You clearly have never driven a long wheelbase truck or large fullsized car.. That or you have the sense of humor and worldly experience of a tea party member

Spotted this near my home. Look like it can become a great tow rig for someone.
I'm not sure what engine it have but my uneducated guess is a mechanical DT466 (injection pump looks similar to p-pump 12v cummins). This engine should be better than IDI thats common found in those vintage. There's a goose neck hitch under the tank as well.

Skip to 40 secs to see why the long wheelbase..Even though up here wheelbase is an italian thing. 1:30 ish shows the awesome turning technique.

I don't disagree, but it was interesting.
There's a reason my toter is staying stock wheelbase and I'm just adding a 3 foot tail to park my junk on the back with 12ft living space. At least then the cantilever will take weight off the front.

|Machinos||There's no way I'd drive that truck pulling any long trailer anywhere. Do people build them that way because they think it looks better or something? Could you even pull anything other than a gooseneck due to how close the box is to the hitch?|

the problem with those super raked out, single drive at the back bumper style toters other than the obvious problem that you need a parking lot the size of rhode island to back a sizeable trailer in... is that the steer axle ends up right at the load limit when your shits all packed, and adding tongue weight does NOT help the issue. if the rear axle was 4 feet forward, turning would be drastically improved, and adding tongue weight would fulcrum the load off the steer axle.
i cant think of any good reason for a 350" wheelbase. imagine how often that rig has to drive completely into the oncoming lane to make right hand turns in tight areas. how many times do you have to drag the right hand side of your trailer along a telephone pole or someones fence before you hate it?

Good looking Loadstar in the background. They were real workhorses!

So what's in it and where is it and how much???
|11-28-2013 01:36 AM|
I'm real tempted by this, real close by.
I think this thing looks pretty good, especially for the money.

Sell the 9 (yes 9) 44s and take some of the lame shit off and have a sweet truck for pretty cheap.

I can't even imagine what the turning radius would be with that thing. Looks like decent work, but it would take a serious person to buy it.

|yotee||one of the nicer topkick types. why do they always have that unfinished crappy interior look though?|
