bartomos, ditto, the time will very well come along for the 3600 and larger bodies. As I for see the bigger trucks will increase in value. I would love to have a Mack semi from the late fifties to early 60's but. the time has come and past for a good deal. Doc


Currently making 1954 3100 better than new and Genetics

Doc.Hall You know here in the corn belt 6400 size trucks are waiting in the sheds because they are mostly too small. The combine holds more than those small trucks. Lot of semi's now go right in the field,

Wouldn't the Saginaw have to be adapted to the front enclosed driveshaft ?
Might be simpler to change out the whole rearend. A Dana 60 with 3:73's went into my 3600.
