I am revisiting my 60s model White 9064 again, after hitting a wall without sufficient reference photos.  I learned that the 50s models of the 9000 used the same style cab mounts, frame brackets, rad "frame" etc.  The old brochure from the 60s I was using as reference had the pictures of all of this stuff as tiny thumbnails with very blurred detail.  Fortunately, I found a 50s era brochure with the same pictures, but they're full page, so there's much more detail.  Just wondering if either of the Bertram books show any of this kind of "behind the scenes" stuff, as the better quality pictures have led me to notice that it looks like the rad "frame" looks as if it may extend to the top of the inside of the rad housing.

Just curious as to what is actually in these books other than just your vanilla "trucks at work" photos.  Planning to buy them anyway, but if they have the kinda reference pics I need it'll definitely make me buy them a lot quicker.
