Glosson C-O 4070A

Recommended Posts

This is a project that I have been wanting to do for a long time now. I want to finish this one before the pusher truck.

In around 1971, Glosson Motor Lines of Lexington NC, purchased 162 Transtars. They purchased both C-O 4070A’s and C-O F4070A’s. This one will be a C-O 4070A. They later had quite a few C-O F4070B’s as well. I remember seeing a lot about of these on the road and even knew a driver of theirs. I’m starting with the new issue of this truck. I hope that this one doesn’t stall like my last project.😀

Here is an inspiration picture.

Brian looks like a very interesting build for the International. I found this kit to go together very nicely and should keep your interest in finishing it. Are you going to go with a single axle?

Thanks Dan! Yes, this one will be single axle. Technically the kit is a C-O F4070A (F for full screw or tandem drive) C-O 4070A was a single axle. I like the bare bones business only look of the single axle cabover.

Cool project, it’s cool to see a bare bones work truck ( as much as I like rigs drooling with chrome, lol)


squirrel repellent is unheard of around here, best you can hope for is they attack your buddies bench more often than yours……..haha…..

Keeping the 8v71n or swapping it out? Either way it’ll be a good project. Looking forward to watching it come together.

Thanks Vince! I’m pretty sure that these trucks had NH 230 Cummins in them, so I am going with a Cummins.
