So this is still a WIP but had to show it. It is a 1965 Mack B87 with winch rack. It has an air starter and an 8v71 Detroit with a 5 speed. It has dual fuel tanks, Air Tank, Dual battery boxes and a hydraulic tank. Dual stacks, dual air cleaners and period cab lights. The trailer still needs work to make it a 60s lowboy. Loader is an late 50s Michigan. I am also working on period correct Dayton wheels. Truck also still needs fenders. "Papa Thermadyne came from the movie "Handle with care" who was a retired trucker.

Why is the "Oversize Load" sign upside down?

It was stored that way since at the time it wasn't loaded. Saw a model like that. Not sure if it's right.

OK all here is the finished B87 and a K100 Ultimate Camper with garage and boot from a train so you can go between the cab and trailer. The Bull Dozer is as close to a 1960s Allis-Chalmers as I could get without pictures (my internet went down). Redid the tires and wheels and interior on the truck. The trailer is a conglomeration of a few crappy pics I had of a 60s lowboy. Tell me how close I came on the dozer and trailer.

Vary cool stuff Terry. I like your style. And for the next trailer I like it to. Any ideas of doing a log hauler?
