I've known about this truck for a little over a year, I purchased it several months ago then had to figure out a way to get it home. As of this past Saturday its finally mine grin
Figured I'd hop on it since it was a good price, surprisingly it also has a title and keys! Even though it has the usual rust, its in pretty decent condition!

It has a Ramsey winch, Hobbs bed with fifth wheel, and 29(?) foot long gin poles. The 348 ran about 3 years ago so it shouldn't be too much trouble to get going again.

We were able to get this beast up on the trailer without a tractor big_eek

So many knobs, switches, and gauges...

Here's a pic of it with the poles up

I plan on using it to haul stuff around once it becomes road worthy, might even do a diesel swap sometime in the future. As for now, it will be set aside and do some minor tinkering on it while I focus on my other current projects.

Just need to think of a name for it... headscratch headscratch


EDIT: Since Photobucket now plasters a giant watermark on the pictures, I changed out the image links to my Google album.
EDIT 2: Decided to attach a few pics.

That's a great heavy duty truck with rare Budd style wheels. The truck is similar to my 59 firetruck with the same features as yours. I would leave the 348 in the truck it will pull anything you will want. Good luck keep us posted.

I agree - the W-block is really cool and unique.

Nice find, huge air compressor too.
You will have a lot of work ahead of you but it will be the love of your labor, I'm sure.
