    That's why it's a parts pile. Rode hard and put up wet.

    That truck has been for sale for quite a while, he was talking about cutting it up if it wasnt sold by a certain date, well that date was a year ago. It takes some effort to continue to post on craigslist and take the random emails from whoville.

    13speed is an odd transmission for a winch truck I would think.

    Oh I like RD 405 model like the one above, one of the longest hoods continually built. These are hard to find, either scrap or already restored.

    Oh I am aware!! B Macks, Corn Queens, the old GM Series, Ford and Dodge. Roomier were the LJ LT Dogs, Petes, KWs, Stars and Cars. Got to where when got in the old Ford 750/850 GMs Bs and Corn Queens series would put a welding beanie or take off my ball cap as the Button on top would invariably be driven into my skull.

    I dare say the old wagons were built for 5’6-8” men weighing in at less than 170lbs
    Spring ride Bostrum seats
    Armstrong steering
    Really poor ventilation and heat systems
    No insulation to speak of
    Were some tough times

    56 Diamond I drove as company wrecker was similar, then add a trans hand brake lever a Four speed tied to a Brownie jump seat if had one on a box or frame bolted to the floor
    Same White style cab tiny cramped loud and off temp

    That's what I learned to drive, a 66 Freightliner CF day cab. And very worn out.
