OK that's sick. What's the camper set up like.
The Crackerbox was built from 1959 through 1968.
Damn---I started my Truck Driver career with Brown Transport in Augusta, Ga. My truck # was AP-1051-61, ugly brown paint, green/or orange striping, funky looking "Brownie" on the side, Single axle joy. LOL
Drove the city LTL, worked the dock, spotted trailers, and when done on Friday night cross-docking and staging up would grab a load usually going to Charlotte, Atlanta, Savannah, but the gravy was getting a load of Proctor & Gamble (usually paper towels/tampons) and taking off for Miami/West Palm Terminal. Can not tell the amount of times that I got down to the Interstate---and "those BIG TRUCKS' would tell me to get out of their way---I'd just pick the mike up and tell 'em---"Ya'll go ahead I will be there in a bit and catch you", they'd fuss and cuss, sometimes making rude remarks------but give my Crackerbox a little time---she'd catch them and I'd pass them and wave---
Boy howdy did it make some of them madder than a wet hen.
Po little old truck just took a wee bit to wind that Detroit up---and then she would run like a big dog, until you hit a hill. LOL

My uncle was a delivery driver for a Ford truck plant and occasionally made runs to town here. Once he had a Ford tractor like those tall ones remaining after dropping off the two on the back of his piggyback delivery and had to deliver that one another hundred miles or so. I got to ride with him. Sitting up that high in the cab was one thing but riding in that tall, short wheelbase bobtail was immensely disconcerting. Railroad crossings were terrifying. He said you got used to it. No, thanks.
Would that Ford have been a "Two Story Falcon"?
I knew old Buicks were big, but never thought you would need a wrecker that large to tow one.
20 miles in the passenger seat and you'd know it. 200k behind the wheel and you'd go insane.
Altitude record setting Unimogs, over 21,000 feet in Chile.
Able to move weight forward or back based on conditions.
Looks like a book sitting on a roller skate.
