1963 Hayes Clipper

I’m not sure about you but most Mondays mornings I feel as old as this truck and fail to look nearly half as good. Hayes was a Canadian truck manufacturer that was primarily known for their off highway logging trucks and prime movers. Two successive corporate buy outs by Mack and PACCAR respectively brought a close to the production of new Hayes trucks in 1975. I’m not sure how many on highway trucks Hayes manufactured but I’m sure the number was low. To see one in the US much less the East Coast is nothing short of amazing.

    Beautiful truck, beautiful condition; what’s the engine? It sounds like a 8v71 Detroit
