Farm trucks around were that way. I will check first with you before I ever order from the dealer or anybody else. It is a tandem axle with air brakes. Like I said, long-nose C50s and C60s of that generation abounded. As late as 1979, Ford mediums were long-nose, with a hood that seemed to be adopted from the previous generation pickup. Please contact us for ordering. We are excited to offer a new, ever-expanding selection of Parts and Accessories for Classic Ford Trucks.
Conversely, never saw a long-nose 1967 or later C-series medium. And then a 1968 F700; and a 1978 F600. Today, there are thermostatically-controlled fans, engaged or disengaged with air pressure, which take the place. While the N-series is not a C. I suspect that it has been repainted in snazzy black at least once; it actually looked very fresh when I first spotted it a few years ago. There is a complete catalog of 48-96 Ford F-Series parts for you to build the truck that you want.
There are a couple of classic car shows in our area this weekend and it may have been a hauler for someone with a vehicle on display at one of them. I had never seen one before, and I needed a dump trunk for my little farm when I found this one. I need a history lesson here… In the 1960s, the snub-nose medium layout came into fashion. In those days, the late seventies, it was by far the highest truck on the market. Send us a message through the Contact link in the upper left corner of our website. They sure appear to have been fairly prevalent in their day, serving as everything from fire trucks to trash compactor trucks, with a whole lot of dump and grain trucks in between.
I'm a napa jobber and I will spread the word to as many other jobbers as I can. Now they are offering a full line again. In fact, Hino pulled their cab forward models in Canada a few years ago. Blue Oval Truck Parts is also a parts supplier. From the days Ford still made big trucks and farm tractors, all over the world. .
The cab itself is sourced from the F-series. I first saw it when I moved into the neighborhood. My guess is the Cab Forward versions were done for the same reasons that the Cab Over models were offered, to help get more load within the length restrictions, but still give some of the room of the conventional cab. Diesel N-6000 and N-7000 used a Ford-built 330 cid diesel six. The front views if this truck make me think of the pre-1975 Econoline proportions; never noticed that before. Cab forward was a natural evolution for trucks, as various applications were found to be suitable for various needs.
Anyways long story story what route did you go when switching to budd wheel So? Thanks, Ryan It was a very easy and pleasant process buying from your website. Maybe drivers were hitting their head from the rough ride when they were running empty? It was an early attempt at controlling engine temperatures more precisely than the thermostats of the time could do. In 1971, the new Louisville line, which came in both long and short nose versions, replaced it. Now we only have the Ford Transit vans and light trucks…. Which points out an interesting evolution of what trucks were called over the years. If I need something in the future I will definitely use your website again. School Me on this please I would love to get it running but I have to know what it is.
Might restore it or sell it if the price is right. Diesel models had engines from Cummins and Caterpillar on tap. I also recall the grille louvers to have often seemed to be broken with some open and some closed. I live a few blocks from there. I was always fascinated by the way they used what was apparently a pickup cab situated on a much bigger truck. It has a 250 Cummins diesel engine and a 13 spd. Grain trucks like this have gone the way of the dodo.
These days, there may be completely electric fans used. I called before I placed the online order your counter guy was very helpful!!!! Above that were a raft of even higher capacity models, which in the N-Series spanned from the N-850 through the N-110. Next up were the Heavy Duty versions. The Fords were good units, just too small. This website will provide good and up to date information on all aspects of 48-96 F-Series trucks, from restoration to modified hot rods. The heavier-duty F-Sseries trucks got the additional headroom too. Did you find this truck over in C.
The part came in very fast, good quality and I haven't had any customer complaints. The injector for my 6. In fact that build plate should say which engine is in there. The N-series had a shorter wheelbase than the F-Series, thanks to a cab mounted higher, partially above the rear of the engine compartment. In a place as congested as Vancouver, the cab forward means better visibility, maneuverability and easier parking.
Big Ford bonuses are low initial cost,low operating costs, performance,reliability and Ford service where ever you go! On the cohort is a picture of this mechanical miracle, and somewhere I have an advert telling how many thousand trucks Dagenham had to build before they did the same one twice the range is staggering. The N-series was offered in a plethora of wheelbases, from 121 inch tractors to 212 inch straight trucks. As a kid, being a son of a truck driver, I was very impressed by the first long distance truck Ford made in and for Europe: the huge cab-over-engine Ford Transcontinental. Our feature truck falls somewhere in between those two numbers, and is fitted with a modest grain box. Whether you want a hot rod 66 Ford F100 or an old school 53 Ford F-Series, we have the restoration parts that you need. For those of you who were extant in the 1960s, do these trucks still ring a bell? Lots of neat old trucks in that area of town.
