Anyone collect Antique Trucks?

Heres my 1959 Mack B61T... Found it on eBay, paid scrap price for it... Was told it did not run, sat for over 10 yrs, and if i didnt buy it it was going to the scrap yard. Well i put 2 new batteries in it, Changed the oil & filters, ran new cables to the starter, fresh diesel fuel and she popped off first turn of the motor! She runs like a champ! Should be a fun project to get back on the road.

That will be a really nice show piece when you get finished with it. I'll post a few of my old work horses when I get a chance this weekend.

That looks like a fun project that will be a beautiful truck at the end of the day.

I do know those tires and rims are getting rare 11 20 or something around there if memory serves... I just found an old set of cores about 2 years ago and had them rejuv and recapped.

Would love to see some pictures as you go.

Don't rat rod it out... there are enough old vehicles ruined by people who do that.

Do a nice restore on it, or alternately, go with the preservation route, do the mechanical work needed to make it safe to drive, but keep the rest of the history on it intact. And maybe see what you can find out about it's history.

1959? That's not old. :p My wife's father has half a dozen vehicles on his property he still uses that are at least that old.

I have a 1967 F100 Ranger and a 1968 F750. I'd like to put a 1968-70 crew cab body with 8 foot bed on the F750 and just go cruising on Friday nights.
