That front end looks like 1:1 kitbashing.  :lol:  :D

 

Wait, izzat 4WD?  :huh:

It is- whether it is an aftermarket-produced unit or something some guy in a shed threw together isn't clear, though.

Stumbled across this little gem this morning- looks like the fate to one of the C-Series kits in my stash has been sealed...

Had to study that for a minute to see where they patched the sheetmetal from the original headlights and moved them down into the grille.

 

Should be a neat one Chuck!

The H series, made from the AMT C Series. This one is not resin.H_Series_front.jpgH_Series_tilt.jpg


I remember this truck from I think one of the SA 'special' issues a few years back. Impressive indeed.

I posted these in response to a question, but I'll toss them in here as well just to keep everything in one place.

That's a good shot of how the body support meets the body brace, and look like what's found in the AMT kit. The blue cab pic I posted above appears to have a slightly different mount, with the frame-mounted body support mounted a bit further to the rear.

Here's a nice, clear look at how the grille fits into the opening, as well as the thin body colored windshield divider which is almost completely covered by the windshield gaskets:

Now I'm wondering how the cab would look with the divider removed and the windshield gasket fudged to make it look like a one-piece windshield...hmmmm

No idea which year this cab is, but you can pick out a lot of details:

 

 

Was the small chrome piece below the door handle in the below image a hinged/rotating cover, underneath which was the lock cylinder?:

That cab is a '61 or '62 going by the door emblem design.

 

That's exactly what the teardrop-shaped thing under the door handle is- it rolls aside to uncover the lock cylinder.The C-series doors used that setup for years.

Found some clear images of the Super Duty gasoline engine, this one with the intake manifold removed: http://www.fordmods....ine-t45332.html

So I've run across an odd one. Apparently the Vancouver, WA fire department ran several Ford C super pumpers powered by a "350 horse power Detroit". The only Detroit Diesel I know of being offered in the C cab is the 8.2 liter "fuel pincher" from the 1980s and there is no way you are getting 350 hp from that for long (170-230 hp was standard for the 8.2). A CAT 3208 wouldn't provide 350hp either even assuming the author got the Detroit part wrong.

 

All I can think of is a custom job installing an 8V71, but I'm not sure how they would have fit that in there. That is a lot more engine than anything offered in the C, even bigger than the Ford Superduty big blocks. 

 

Anyone else have any ideas or know of similar high powered C cabs?

Don't know if this has been brought up before, but I stumbled across this blog covering a '90 model (last year for this cab design) and think it's worth sharing- http://www.rubberatt...00-utility.html

PG&E (Pacific Gas & Electric) in California had quite a few 4x4 C-cab utility trucks similar to that one in mountainous areas. In fact it may be an old PG&E truck as they were painted a similar blue to that on the utility body.

Question-

I've noticed a few of these trucks (like the one Aaron posted to show the AC unit) have a small rectangular badge below the side reflector/model designation badge on the door? What is that for? It sort of looks like it says "Allison" in some of the pics I've seen, which I'd guess would identify an Allison automatic trans, but I'm not sure, as I've never seen one of these in person with that smaller rectangular emblem.
