    Thanks Mike yeah its a beauty really like this one thanks Mike

    I would give odds it has a Detroit diesel v8, I drove one for years, we bought it from Oak Harbor Freight Lines here in Washington, it had over 4 million miles on it, their maintenance program is so good it drove like a brand new truck, it was a joy to drive, it had the 8-71 Detroit TT(?) 375hp., 5 spd., 2 spd. Axle, single screw. And man-ual steering !!
