If Chuck Most sees that is for sale he might have a new lawn ornament!

 

I agree that would make for a nice model!

A bit too far for me to drive, and I don't have another big wrecker to tow it home with. :lol:

So, is it in Unadilla or Otego?  Both towns are on the doors.

I would like it! But, same as Chuck, a bit far coming from TX. If I ever win the lottery, you guys will see some restored pics!  :D

That's cool. I do like the Cracker-Boxes.

 

Wish I had a little more money, someplace to put it, and a CDL.

That would look cool all restored at truck shows. It would also be a nice model project. But 1:25 Crackerbox cabs are few and far between! For the engine, I guess there is a 6-71 under that cab but an 8V71 wasn't uncommon for these. It's definitely doable.
