Still Working – Ford F750

Found on road dead. Not this old F-750. I’ve seen it around town the past day or so hauling bobcats, soil and its own butt in a brisk manor. I can’t tell you much about other than the obvious like color and general shape. Probably a gasser under the hood. At one point in time you couldn’t flip through Truck Trader without seeing hundreds of these trucks. Today, not so much.

    Every small general contractor in my area (north shore of Boston) rans Ford or Chevy gasser dumps thru the early 1980’s. Pavers, celler-hole excavators – “ubiquitous” doesn’t come close. If you couldn’t afford a diesel 10-wheeler (or didn’t really need one), Some companies kept at least 1 rebuilt engine and transmission in reserve, which was way cheaper than keeping a DD, Mack or Cummins on standby!
