Dad doesnt remember, & theres no plates on this old Ford bobtail, you FoMoCo guys ought to "rattle" off the year this old beast was made. IF you filled it untill it ran over the top, you still wouldnt have put in 700 gals. A far cry from todays 9000+ tankers.

    ALL RIGHT!!! im going up there RIGHT NOW, in the frickin heat, makin me WALK more than 500 feet, without something to drink, there's ticks, chiggers, a dog, BUT NO, im going NOW. Ill deal with you im an hour!!!!!! (if i make it).
  41. mikielikesigns2 mikielikesigns2, 2 years ago
    AHHA! I TOLD YOU, as you can plainly see in pict.#4, it's a FORD! alright , i wont say "i told you" , because i could see how you might have been confussed, seeing how it has a chevy grill,hood & fenders. So i made a call to Joni Delorian & he straightend things right up! He told me (between sniffing & yelling "Damn thats good stuff") that when he was younger, he worked on the Ford "line". Said that they had a BIG party & invited some of the G.M. guys over. Johni said "the G.M. guys did'nt like his stuff" so they played a trick on the Ford guys & swapped front ends on a couple of the trucks. (just for spite). So, i guess you guys cant be blamed, BUT NEXT TIME, remember who the FORD expert is.
  42. Manikin Manikin, 2 years ago
    Well did I not say it was a ford line one of post !!!!!!!!!!!
  43. mikielikesigns2 mikielikesigns2, 2 years ago
    your BOTH RIGHT!! Delorian said it has a wooden frame, the latest thing in gasoline transport.
