Here is a pic of my 67' F-600. Just went and picked it up about a week ago! It has a whole 52,000 miles on it.

That's pretty cool! I love old trucks like that. Was it on a farm or something to have such low mileage?

Yea, its in awesome shape for its age

A little history on the truck:
My grandpa and his brother bought it new in 67' and used it pretty much only during harvest. The truck has one little dent in the hood from when a bale of hay rolled over the top. Other than that its in pretty much perfect shape. The price was right too...:cool2:

Now it just needs to be black....lol

What exactly are your plans for this?

What do you mean? I am going to use it on landscape/hardscape jobs. It has a hoist so I dont need to rent a dump trailer anymore. It has also helped out a lot with power raking and spring cleanup the last few days. 1 trip to the dump site every day instead of 4....

That's a classic! I remember riding with my dad in some trucks like that, fun times.

It looks sharp for a 41 year old truck. Must have stored it indoors when it was not used. Like the color.

What engine? I am assuming it has a 2 speed rearend.

It was always stored in the barn or shop when it wasnt being used. It hadnt been started for about a year when I went to pick it up and I choked it and turned the key and it fired right up.:) It does have the 2 speed rearend and I think the engine is a 390?..

Thanks for the comments guys!

That truck would sound killer with a Cat or Powerstroke in it!

I know of an old International with hoist and grain box like that. Its been for sale for a while. I would need to do some fixing on the box and hoist.

Its like a 1958 S-160.
