Here is another interesting from Andy Hill's collection. This one is of a 257 that was heavily modified. The owner raised the cab/hood/grill to fit a 400 in it (I'm guessing a Cummins?) Notice the lettering on the hood "400 Huskies"

This picture too is at least 15 years old, but this one has survived. It now is painted purple and is a nice working truck. The pulp rack and third axle are gone and it has a large prentice loader mounted on the rear. Perhaps I can get a current photo.

Do you know the model of the prentice? Or, does it have its own engine?

I'm sorry RZ. I know how much You like my 400's. Good engine is all i'm sayin. Say, what ever happened to that guy who had the 400 day cab(s) with the 400's in them?

Dane, one of them was scrapped. The other was sold to a guy in Chenango Bridge, and last I heard, it wound up near Rochester.
