    Just bought this old girl and looking for info

    Thanks for the replies. The truck has the push button door handles. As for the floor in the truck it’s in pretty good shape other than where they bolt the floor to the back panel together. It is completely rusted out. Here are a few pictures of my slow process of the build. I plan on wet sanding the truck down to expose the original paint, and treat the rust with CLR, after replacing the rotted out metal with new. Also here is a picture of the motor I pulled out of a wrecked truck and rebuilt.

    Thanks guys for the replies. I will definetly keep y’all updated as the build process goes on. I plan on trying to sell the running gear (motor, trans, rearend) if there is any interest in this items. I guess the best place to put this will be on the parts forum? Thanks
  3. Hey guys, I recently purchased this R190 series truck from a junk yard. The truck use to be used as a dairy truck in Athens Louisiana. I am trying to figure out what year model the truck it and I have looked at the Wisconsin’s serial number list but with no luck. I am thinking the FD in the serial number is meaning it was made in the Fort Wayne plant. The truck is set up with a 406 to run off propane. Is this a factory option? I have read where I think they are offered from the factory to run of of LP. Model R 195 A serial # FD 34339 F W.B. 142 Any info would be greatly aprreciated. My plans are to blow the truck apart and put a modern running gear under it like a 2007 F550 4X4 with a 12v Cummins I have already rebuilt looking for a home. Thanks guys, Bubba
