    8E934412-B64F-4833-9A73-0B394FABDA86.png My first road Truck was a 78 Ford, like in the picture, in 1992, it was a good riding Truck,especially for a Cabover. That Truck was around forever, no telling where I’d see it, for about 10 years thereafter. It was white/ with blue stripes.I loved that Truck, even if it was a Ford.

    The problem I would have with the older cab overs today was the suspension s that was available for most of them.
    Most that I drove were reyco spring, some KW's had torsion bar, and I even owned one with walking beam. not a fan of any of those and would not drive them today at all.
    I was never a ford fan, but some had the neway suspension, which was a vast improvement over even the air ride Kw's and petes, in my opinion.

    I did not realize that cabovers were functional that way.

    From now on I call it the doggy house!

Pretty much original but the engine is apart at this time 3406A DITA / 14615 / Eaton 4:11. Power steering & A/C with VIT interior. 17 gauges in the dash. Truck was originally 5 different colors, sure like to find what the original paint scheme was. Even found a cassette from the past in it lol. Take a little work but it should make a nice ride at some point....
