So I found this storage building that has seen better days in this small town of mine (about 1500) has a butt load of cabs and rigs in various states of junk and then I go around the back where half the wall is missing and here is a 1965 REO tandem axle HD truck. Complete but in dire need of resto.. I will post a teaser and more later. If anyone needs refernce pics of details I took about 100 photos. Any idea what model this is. Has the Detroit V8 and Auto with locking diffs and electric shift. What model are all these parts. Rears are eatons on a beam type air ride. The guy told me its for sale at the right price. Registration says 97 but I still have to download the pic of that for the model. So any idea what it might be worth probably non running? Surprised to see the seat is air ride too. OK its a DL-632D.

Got more pics but all it has is a COE KW and 3 COE freight shakers and a couple late 90s Freightskaker house movers. Sorry. This was the only real find. The building was built in the last 10 years but something tore it all to hell.

Working on downloading my 100 pics off my wifes phone in individual emails, since it won't sync with a usb or bluetooth. I got about 1/2 downloaded and it is driving me fricken nuts. Oh and no memory card slot.

OK so I may have been wrong. On another forum they said it may be a 6v53 Detroit.

Nice find! Those cab overs look like they're in pretty sad shape.

Man, I want to cry! shame to see all those workhorses sitting. When I lived up there we use to go looking for that stuff. I found a pretty cool H-67 once outside Minot, and an Emeryville.

Actually, it appears to be an '80+ by the hood and grille surround I can just barely make out.

Cool stuff. B)
