My Grandfather's nearby neighbor had one almost identical to this...
IMHO, this ^^^ is just such a proper "truck".
I have this exact old TC, they are not as heavy as a mid size TC of the mid 2000's, but back in the 60's they did have some massive TC's that were hauled on 1/2 tone trucks, and giant TT pulled by cars.
"Come on down to big Lakewood Fordland...!"
I still remember the commercials from when I was a kid.
The important part is the load capacity of the truck: my aunt's '72 F-250 had a GIANT camper on it, which I was dumb enough to volunteer to drive from Tucson to
WY, riding the bump stops all the way. Any turn was potentially very exciting.
One of the two engines is a Detroit diesel two smoke
And here's the cutest little dump truck!
In 1994, my family moved from Alabama to NC. We spent the first couple months living in a hotel. It was a work related move, and my parents wanted to get us kids to start the school year in NC, even though they didn't have a house yet. Luckily my dad's employer paid for the hotel. We had a 1986 C20 3/4 ton, blue with a silver middle panel, and red pinstripe. Something about the relocation package limited weight. But it allowed them to ship a vehicle. So they packed that Suburban full of shit the day before the shipper showed up. He was in a flatbed tow truck, and would drive it on that rig point to point. About the time he started winching the truck up, he knew he was screwed. The front wheels of his rig started bobbing immediately, eventually just lifting up in the air like your picture. He nutted up and kept going though, with the truck eventually returning all four wheels to the ground when the Suburban was fully loaded. He hit the road, and we hit the air. The next day, we linked up when he dropped off the Suburban. My dad asked how the trip was, and he said "Horrible. I knew I should have gotten a bigger truck."
All that money & nothing better to do with it than profane that poor WDX.
Staying with the 6 , extra points bonus !
In my eyes, this thing has a buttload of potential. YMMV...
