New finds

by Doug Button


Hi everyone,

Here are two trucks I picked up recently.

The 49 2R10 is from NW Colorado. This has the Champion engine with a 4 speed. It has had restoration started on it, with the interior complete except for the guages. The frame has been sand blasted and painted. The engine compartment is done as well. The remaining work is the box and body exterior.

The 63? 8E40 is from here in Minnesota. This has a 289 with a 5 speed tranny. It is really rough. I haven't decided yet if it will be a parts truck, or to try and work on it. It would be a cool transporter. I'm thinking of a roll-back with a car rack over the cab. This truck has a NoSPIN Differential by Detroit Automotive. I'd be interested in any information someone may have on that. Also, I'd like to pin down the year if someone has serial number designations; E40-5434.

Anyway, thought you'd like to see these. Click on the pictures to see more, or go to
