Great guy who goes out and uses his truck. I'll have to revisit this post when I get home and add a few pics to it. I've got some old pics of Johns truck to add as well.

Thanks Jeff but I wouldnt bother.... this board is the wrong audience for these trucks

C'mon now, don't be a sour-puss. There are those of us who love this truck and yours. Go ahead and post some more pics, Jeff. And John, post some more pics of your truck too. I've only seen pictures in your avatar and on Expedition Portal.

oilburner, how about some pics of yours? I've seen it elsewhere, but can't remember where. Love it.

These trucks also belong in this thread. Timm Cooper's Cummins 109 and the series ambulance from Florida. Wish I could find out more about the Florida truck.

Anybody know Matt Moran? He's got a sweet series too.

Id get more excited with my series trucks if they had power steering and disc brakes. Would you guys believe that I also own 3 series trucks? I got 2 series III's and a 67' series IIA with the double clutch and everything.

Yeah I know I plan on buying that for my series III. The one where I'm going to put the turret and the SBC in. After years of driving series trucks around I just got tired of the 'lack" of ammenities. But power steering, SBC and disc brakes and a WWII MG-42 turret would help me like my trucks a lot better again. Can't awit to get started.

Ha not sour just didnt think enough folks on here got excited about these hybrids like I do. Yes that is my truck. Very cool to see pictures of it that Ive never seen. And yes Neil they are better with power steering and disc brakes. easy enough to add but make a world of difference in driveability.

I'm not a fan of the exterior work and body protection, personal taste really, but I'd really like to see some close-up shots of the suspension/axles, and drivetrain swap...looks like I'm seeing coilovers w/ triple bypass dampers and D60s.

Yeah the only other shot I have is of the drivers side with the owner in it. I don't know him personally so I probably should post it up. I was told he had to lengthen the front end 6" to make room for the 5.9.

Not much enthusiasm for these custom rigs out there. They are very much a case of personal taste and it seems a few of us seem to see eye to eye on what we think is cool.

There are so many junk collectors that bitch and moan about cutting up "precious" trucks. The reality is all of these came from shit piles. The 107 has an awesome history but from what I have heard it was way far from original. Timm's old 109 S1 (which I am stoked is now on the east coast) was a pile of parts. Timm's old Orange truck (now green and sold to some guy in NJ I think) was nothing special when he got it. I don't know of anyone who has really hacked a mint truck in order to build something cool. And, even if someone did, there are thousands of these trucks out there.

The 6BT 110 may be on another type of frame, I can't tell. I know the 6BT I stuffed into mine fit really nicely, I did not have to alter any of the dimensions of the bodywork.


I ran a huge intercooler, a 4 core rad, a 200 amp alt and everything fit, but it was tight and the batteries were in the back. It is going in my new truck in exactly the same position.

My new one is a mix of the cool trucks that have inspired me. It will run an eaton/101FC combo like the S1 109 that Phoenix37 owns, be a flat-floor crew cab similar to Slade's Free Candy van, and have the 6BT out of my old rig, with twin cases and a 5 speed. I pretty much have all the parts, I just need to put it together...

In this one you can see the piece that was added between the front wing and bulkhead. Not to mention the tumor on the hood.
