Wow, even a 3408 Cat!  This one won't last long.  It is located close to me, but I've never seen it on the road.  I always liked the look of the large grill White Freightliners.  You knew that there was something potent under that cab.

Never drove a cabover. Always was told they were rough riding no matter what kind of air seat.

If there is a wreck, you are the first to know it, but I have always liked the looks of the old cabovers.

The lady truckers can admire their toenail polish by pushing their feet through the grill as they drive

Maybe that was the idea behind this one 

Or you might be able to get a look at the beaver in the rear view mirror

One I had was not to bad of course I was in my mid twenties. As  far being the first at the accident you could also get a birdseye of it.

Halliburton in Rankin, TX had one of these, and I remember thinking what an ugly truck it was, however, looking at it now, maybe it wasn't as bad as I thought at the time.

If little brian stelter, of the "most trusted name in news', was driving one, we could at least tell if he was wearing pants, or not.

Knew a guy that hitched a free ride from Vacaville Ca to San Diego Ca in the Cab of a C0470 International in 1977 powered by a twin turbo 8V 92 Detroit, His complaint the next day was the scream of the turbos could be heard over the scream of the 2 stroke, even with ear-plugs, no shortage of  power, to pull a heavy load up the grapevine  believe it was one of the first 500HP(?) trucks.   He made the trip several times, he would fly home to Vacaville on Friday and hitch a free ride on Sunday back to San Diego with a neighbor who was an owner operator. We were in the USN together and a free ride was always appreciated.

The good old days, of being a Sailor!

Good friends with the guy that owns that truck. Matter of fact I was supposed to have taken it to the Louisville truck show but couldn't make it. Former owner spent 100 grand on it then passed away.

Just had cab over cattle truck buzz by here. Dozens of trucks a day go by to the lime quarry at the end of the road but years since any of them ran a cab over. Back in the 80's nothing but cab overs.

At 150 yards and lots of trees only a guess but a truck and trailer version of cab over just headed in the back country here. By the numbers that existed out here at one time if not Freight Liner it would be a Pete, less than 10% chance of other make.

Would it be proper to call a truck and trailer double decker a Bullrack?  And the other thing to confound all of you east of the Rockies it will be made to side load.  Still find places with no room to make a yard to back a semi to the load out shoot. I suspect this truck may be affiliated with the last Basque family that has last 2 big bands of sheep as well as having expanded big into the cattle business.
