Can anyone estimate dry weight and load capacity of this truck ?

Recommended Posts

Doesn't the driver's door frame list GVW. Or line setting inside ,by luck?

Like said, no door sticker or ticket?

Can only guess, (but if nobody else chimes in) something like 8000 to 9000 empty? 16000 loaded? Just wingin it here. Some of the truck guys should know far better than I.

I'm about a 3 hour drive from where the truck is sitting, so I don't know .. but I'm guessing it wouldn't be accurate because of that dump bed that's been installed.

It does have the straight-6 engine in it, that's about all I know.

Heavy 5-bolt wheels. 1963 or 1964 1-1/2-ton 1500...

Well .. yah, it's got 5 bolt wheels, so you're saying it's a 1 1/2 ton truck ?

Could be some 1-tons with heavy 5-bolt wheels. But some 1-tons had more bolts, such as 4WDs. Maybe1-tons tended to have 16" wheels and 1-1/2-tons tended to have 20" wheels.

Judging by the wheel pattern I'd say that is a mid 1960s 1500 series truck. My 500 series is the newer 1974 version of the 1500/1510/500 series and as I recall it says 15,000 lb max on the door.

I have never had mine across the scales but I'd bet it weighs 9,000+ with the utility bed and boom, that one might be lighter with just the dump box and hoist.post-86678-0-67624800-1453276884_thumb.j

As for the wheels, IH 3/4 and 1 tons of that era had a huge 6 lug pattern 16" wheel. The 1969+ 3/4 and 1 tons had the common 8 lug pattern on 16" or 16.5" wheel. The 1500/1510/500 series had the huge 5 lug pattern and a couple choices for wheel size. Mine has 20" wheels but 17" or 17.5"(can't remember) was an option too. Yours looks like it has the smaller 17" or 17.5" wheels.

Too bad 19.5 wasn't an option. :( Would be much easier to find tires! lol

Yours is a bit older than the IH trucks I normally play with, as I am a 69-75 IH truck fan. But I think the brake system on those remained the same for a long time. Mine is a nightmare to get brake parts for. My brakes are all working good now but it took some time and way more $ than it was worth.

The 1500/1510/500 series trucks are a half breed between a Loadstar and a one ton pickup so not as much interchanges between them. Not many out there for parts so I hoard :ph34r: as much as I can when I find one.

Thanks for all the info guys, I appreciate your efforts !! :)

Guess I'm going to have to break down and make that 6 hour trip to look at the label, unless i can get somebody there to do it for me.

I'm trying to decide if it's worth bringing back here to use for some projects at the land I bought. Need some fill dirt and rock moved in, and it would be MUCH cheaper if I had my own truck to do it with.

It's a bit harder to tell gvw on the round bodies with pictures .

On trucks like Binderdans There is a difference in the front fender wheel opening The 1500 and heavier series have a bigger cutout

Front fender approx 3-4" from body line to fender lip

post-77390-0-25719600-1453301635_thumb.j

Only about 1-2" from body line to lip

My friend said these 1500 series fenders are getting very scarce ,

especially here in the Northeast

I got some new info today! A friend was kind enough to go read the label for me.

C 1500

Serial Number SB445948C 32

115 HP, 140 HP MAX

14,000 GVW

132" wheelbase

I guess the only thing unknown now is how much that sucker weighs unloaded. Need to know if I can safely trailer it behind my 2008 Sequoia (9,100 lbs towing capacity)

Gotta be all of 9000k lbs with the dump box , hoist = hydraulic cylinder / lift mechanism/ subframe/ pump and pto parts

Is the 9100 lbs the total towing capacity of your toyota ?? don't forget the trailer ??

I'm thinking closer to 7000 lbs. My friend's 1974 Loadstar with a 392 and a 15 ft flatbed with rails weighs 9000 lb. I don't think I'd trust a sequoia to tow it.

short answer? no. the sequoia without good trailer brakes and a load leveler cant do it safely...but maybe you can if youre willing to be gentle with it.

Eason you are correct , A 1200 travelall 4wd weighs 5k lbs So a 1500 2wd with dump probably right around 7k lbs

Yah 9,100 lbs total trailer and load. I figure probably 1,500 lbs for the trailer.

My sequoia has load leveling air bags in the rear, the trailer towing package (trans cooler, etc) and I can drive trailer brakes. I also have a weight distributing hitch setup. Still not convinced it's a good idea to do it, but ..... :)

7,000 is just about what I was guessing it's weight at.

Holy cow .. where in the WORLD did you pull that from ?@#$?

I'm super impressed :)

So the base truck (chassis and cab) is about 4,500 lbs .. just need to guess weight of the bed and "hoist" assembly I suppose.
