Man sakes alive that is a long trailer! I cannot tell if the sides are sheet metal or painted canvas (like on the old biplanes) did it say anything about that?


Here is a photo showing the inside of the trailer ---


Looks like aluminum, thanks for the pic. That is one cool set-up.

Sorry for the poor quality of this picture, but because this truck is so rare I thought it deserved being posted. This shot shows how the engines slid out of the front for servicing. It also shows truck # 88 of the 100 that were built.

I realize I'm late to this thread and please forgive me for my n00bness, but I had to comment on this tractor. In a word, it's beautiful. Not beautiful in an asthetic way, but in its own weird cobbled together way. Only 100 built? Can you imagine the engineering feat needed to make this rare vehicle work? Transmission linkages alone must have created headaches for the designers and it had to be a bitch to drive once things started to loosen up. Having said that, it's a shame that we'll never see this kind of creativity any more.
