Default Hmmmm

Looks like a F60S, around 1944/5 vintage.

In the "lacks detail" photo, it looks as if the frame at mid-wheelbase is significantly deeper than elsewhere. Is this a possible indicator of a dump/tipper model, or simply a post release modification to repair damage from overload/abuse?

More to the point, what's it run on, air? Conveniently missing at least one gas tank... and what the hell are those tyres? And a 'Ford 300'?

I agree with Keefy, it's an F60S. Someone should write him for more and better pics and info.

Default Ford 300CID engine....

The Ford 300CID engine that I am aware of is a 6 cylinder inline OHV that was produced for many years, at least until the mid 90s for the North American market. It gave adequate (but not sporty) performance in trucks up to 10,000 lb GVW and could be acceptable but a bit slow if suitably geared in trucks two or three times that weight. It was quite a bit longer than the flathead normally found in CMPs and most automatic transmissions are also longer than the manuals in CMPs so I think that the people doing the conversion would also have had to move the transfer case unless they mounted the engine well forward of stock location. The photo is not adequate to guess which they did, at least to my eyes.
