OK so I am in negotiations for a 1965 REO Truck (1:1) and been messing with paint jobs and this is what I came up with. It is Kandy Tangerine and Jet Black:

I started with this but it had a single rear axle:

The Air Cleaners change from truck to truc. Which one looks better 1,2 or 3?

Well, I got a thread down in the 1:1 trucks section to show what it is. I am looking around 1500-2000 not running (though shes an old diesel so I am sure with a little work she'll fire up) Its a 6v53 Detroit with an Allison 6 speed and 2 speed Eaton rear. I am partial to 2 and 3 too. Maybe 3 with the toppers from 1? Not sure if it's practical to run these type of ACs up here but I think they look cool as hell. And she will be a retired heavy hauler, so she won't see much use as a worker anymore. Plans once she is driveable is to find a 60s era 40 or 50 ton lowboy. Already found a winch for the back.

Sounds cool. I like the idea. I wish ther were some truck yards by me I like to shoot them with my cam. I have some nice pic of some old trucks . I wish I could come up with a 48 -51 ford Coe . Any thing past a 60s and there just aa rust pile here in NY. To much salt I guess.:(

I like my old trucks too. I knew where there was a 53 F600 but not sure if it is still there up Montana way.
