Re: GM Semis

My biggest regret about not buying something was a 53 Cabover Chevy from Anchor Motor Freight that pulled a carhaul trailer. It was in great shape, 2 speed vacuum rear end with air brakes. I just couldn't spend the $800.

Re: GM Semis

I haven't been here for a while but I was redirected today. Someone mentioned Anchor Motor Freight and a 53 COE. I have photos of many old Anchor Clankers. Here's a photo I shot on a Sunday in 1985. Anchor's big yard in Baltimore. These trucks were not idling but in years before that, when fuel was cheap, Anchor left their truck running at idle all night.

Re: GM Semis

Cool picture.

Most, if not all of those trucks should have 6-71's.

Even though some say no, idling them seems to be OK.

But not 6V-53's. A petroleum company I knew that ran 6V-53 Oil Trucks used to start them about 4 in the morning and let them idle till the drivers came in around 7. Just about every one eventually developed engine problems. A 53 seems to have good Oil Pressure when it's cold, but drops off once it's warmed up. Same with my 2-53. Shows great pressure cold, but low when warm. I try to avoid idling it any more than 5 minutes.

Hearing all those Detroit's all idling at the same time must have sounded pretty cool though.

I worked for Ryder hauling out cars of a railhead in MA. Every day I heard about 30 6-71's idling while we loaded.
We would be sent down to the Port of Baltimore and I went by the GM plant in the picture many times.
I had a 6v92 in a Chevy Bruin first. and then it was 6-71 non-turbos for 10 years. Beat the piss out of them all day, come to a traffic light and watch the oil pressure light come on dim, and go back at it again. They all leaked more oil than they burnt. If you needed to know where to unload at a dealership, just look for the straight line oil stains were from the oil dripping off the front axle and tie rods. The nonturbos very rarely blew up but the would wear out. My ears still ring from driving them. We didn't leave them running too much in the winter in New England (Unless it was -10) because they just needed a wiff of nose candy (ether) to start. Not much power compared to other trucks so you really had to pay attention if you wanted to make time, Got cramps in my right leg from trying to push the go pedal harder.
In the picture,I'd say the round nose 9500's and 95's were 6-71's and the square nose Bruins and Brigadiers were ether Turbo 6-71's or 6V92's . Those would be called "Stingers" because the fifth wheel was behind the drive tires , very low to the ground. Anchor did have some 8v92's that were used for hauling doubles.

Re: GM Semis

Especially interesting to me is that "Old Bay" is an old car hauler,,,,M&G? If you want to waste some time click on one of my photos and then go to my Flickr page. Browse or click on my car haulers album and you might even see a truck you drove. Here's an early Bruin with a load out of Baltimore on a Delavan trailer.

Yup, M&G Convoy outa Westboro, MA
That Bruin looks to be a Turbo 6-71 and I think the trailer is a Delevan 3200. Fun to load with 2 sets of skinny skids. Delevan cut those trailers up to make "Quick Loaders" out of them. They were by far the easiest and fastest to load. I used to load 9 Saabs out of Davisville, RI (4 chains on each) in 45 minutes. (after the cars were pulled) I've been to Delavan in Buffalo / West Senaca many times.
Just quickly looked at your Flickr account. Going to have to find some real time to go over it. Thanks for sharing it.
I have a bunch of White/GMC Volvo pictures from doing test loads.

Re: GM Semis

Cool Old Bay. I'd like to see your Volvo photos, maybe even borrow them. The trailer above is a 2600 and many of them (and old Bankhead B6s) were cut and reconfigured to 2600 Quickloaders. A few were stretched out to 48 foot high rails also. Here's the original 2600 brochure and a Quickloader with a Brigadier tractor.

Re: GM Semis

A lot of nice pictures there.

I especially like the Red '64 C-60 and the 2 Long Nose 9500's.

The last picture is one that I've never seen before. It's been reworked some, but sure is a beauty.

Re: GM Semis

Looks like he forgot to release the gate before dumping it.

You can see the lever still closed.

I'm surprised enough gravel stayed on the gate to hold the truck up.
