Thanks for the info on it. I was always told 1969.....but I don't doubt that I was misinformed.

Also, it's a 4+4 transmission and the secondary has a little different shift pattern than your average 4 speed transmission. 3rd and 4th gears are swapped around in comparison to where they would be on say an SM465 or NV4500.

Re: GM Semis



More pics from Harm. Used to own American trucker. May remember pics of his car hauler from the magazine. A bigger truck nut you won't find.
Glad to be friends

The pattern that you have desrcibed for the Aux Trans is actually the usual pattern for a 4-Speed.

Must be fun to drive!

I was thinking maybe '66,but could be '67.

Man,those hay hauler pictures are the best. Like I said,I love those truck trailer rigs...especially hay wagons!

Tim, the Directional Lights only kind of gives us an "indication". The real way to tell would be by the VIN Number.

Although rare, it could also be a '65. I'm not sure how many they made, but I have never seen one that I know of or even seen one for sale. But I have found some literature and early factory photos that were labeled as '65.

Re: GM Semis

Some great looking trucks showing some nice history. Too bad there aren't many of these on the road any longer. Just to see some in a show once in a while would be fun.

Re: GM Semis

That CrackerBox is sure pulling one heck of a trailer. Eight Axels!!

I would hate to go through a Toll Booth that charges Per Axel (11 Total).

Re: GM Semis

Yeah,I think it's silly when states require such things. It's just a tandem tractor and it's not like more weight is on the trailer than any other tandem. Thing is,the roads seem to wear just the same in multiple axle states as ones w/o such requirements. They did some BS here in MD where all the dump trucks went to triples or add a tag or haul less. Nothing changed except the cost to truckers.

Not a semi,but looky here. Dual steer axles and single rear:

Re: GM Semis

Tim, I believe that truck is a Semi. I wouldn't have known it myself, but I read a story about those trucks that either that company or possibly by the previous outfit that would haul trailers one way and use the tank to back-haul fuel. I believe the outfit was in Maine. They said the idea worked good until some kind of road requirement law changed that made it no longer worth it.

I remember reading something about bob-tailing empty was a bear to drive.

Look close, I believe we can see the 5th Wheel.

Thanks for pointing that out. I don't see a 5th wheel...or can't make it out. So,is that a trailer that's sitting behind it a ways back and something else. I thought all that was part of it and maybe it was some sort of ready-mix rig closer?
