Here are the before photos of Felix's 1963 Ford H1000. As you can see he has started to paint some items. This photos was taken in the winter. The truck has a 220 cummins, 10 spd Roadranger and started right up after sitting for 20 years!! It was a 10 wheeler with the second axle being the "rubber band drive" with the fanbelts but the previous owner cut the axle off making it a single axle. It was originally a Allied Van Lines truck until 1970 when they traded it and a trucker bought it. Felix bought it from the trucker. Felix has the original title and all documentation including tax slips and drivers logs and all that paperwork. The Ford has 11-20 tires back and 10-20 in the front. In one of the compartments, Felix has the old-fashioned lighting kits with all the fuses and lights in it. Felix will send a photo of that soon. Felix hopes is asking people who have stories or information on the H1000 to contact him. His E-Mail address is:

With Athearn announcing the release of the Ford C-Cab cabover, I thought I'd dig up some brochure pictures to show some examples. These come from a December 1960 Clues To Successful Truck Operation magazine put out by Ford Trucks.

Thought you might like a picture of my Dad's "two story falcon". It had a 1673 B 245 Cat, 10 spd Ranger, 3.70 rear with a Neway air tag. The truck pulled for Timbersteel Buildings. out of Apopka, FL. She was good for 85 m.p.h. The picture was taken in "73", lost my Dad Feb 28th 2003, he was one of a dying breed. Keith Cantone Collection.
I own a 1974 Ford WT9000. It has a great story -believe it or not - it has "53,000" original miles! Formula 350 NTC Cummins, Spicer 10 speed, sleeper . . . I plan on restoring it to a factory Ford paint scheme and some other things - but all vintage 1974. I call it a "character" truck, as they all look the same now-a-days. Sad, but true. At any rate, I would be honored to submit a photo of it for your page. She has earned an official "antique" status and runs like a watch... Photo from the Robb Mariani Collection.
