How many of you kids remember when these were on the road?

The last fish that got away, is also the biggest fish that you ever caught.

I don't remember what they called them, but I was born before the started production on this model.  Well just a few years before.

I was born in '89 so I haven't seen one in person. Hank has some pics of those from the 70's but they seemed to be pretty rare even then. I'm not sure but did they keep the interior the same when Freightliner contnued to produce them as FLCs. As far as I know the new dash came around maybe 1980 :?

They moved the heater from between the seats to in front of the passenger on the firewall eventually - not sure when.

In 1980 the A/C & Heater were moved to the dash and the new style doors with the rounded corners also.In 1982 the new style dash was installed. Alan

Yes, I remember when these were born. I wanted to adopt one, but got a GMC instead. Saw the first one at the FL dealer in Medford, OR

My recollection was they came out in the early to mid 70's and in my opinion were sort of loosely put together like the COE's where anything that could be omitted to save weight was left out. I never drove one and until the length and weight laws changed to where tractor length was not an issue they were not common except in the west.
