  • 6E40-195HD 23,000GVW

    Some time ago I posted pics of my truck on the STT site. I was encouraged to post some here since there weren't "very many big truck pics" here.

    This is a 1961 with the full heavy duty package. One of the 194 exported that year.

    It has been in Canada its entire life and has been modified over the years. It received a transplant in the 1970's consisting of a 313 ci Chrysler engine and a 2 spd rear axle. The engine is now up to early 318 specs.

    It kept the 5 speed direct transmission and is in the "final fitting out" stage with some interior work left to do.

    BTW, these pictures were taken last May, we're still snowbound here.

    Thanks for looking.

    Doug

          Thanks for the comments Doug, Mark & Dylan. I bought the truck back in 1994 and its kind of been in its current state (stalled) for around 10 years. Marriage, kids and a farm will have that effect. I had plans originally to install a Jerr Dann tilt & load but I don't have the extra $20,000.00 or so these days for it. It came with an ALL WOOD flat bed when I bought it and a lot is still useable (the 4x6 oak cross pieces are shot though). Anyway, I'm planning on getting back to it again, probably putting a 16 foot flatbed on it mixing in some new hardwood with the old oak and use it to haul our hay in from the fields when its not at a show.
