Brazilian 2 1/2 ton truck

Post by Graeffmb » Sun Apr 10, 2016 6:15 pm

This is my 1968 Ford 2 1/2 ton truck, the truck was converted to military use by ENGESA (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engesa), and is a very early model (i only know of 1 other truck with the older 4 headlight front end like mine)
ENGESA also converted Chevrolet and Mercedes-Benz models and made their own trucks, the Ford and Chevy models used tandem suspensions and the Mercedes-Benz and ENGESA models used the "boomerang" suspension (with only 1 axle for the 4 rear wheels)
The truck uses a 292 Y block v8 with a 5 speed manual gearbox and a transfer case with 9 outputs (3 for the axles and 6 for winches or other equipment), despite having only 6 wheels on the pictures it uses 10 900x20 tires.
