Michelle, that sure is a nice looking Thames Trader Mk.1 you posted. Mk.1 Traders were built 1957-1961. The white one in my photo is a Mk.2 built 1962-1965. You're dead right about the similarity of the grille design of the Mk.1 Trader to the 1953 U.S. Ford trucks.
By Hamish - 9 Years Ago
grenfell, don't worry about apologising, I'm not a Pom, I'm a Kiwi. The 330 cubic inch 6 cylinder diesel Trader motor was rated at 108 h.p., so Sydney to Melbourne would have seemed like a long night, although I guess they would have been running reasonably light.

Michelle, I don't think there was any connection between the Thames Trader cab, which I imagine was built in-house by Ford and the cab fitted to the Leyland Comet. The Ford Motor Company of Great Britain purchased Briggs Motor Bodies in the mid 1950s, and I guess this became their cab and body building department. The Leyland cab was made by Coventry Motor Panels and was known as the LAD cab because it was used by Leyland, Albion and Dodge. They didn't normally have the snout on them like this one does, probably to cover a front mounted hydraulic pump to drive the mixer.

I'd be interested to know some of the nicknames for different models of Ford trucks. In New Zealand 1938-39 models are known as barrelnoses, 1942-47s are known as Jailbars and 1948-50s are always called Bonus Built models. Bonus Built was a term that Ford used in their advertising of these first F series models. Talking to an older fellow, he said the Jailbar name came from Hot Rodders, probably in the 1960s, back in his day they were just known as '42, '46 or '47 Fords or just as V8s, sometimes even the ones with the flathead 6 cylinder motor.-Hamish Petrie.

I know this is a truck forum, but Ford cars had quite interesting nicknames down here too. 1946-48 Ford sedans were known as beetlebacks, 1949-50s were single spinners, 1951s were twin spinners. 1955-56s were Customlines. In Australia they used the 1955-56 body right up to 1959 I think. 1960-61 full size Fairlanes were known as tank Fairlanes, to differentiate them from the 1962-65 compact Fairlanes.

I've seen Ford advertising material from that era that used the term "The Bonus Built Trucks". I guess at the time Ford were really keen to get their new 1948 models to market because GM had their new Advance Design Chevrolet and light to medium duty GMCs out as 1947 models. I think Chrysler had their new Dodge B1 series trucks out as 1948 models too, while International's new L Line trucks didn't appear until 1950.

As far as I know they were not commonly refereed to as the Bonus Built Trucks. I do however remember the magazine ads labeling them as such. I remember as a kid we received the Progressive Farmer magazine. There was always a lot of Ford ads in the magazine. As soon as the magazine came I would always grab it and start looking for pictures of Ford trucks and Ford tractors.

Powered by an 8V-71T even though there's a badge on the front fender that says "Triton Power" or something. Of course it leaked itself all over my street!

David, you not only surprised us but the CL also surprised us as well. I think that is the first CL dump truck I have ever seen. With the tall cab and the short wheelbase it looks like it was squeezed up in a big vice. Since you posted a CL picture I will post a CL interior.



If I were to add a caption to this picture omitting the one at the top I would say "This is the last picture he made as he as he dove out the door as his truck plunged off into the canyon.

Looking at this picture closely I would say that is a preproduction prototype of the CL interior. If you look closely you will see that the key is turned 90 degrees to the way it is supposed to be, also the starter button next to the key does not have the rubber cover over it that the production models had.

By deguitars - 9 Years Ago
Hey Michelle, glad to surprise you! I thought it looked a bit goofy all scrunched up like you say, but didn't really think too much about it being a dump. Driver is a real nice local guy, said he hardly leaves town so he annual mileage is something like 3500 miles (small town) and even though CA keeps threatening to outlaw every truck more than six days old he said the last time he had it inspected the DOT guy claimed he'd be good for awhile yet.

In the interest of full disclosure I've always liked the interiors in these trucks, particularly the aluminum dash panels, so I appreciate that photo you posted. Don't tell anyone though, I have a rep to maintain!

P.S. I'll attach the main photo if you want to download it in full size for your files.

Cheers,

Thanks David for the full sized picture. I will have to save it as I said above, this is the first and only dump CL I have ever seen. I may have to photo shop the Mercedies emblem out thought.

Joe, you are right, it does not have a shift lever. As I mentioned above it had to be a pre production prototype, just to much stuff thats not right on it. I had also noticed that the speaker cover in the sleeper just behind the passenget seat is also incorrect. They were painted to match the interior and were located farther back directly above the fresh air vent. Right where you see the speaker and on below it the production models had a shirt closet. The shirt closet is not present in this picture. I will look for some more interior pictures of the CL and hopefully it will be a post production picture and we can see the differences.

You can see the shifter in this picture and also you can see the shirt closet behind the passenger seat.

You can also see the rubber boot over the starter switch.

Joe, ours had the same set up. I guess Alan had a knack for adjusting the air bags, it did set level most of the time. We did however have some problems from time to time with the air ride. We replaced one air bag and both the leveling valves and made countless adjustments. It was a maintenance hungry truck.
By Don Hancock - 9 Years Ago
My 78 had a lot of little wiring issues with the voltage regulator, sometimes it would charge sometimes it wouldn't. mine didn't have the air ride cab but the bottom rails of the cab busted and had to be welded and spliced to be able to raise the cab. I guess the 110 cab w/o air ride took a beating.

Mine had a 400 Cummins, 13 spd, New Way air ride, no p/s, no a/c.

I'll have to see if I can dredge up some old pictures and scan them.

By Don Bredbeck - 9 Years Ago
Hello All,

I am very new here so I am a little timid in my posting but everyone so far has been very welcoming regarding my 947 Ward Lafrance post last week. The title of this thread is Ford Fridays and I own several Fords and it is Friday. If this is boring or inappropriate plaes let me know.

I bought my first truck to restore in 2009. I found a 1968 N750 about 100 miles away. It cost me all of 150 dollars but was in pretty sad shape. I am a pretty good body and fender guy and I love rebuilding stuff. Attached are pictures of the before and after pictures. This winter I had the urge to do some heavy iron fabricating so I have started on the stake bed to complete the truck and make it show better. Believe it or not when the weather is nice it is my dailey driver, running errands and generally having fun in our small town.

I also have a 1971 W9000 in process and just picked up a 1969 F600 NAPCCO 4 wheel drive to get after.

Thanks all

I never really like the F series after the body change around 67 or 68, but this truck has no rust, which is rare for Wisconsin and it is a 4 x 4.

I was thinking of building it into either a wrecker or a gin pole oil field truck, can't make up my mind.

That is possible. Michaels is the pipeline company, they used Fords, and a lot of their equipment is 4WD. Maybe it isn't rusty because it was based in a different part of the country, so it didn't see as much salt.

Z90= W9000

2= (engine code) Detroit 6-71N

V= (Assembly plant) Louisville KY. truck plant

J90986= Consecutive unit number and also tells the year of your truck which is a 1971 model.

Next line is the wheel base, color code, model #, body code, transmission, axle.

No color code was given.

Model= W 9000 for model years 70 through 72

GGY= Custon Cab, steel cab with sleeper, W and WT series.

5= (transmission code) Fuller RTO 910, ten speed over drive

AG= (rear axle code) single speed Eaton 4:11 model # 19121

6= (Front axle code) Center point steering, Rockwell 12,000 pound axle.

Bottom line GVW HP RPM DSO

34,000 225 @ 2100 740009

The DSO code (Domestic Special Order) indicated the truck was a special order and was ordered from the Seattle district office (74).

By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
Don, here's a nice 71 for you. I Like the way he painted the air deflectors on the front corners of the cab. Also note the square headlight up grade he did. The grill paint is nice with the part between the grill bars blacked out and what looks like a KW bumper fills in the under the grill and fenders well.

By Don Bredbeck - 9 Years Ago
Michelle,

That is very nice. I think I am gonna go back and shoot my deflectors with the blue striping now. I was afraid to do that cause I didn't know how it would look from different angles. I think I will go ahead and carry the stripping around the backside of the deflectors so when you look from the rear there won't be a bunch of white showing. I also like the grill paint much better than mine, it looks like he used kind of a dull silver paint.

My original bumper was so torn up I fabricated a new one from 8 inch channel. It does leave some gaps under the head lights. I may go back and weld on some more steel on the top to close it up a little.

The square head lights are neat but belive it or not my key for knowing a truck is old enough to collect is by the headlights. If they are round I am interested, if they are square it is too new.

By wayne graham - 9 Years Ago
Don, I tend to agree with you on the headlights. The saddest thing I ever saw was a W-900 A model KW that some one had put square headlights in place of the round. Wayne
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
John, the truck is still running around in the N/E quadrant, so you probably have seen it.

Don, I agree, I think the deflectors do look better painted. The color on the grill is called argent, I have the part number if you have trouble finding it. It is pretty common so I do not think you will have any trouble. Just ask your paint people to mix you a Ford argent color from the early 70's. Your truck is a knock out as it is, but the deflectors and the grill would make it look even better. I hear what you are saying about the headlights and I agree it does make it look more period being round. On the other side of the coin, it does make for a nice up grade if you are trying to make you truck look newer. Because of the squared recess in the headlight pane it almost makes them look stock.

When I bought my LTL the area behind the grill was painted the same as the body color. When we painted the truck back to the original color I made sure that area was painted semigloss black. It made all the defference in the world.

By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
Here is a short history of the W series Fords. I did a little research this morning looking at brochures, the internet and a couple of Ford books I have and came up with this.


The W series came out in May of 1966 replacing the H series. The 66 W series did not have the air deflector on the corners of the cab. It had the big Ford letters and no side reflector on the side of the cab, the Ford crest with the model number in it was up high on the door between the vent and the bottom of the mirror.

Note there is no air deflectors or side reflectors.




The 67 model was a carry over of the 66 with a few exceptions, the very early 67's didn't have the air deflector but the rest of the production year did have them. The air deflectors that came out on the 67 models were slightly shorter and didn't wrap around the front of the cab as much as the 69 through 73.



Note the short air deflectors and no side marker reflectors.



The 68 models was the first year for the side marker light and reflectors. The light and the reflectors were in cooperated into one unit and was located in the fiberglass panel below the cab, just above and to the rear of the turn light. The 68 models still retained the large FORD letters and was still had the crest high in the door just below the mirrors, and the smaller air deflectors. The 68 model was also the first year that the aluminum cab was optional.



The side marker light/reflector is on the fiberglass panel below the cab.



The 69 models had some visible changes to them. The air deflector got longer and wrapped more around the front of the cab. The side reflector was moved to the bottom front of the door and the trucks still sported the large FORD letters with the crest still just under the mirror.



Now the side marker light/reflector has moved up onto the door and the air deflectors have got longer.



The 70 models changed a little from the earlier models insomuch as the door handles now had the push button type instead of the rotary handle. The other dead give away was the air intake was moved out board of the stack.

http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/Uploads/Images/fdf03ad9-63da-4801-a832-7518.jpg





The 71 models changed still more. The big block letter was now gone and replaced with the smaller FORD letters on the front of the cab. The Ford crest with 9000 in it was moved to the bottom of the door between the door handle and the vent. The fiberglass panel was now painted argent instead of the white in the earlier years.





The 72 model were identical in looks to the 71 in the standard models. Three Owner Operator packages were available that year to dress these truck up from the standard fair. The OO packages consisted of chassis and air intake painted the same as body color, nylon carpeting, buffed aluminum grill, deep center bumpers, two Grover air horns, torpedo cab lights, stainless west coast mirrors Numerous paint options, and dual chrome stacks.

With the 73 models came the second generation of the W series Fords. The big differences was the more aerodynamic corners and of course the L cab grill and front bumper. Interior changes included the wood grain instrument panels.





The 74 through 77 models did not change much cosmetically. There was plenty of technical changes during the last four years. There were lots of technical changes and option changes throughout the entire run of the W series from May of 66 until the end of production.

Steve,

Don Bredbeck



Michels lays pipelines, buries cable and puts up overhead electric so it is just the kind of thing they would need when working in marshes and swamps . It could have been a line truck with utility body, bucket and auger. At the time the truck was new, I think it was just Michels Pipeline, the materials division came later where possibly it was used for something like drilling for soil samples - and would account for it not being used a lot and still looking as good as it does. Red Fords with a grill guard made out of pipe and painted reflective white were a company trademark.
By Michelle Cole - 9 Years Ago
Tony, I have no idea what the deflectors were for. I bet Doug could shed some light on the subject. I can hazard a couple of guesses as to what they were for. Possibly the wind would buffet the truck or perhaps the deflectors helped reduce wind noise, other than that I have no idea.
By 359er - 9 Years Ago
Well, if I can add a little info here. I drove several W cab Fords in my past and let me tell ya, without the deflectors you could never see out the side windows or what was in the mirrors when it was raining or snowing or in inclement weather. However the advent of the deflectors didnt change it much in my opinion. Very bad cab design (too square of a box to have any kind of air flow).
By grenfell34 - 9 Years Ago
michelle is this the same cab??

By Junkmandan - 9 Years Ago
No, the White 7000 cab was somewhat similar ,but different .But as Wayne and others said, it was an attempt to help keep the side windows and mirrors cleaner from road splash . Didn't work all that great but helped a little .
By Dieseldoug - 9 Years Ago
Hi Michelle,

The W models had a fairly straight forward frontal area, as the was very little rake in the windshield area. The air deflectors broke the vacuum that was caused by the by the front of a coe as it breaks the air. It comes off the front in a wide vee shape wave, and this causes an area of a lower pressure back by the cab doors and window area. The mirrors themselves will amplify this effect also. any moisture or snow will swirl around and cloud the windows and mirrors up. it could also be strong enough to slightly pull on the doors and causing a leak of air. A lot off heat has been sucked out of a cab this way.

This effect has happened on several conventionals also, including some L models and the newer HN-80 models. The deflectors or a slight design change in either mirror shape or windshield rake solved the issue.

I hope this answers some questions.

Hello all,

That is a lot of information in the last few messages. What I wonder about is mine has big FORD letters and when I redid the truck they sure did look like they were original to me. It also has push button door handles. I think it has the larger deflectors Michelle mentioned. Michelle decoded the VIN plate and it says it is a 1971.

So how did a 71 get the big FORD letters?

Maybe the original owner liked the big letters, took them off an older one and stuck them on this one

michelle is this the same cab??

When i worked for the white dealer here there was so many of these trucks around here i guess they mush have sold as many of them as freightliners here.

I remenber seeing one of these trucks come in the years ago by wrecker that had the engine run away which was a cummins and the clutch blew up broke the fltwheel housing and dropped the trans which he and his loaded trailer ran over. The flywheel came off of the crank and got ahold of the frame rail which sawed it half into then went up and got ahold of the bottom of the sleeper and then jerked the mattress half out.Service manger told us dont bother bring it in the shop cause its totaled out.

Don, one of two things, either as mentioned above someone liked the bigger ones and replaced them or your truck was a very eary producntion 71 model and got the larger letters. It is also entirely possible that the truck was wrecked and the cab was replaced.

I had a friend that had an Econoline van with the 170 engine. There was a Hurricane coming in and he loaded up to leave town .When he left there was already some thirty to forty MPH winds coming in. He told me he had the little 170 flat on the floor trying to get out of Dodge and it was like trying to push a brick wall with the loaded van. I am sure the 240 was a big improvement.

The air controls here are on the very end of the dash all the way to the left instead of in the center of the dash as in the truck picture you posted. Is the air manifold in the truck pictured on the far left side of the firewall? That is where it is located on my truck thus the reason the air controls are on the far left. If you can get some good picture of the firewall, please post them. This peaks my curiosity.

I guess we just grow up driving with LH gear change and it becomes 2nd nature to us. Approx. half our cranes in our crane fleet are also left LH drive so I guess you could say we do it both ways. The pedals are the same as USA but its bit hard to have the gear change in the door way.

It is a '51 with no medellan on the side of the hood. That means it probably still has a flathead, but I do not know which one. I do not think they started with the Lincoln 317 Y block until '52.

The "Big Job" name was for their heaviest duty trucks. Ford changed it to "Super Duty" in '58 when they introduced to 534 CI group of enjines. The F-8 would normally have had air brakes, but since it is a fire truck it probably got ordered with Juice brakes. Also the Budd wheels are unusual as spokes were standard.

It looks in real good shape. A great find. Also I think that is a '53 Ford parked behind it.

Brocky, it should have the 337 cubic inch flathead V8, which was the biggest flathead Ford V8. Used in F7 and F8 trucks from 1948 models to 1951 models, and in Lincoln cars in the 1949 models to 1951 models.

Hamish,

The D100 is another one assembled by Vehicle Industries Nazareth (when they were associated with Chrysler). The Renault is just that - no Midliners in Israel oficially (but there were a few E9 powered Renault Magnums). No new Macks in Israel now, full stop - the owners decided the only trucks imported will be Volvo as top of the line and Renault as the cheapo brand, and no conventional trucks at all. I think the only conventional big trucks you can get in Israel nowadays are KWs and IHs.

I think they were Ford Motor Company support vehicles. They are all new, all Fords, and all have Michigan plates, and I saw another picture that I have posted below that supports what I am saying. If you look close you can see the black and white truck that was in the first picture parked second in line now with the Ford banner in it. The trucks in the first picture and all the trucks except for the first in this picture are all campers, but the truck in foreground has a large door on the side and looks more like it is a storage or tool hauling vehicle.

I've got a few of those "didn't buy" tears also!

Wayne I sure did notice that GTX!

I am surprised that there weren't more 421 GPs built but that engine option must not have been popular. Mine was a local 1 owner car (special ordered from a small local dealer) When I bought it, it was a pretty tired car with a blown up engine. I found another 421 engine and swapped all the "goodies" (tri-power parts) over to the newly purchased engine. I was out playing with it and missed a gear (shifter was worn out also) and that engine was toast too. After that fiasco, I put a 389 in with the tri-power on top, but didn't change the cam and heads. That engine held up well, but with rusted brake lines and a center coming out of a clutch, I just got tired of fixing rather than driving it. My cousin had one also and he hit a deer with his, so I sold mine to him. After that I bought a mustang. LOL

1948-1950 Bonus Built Ford Thornton tandem in New Zealand. It is a model EF29E with Eaton 1350 diffs. It's not an F7 or F8 model even though it's got the wide front axle and wide front guards-(fenders). It is based on a Canadian F6 or F155 model, Canadian F6s were available in 134", 158", 176" and (194"-Bus chassis) wheelbases. The two longest wheelbase chassis had the wide front axle and sheetmetal. Notice the makeshift counterweight on the front.

On the way to Jerusalem sometime in the 1980s, doing about 20 MPH at this point (if not less). There used to be some stupid gradient on that road way back and fully loaded with 290hp there was only so much one could do... Truck is modified for Israeli headlight height regs, hence the not quite right appearence.

The other two are also typical of the period: an F700 from the local assembly plant and a Volvo from the time in which Volvo was the competiton.

In the background you can see old burnt out armoured trucks left there in memory of those who died on the convoys to besieged Jerusalem in the War of Independence.

Are they related to the inline 6s that were in the bigger Ford tractors and eventually carried over to the New Hollands. I've heard those were related to the Ford medium duty 6 cylinder diesels
By Hamish - 8 Years Ago

The name Dagenham would come from the English Ford plant at Dagenham in Essex. This family of engines were first used in the E1A Fordson Major tractors introduced in 1951. The tractors only used four cylinder versions-spark ignition engines-199 cid in the petrol tractor and 220 cid in the kerosene tractor. The diesel version was 220 cid.
The first use in trucks would be in 1953 when the 500E series Thames Costcutter trucks were introduced. Costcutters used the 220 cid four cylinder engine in both petrol and diesel versions. The Costcutter model was based on the 221 cid flathead V8 powered ET6 trucks that were built from 1949 to 1954 or so. There was also a diesel version of the ET6, the 79 h.p. Perkins P6 powered ET7. ET6 and ET7 trucks that were built from 1949-1953 were badged Fordson Thames. Incidentally the English Fords were a bit behind the times, the ET6 introduced in 1949 was the first English Ford truck to have hydraulic brakes, although they still used a torque tube driveshaft setup with radius rods.
In 1957 the cab over engine Thames Trader range was introduced, Traders were built from 30 cwt (cwt=hundredweight, 30 cwt =1 1/2 tons) size to 7 tonners. They used 4 cylinder 199 cid petrol and 220 cid diesel engines and the first 6 cylinder English built Ford engines-298 cid petrol and 330 cid diesel. The Trader was a great step forward for Ford, with very modern styling, synchromesh gearboxes, an open driveshaft and no more radius rods and the option of Eaton 2 speed axles for the first time in English Ford trucks. Traders were built until 1965. There was also a conventional, normal control version of the Trader introduced in 1962 that used a cab that had been used on German built Ford trucks.
In 1965 Ford introduced the D series range of trucks, D series diesels used slant versions of the Ford 4 and 6 cylinder diesel engines. Petrol powered D series used Canadian Ford 240 and 300 6 cylinder truck engines. The former normal control Trader range was renamed the Ford K series and continued to use the 4 and 6 cylinder upright petrol and diesel engines. The slant diesels used in the D series were built in 242 cid and 253 cid 4 cylinder versions and 330 cid, 363 cid and 380 cid 6 cylinder versions. I'm not sure what the Dorset name refers to, perhaps from 1965 or so these engines were built at a Ford plant in Dorset.

I don't think so Steve. The later Ford engines would date from around 1965 when the 6X series 2000-5000 tractors were introduced. These engines were built in 3 and 4 cylinder sizes and from 1968 the 401 cid 6 cylinder was used in the 8000 tractor. These engines were sleeveless-they didn't have cylinder liners, the earlier English Ford diesels did have cylinder liners. Whether the later Ford engines were related to the small 4 cylinder diesel engines built in 144 cid and 172 cid sizes and used in U.S. Ford tractors from the mid to late 1950s to about 1965, I don't know. There was also a 6 cylinder 242 cid diesel engine used in the Ford 6000 tractor in the early to mid 1960s.

The 401 cid-6.6 litre and 474 cid-7.8 litre 6 cylinder truck engines were used in U.S. built Ford trucks until Ford sold their tractor and farm equipment business to Fiat. Fiat took these engine lines as part of the deal, I think. In N.Z. we had Australian built Ford Louisville LTS8000 trucks with the 7.8 litre Ford diesel at 240 and 270 horsepower ratings. After the sale to Fiat, these trucks used the Cummins C8.3 litre engine.

Thanks Mike.

The E1A "new" Fordson Major tractors all had Dagenham built engines, the earlier E27N Majors had the old side valve Fordson engine in the petrol and kerosene tractors. The last of the E27N Majors had the option of a Perkins P6 diesel, but still only had 3 forward gears. The new Majors introduced in 1951-52 were a giant leap forward from what by the late 1940s was a very primitive tractor.

Don't know much about the Ford on top, but according to a July, 1978 Railway Equipment Register, the boxcar it's sitting on is from the Green Mountain Railroad Corp., which operated 50 miles of track. They had connections with the Boston & Maine at Bellow Falls, VT., and the Delaware & Hudson and also the Vermont Rwy at Rutland, VT. Owned equipment in 1978 included 163 boxcars with 500, 600, and 700 series numbers and 6 locomotives. Car repair billing went to a D.A. Dominguez at Two Embarcadero Center in San Francisco. Ca. May have to go back further to find this car number unless it was for company use only and then it probably wouldn't be in the Register.

P.S.---Looked up GMRC in a 1975 RR Register and found that they only owned 14 boxcars then, 501-514. Seems they bought a lot of RR cars between '75 and '78.

Bill, those are fantastic pictures. Yes they did run two locations for a short period of time. The downtown location was located at Louisiana at Rusk streets in downtown Houston. Some time about 56 or 57 they built a new location out on Katy road about eight or ten miles west of downtown. Katy Road was also known as Hwy. 90 west. Both locations were open for a short time but eventually the downtown location was sold and the building torn down and a new office building put up. The Katy road location was later renamed Don McMillin Ford. Don was the son of Earl. The McMillin dealerships are no longer on Business today.

Bill, to me it was always a bit of an exotic truck, we never got Ford's glamour models, it was either F-Series in the 50s and the 60s, English D-Series in the lower classes and conventional LT 9000 at the heavier end, all very basic. Interestingly, Ford produced some very advanced COEs just before it dropped out of the market in Europe. Nobody thought of importing it or the US model into Israel, so that the segment was left to Volvo, Scania, MAN, Mercedes, White, Freighliner and KW (and the few GMC Astros the deaf used to buy).

http://www.fordtranscontinental.nl/Werkmappen/galleries/Middleeast/x.jpg

The Transcontinental, based on the W 9000 but with European (Berliet) cab. Most had Cummins NTC / Fuller combinations. As tall as the US model in comparison with the other trucks of that era...

This is a nice picture of an early CLT 9000. Note the aircraft at the top.
Michelle, this picture was taken at Ford's Dearborn Proving Grounds, atop the 20% test grade. Been by that spot many times.

David, I had no clue where the picture might have been taken but I did strongly suspect it was a factory photo. Thanks for the info.

Thank you Bill, I am slowly getting better. I took a test trip this past week to Mississippi. I took my mother over to Miss. to visit some relatives. I drove my Mustang but I did find out that it did not bother my leg to make a twelve hour drive and also my strength is coming back because I was not wiped out when I got there.

I just made this picture yesterday, I am on my way to Houston Monday to get the fuel tank leveled out. If you look close you can see the fuel tank is lower at the front, the mounting bracket is bent where someone ran over something and bent it. The one on the trailer came off our old truck and is perfectly straight. That fuel tank has been bugging me for months, I am finally going to do something about it.

Until a couple of months ago I had never seen that truck, now it seems to pop up every few days. I am assuming that it is a recent restoration that is just now making the truck show circuit.

No worse than any other entry level truck of the era. With a Cummins engine, Fuller transmission and Eaton rears it was no more of a dog than any other similarly equipped truck, regardless of make. In fact they were probably one of the better styled than most entry level trucks of the time and better styled than a lot of so called established trucks of the sixties. Each and every time I have had it at a show it was attracting a larger crowd than any of the trucks parked near me.

This may not be the right place to post this but...........

You have here a photo of a coach built 1939 Ford with a double cabin & body.
Next to it is a 1939/40 Dodge, also with a locally built cabin & body.


Based on the assortment of vehicles in this yard, I believe the photo may have been taken in Norway after 1940.

Can anyone give any further information on the Ford such as the bodybuilder etc.?

Please feel free to post any pictures of Ford trucks on this thread. Fords built for the military are always welcome.
By bill murray - 8 Years Ago
Thank you Michelle:

As you have probably noticed on other threads, my fields of interest sort of governs the fact that my digital online archives are mainly military trucks and cars 1935-1945 and US vehicles sold to assembled in or manufactured in other countries.

I have not gotten to Ford Fridays yet, but will soon and I appreciate I can participate with that type of coverage.

My concern with my earlier post is that I was asking a question of the members rather than just posting a photo and a quick search did not turn up a "What is this truck" thread. If it exists, maybe someone can point me to it.

Bill

Thank you as well Jeff:

In fact, this is one of the most member friendly Forums out of the dozens I belong to.

I will shift gears a bit in my attempt to do a country by country presentation and reserve that bit for the countries not normally covered on a Forum like this.
So, for Canada, the UK, Germany, the US etc. I will just sprinkle US vehicles found in my archives amongst the existing threads such as this one.

Here are three from Canada, a 1935 half track, an ordinary Royal Canadian Army 1935 normal truck and I believe a 1939/1940 COE, also a slightly militarized normal truck.

And now, a few from the UK. 3 ambulances, two in use in the UK 1940 models and one supplied to Spain during the Spanish Civil War by Harvard University of the US and I don't know if it was supplied to one side or the other or just to the conflict in general.
