Topics I've Started

Early 70's Monfort Kenworth w925

14 March 2012 - 02:05 AM

I just finished this one up for a club build on another forum after about 6 months of "builder's block". Someone on there had posted a detailed article on the history of Monfort's trucks. The first batch ordered had the Cummins six and torsion bar suspensions so I didn't have to do a whole lot of modifications. I started with an original amt torsion bar kit, added some 2 hole budds from AITM and scratched a few things. The only thing left to do is the door decals but I'll wait to do them when I finish the reefer trailer.

I'm starting the trailer now, which is the old amt "Watkins" reefer and I could use some help. Does anyone have any pics of the inside of a reefer trailer showing the front wall where the refrigeration unit is mounted? I have also heard that the floor was not wood but channeled metal to help disperse the cold air around the trailer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
