    I love big trucks. This one looks like it has solid sheet metal in the photo. It just needs a tiny home built on the back, and it will be ready for a road trip. LOL

      What a great project! Is this a project you have just started or still designing? Are you leaning towards original or more modern? Good luck! Robert

          I just got it home last night, it was stretched 5ft. So it has a 19 ft. Wheelbase, so it will get shorter if I can make it run.

            Can you interpret this for us? NO idea what that means.

            Looks like a '63 or '64 8E-40, pretty rare. It Should have a H.D. 289 as Standard Equipment.
            It MAY have a New Process 5 Speed Direct Trans.

                What I like is to keep as close to factory as I can. Originality is my preference. ROUGH means, cab corners,floors,sils,and windshield header is rusted. It is a 5-speed but this is my first truck so I am in the dark on something's. I believe it says E. 28 on the tag.

                  That would make it a 1 1/2 Ton, and Not a E40 2 Ton and or heavier GVW.

                      I think the 300 dollars I spent for it should give me that much fun, just learning about it.

                        That's a DEAL! And a cheap education. Hope you enjoy it.

                          Ok, the 63 has a 5 speed direct, and I was given a 5 speed OD last week so what are the pros and cons to the two transmissions. The 63 has a 2 speed axle, and I have the single speed that was with the overdrive out of a 62.

                            The Overdrive has the "Funky" Shift Pattern, has quite a bit of Noise in 4th. Gear and some in Neutral.
                            Once you get used to the awkward shift Pattern it's not TOO bad, at least all 4 of the Forward gears that you actually USE are Syncro'd.

                            The "Direct" is way more "Conventional" and WAS the Original New Process Design.

                            The amount is O.D. is very slight, not as much as a 3 Speed. The drive-ability at speed will be all about what Axle Ratio you choose.
                            The 2 speed will be Super LOW and Lower, both of your Axles will be in the 5's.

                            Do they BOTH have the Band Parking Brake or provisions for it? The one's from "T" Cabs do not.

                              Yes, they both have the band brake, the 62 diff. Has 6.20 gears and the 63 5- speed direct shows 6.48 on the tag, now is 6.48 hi or low on the 2 speed. Thank you, I am going to start with the direct 5-speed and see how it goes.
