I know I could use this!
I found one of these a couple of weekends ago with no bed. I couldn't get a good pic by the time I went back it was dark. No one was home so I'll have to drive out there and see what is up with it.

This was referring to post #628 with the yellow dodge 1.5 or 2 ton drw dump truck.

Ewww.... steering knuckle broke? Broke loose? I damaged both on a '71 K/20 when it took off down the hill and through a barn wall (no spring on brake release and didn't quite grab). Both tires hit the posts at either end of that section of wall. Truck was still idling with lights on. I backed it up and headed up the lane for work... except I soon learned it would go anything but straight. Way toed out on both sides. The arms the tie rods mount to you could see had been bent straighter. Back then you could buy loaded knuckles from the dealership (ball-joints pressed in)

Cool find. Go check it out and let us know what you came up with when you get a chance. Hopefully with pictures.

Here's a neat little big IH dump

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Wouldn't that be handy. It's short, but heavier with bigger dump body that a light duty about same wheelbase. Tougher drivetrain for bigger snow, too. Even the flow frame is tucked up close. I'd own it!

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

Here is a 1977 Ford F-250 4x4 that I used to own. It started out life as a Fire truck with a utility box on the back. Later the Dept. decided to purchase an aftermarket 8' box, and repainted it Black over Red to match some other engines. I bought it in 2001 with 13k miles on it, however it had been overheated and had 2 cracked heads on the 400M engine. It also still had 16.5" split rims. So I sourced 2 good heads, and put new rims and tires on it. I enjoyed it for a time, kept the miles low, and then sold it. It was cool but just wasn't a GM.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

I saw this at the vintage races in Watkins Glenn back in Sept. It is a tow truck that has a rolling flat bed.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

That's a nice F250. It's interesting how they did the black on the cowl and on the back it doesn't go down to bed. I guess it's how the dept. painted the fleet

What type of tow truck? Rolling bed? More info!

I don't know much about it. I think it's a 1942. Here is '42 tanker truck, looks like the same front end.

They had a body shop in Omaha do the paint work, probably just how they decided to break up the black and red.
All of our trucks are black over red "Chicago style" now.
The Chief at the time the High-boy was purchased was on a safety yellow kick. The aftermarket box was very flimsy, and the tailgate was not strong either.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

'56 Willys, Super Hurricane, all stock with Warn overdrive. Lined up for the 4th of July parade. Remember it was right at 100 that day. Was my daily driver for years, always ran no matter how cold (even 25 below) heater worked good too. Don't know why I sold it. One of the few pics I have of it. It's a shame I never thought to take any. The older kid just graduated from Montana State as a mechanical engineer, young kid on the fender just graduated infantry training at Ft. Benning. No idea where my youngest son was, he's still hard to keep track of!
