    CF Freightliner pusher truck

    From what I understand, these pushers would push anyone.

    A lot of brands of trucks had separate motors and controls for the wipers and would stop where you turned them off, but evidently these didn’t. The engine swap did required a minor modification of the dog house and a custom front cross member.
  3. These trucks were used by CF to push trucks over Donner pass in the snow. I will start with the AMT kit. It has two options; a 63” daycab or a 86” sleeper cab. My reference truck appears to have the 72” cab. So that is where I am starting. 63” cab 86” cab: New 72” cab:

    Thanks!! Charles Rowley made the Glosson decals. He is on here under the name “Chariots of Fire.”

    This one got an in-frame while in the body shop, so she’s pretty clean, shiny and new.

    Thanks Vince! I’m glad that you pointed out the wipers. Everything that I had experience with had separate wiper motors and controls. I went back and looked at my interior pictures and only one wiper knob. Needless to say, that has been fixed and now they match.

    Thanks for the help with the decals!
  9. I have been wanting to build this for a long time. I remember seeing these trucks on the road and at their shop. I back dated the cab a little. Powered by NH 230 Cummins.

    This is another one of the trucks that I remember seeing a lot of when I was a kid. This one is a single axle with a 230 Cummins.
