    I'm waiting impatiently for more info. I'm hoping they don't realize what they have and I can get a couple or maybe even all of them :)

    I do believe I see a 702 V-12 in those pics.

    I have been waiting for your reply, I knew you would spot that 702. 2 1/2 to 4 miles to the gallon on a good day;). What do you think of that 48 FWD? that came from Port Angeles
    Power & Light. Here is a pic of the rear drive axle, tell me what you see.

    On a second thought... Didn't FWD produce their own axles for the most part? That way they could match the front and rear closely.

    This one has FWD on the back side of the rear housing, plus it looks like it's fabricated rather than a forged axle.

    I gotta say this much, the FWD is a neat truck and would be fun to restore and play with... But I really want that red early 60's Chev pickup!. In high school I had a blue 1960 big window that came with a 6 cylinder that ran like crap, so I stuck a cheap 307 in it. It actually ran pretty good. Carter AFB and rams horn exhaust manifolds with the original 4spd trans. It also had coil springs in the rear. Good ride but it needed the best in shocks.

    Here is a nice example of a 1961 B75, that grille with that cab made a real looker.

    Currently on craigs list. Wausau or Northern Wi. The owner is kind of wishy washy on the price, he might want $4,500, or maybe he'd take under $1,500 cause he'd have to haul it to the scrap yard and maybe cut it too.

    "Best offer.
    So far this is what I know
    1500 Scrap
    Old farmer told me tranny was worth 3000"

    Whatever you paid for this midwest rustbucket, you'd be better off starting with something from WA or OR, but then you'd have to haul it if you're in the midwest.

    That's a model 921 Diamond T and those are pretty hard to find. This 921 below has been for sale for awhile now, they have been asking the silly price of $9,000.
    Real worth is about $4,000 to $5,000. But thanks for posting those old T's were neat looking old rig's.

    I had to go back to this one because no one even replied, maybe didn't know how rare this Freightliner is. This Freightliner is a 1960 only 15 prototypes
    were built between 1960 and 1965. This one was #2 and only two were built in 1960. The fiberglass hood and body parts were built by a marine company
    in Portland Or. This truck has only had one owner, he bought it in 1961. There is one other one left it's a day cab. It was bought a few years ago and
    supposedly is in Missouri. The same guy who owns that one has been trying to buy this 60 but I doubt he will get it. I keep an eye on this truck twice a
    month.;)
