Vintage Words – Ford CL9000

I recently picked up a sales brochure for the Ford CL line of cabover trucks for eBay. I don’t know about you but I miss the days when trucks left the factory in colors other than white. Useless Fact Warning: The CL-9000 could be had with a soft fan, hard fan or Z-Stripe paint design right from the factory. The truck below is sporting a soft fan setup.

Here is the back cover of the brochure. Like Ford said, Get it together -buckle up.

I need a slightly larger scanner to grab the interior pages so check back soon. You won’t be¬†disappointed.

    Yes, many trucking companies here where I live have gone to a solid colored cab; usually white. The days of seeing multi-colored truck cabs is almost a thing of the past, usually only seen on some fancy owner/operator units; even most of those are only single colored too.

    Yes the days are gone for variety with custom costs. We’ve moved to grey uniforms, standing 6 feet apart and following in line, but not to offend anyone. The electric non- operator transport is around the corner, they have planned to do away with us as “obsolete”.
