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

Recommended Posts

Here is the "1500 A" brochure

Interesting info on the frame , Seems the frame is slightly thicker, larger on the longer

wheelbase model

I find it interesting they list under optional equipment a "mandatory " safety package for the cab which includes a padded dash among other things ??

On the later 1500C (above ) no such option

I'd suspect that the option went away because it became standard equipment. I don't remember the exact dates, but a number of safety things like that became requirements by 1968. If it was 'mandatory' in 66, I don't know why it wasn't made standard then.

I looked at long wheel base 1500 a little while back. It was down to just a cab and chassis and the frame sure looked pretty beefy.

Kevin that was about the time the government required seat belts padded dashes. I believe it was in 68 that you had to have a collapsible steering column and a dual reservoir brake system

Just for reference my 74 loadstar 1600 weighs 9600 lbs. It has a 16ft flatbed (grain bed or short sideboards) with a gallion twin hoist dump, 345, 5 speed trans, 2 speed rear end. I am sure the 1500 would weigh alot less than that. Thx-Ace

So, to follow up on an old thread :)

I finally got the truck moved home yesterday.  200 mile trip, and the Toyota Sequoia towed the whole run fantastic, even through 1,000 feet of elevation change (up then back down).

Time to start going through it and see what works and what doesn't.

Had a '63 BC150 with box and hoist, 6 cylinder and 17" duals. Empty weight was 6300 pounds. We hauled 200 bushels of 60 pound wheat on it.

Back in those days, if you could haul 200 bushels on a 3/4-ton pickup, you'd do it.

That's the money shot right there. High Tech meets brute force:D

Looks like your truck is a 1965 1500, the Tare - on our 1965  1500 is 3060 Kg. which is approximately 6200 lbs. In order to keep from doing an annual inspection yearly, (Canada) our gross is 4490 Kg. approximately 9000 lb. which gives us a pay load of 1-1/2 ton, ours has a 4000 lbs front axle and a 10,000 lb rear axle, which gives us gross 14000 lb.With the tare at 6200 lb. this would give ours a pay load of 7800 lbs, just under 4 ton, but there are some with a 12000 lb rear axle, which would give 1 ton more.

actually,a little math correction,3060kg is approx 6720 lbs,not 6200,and 4490 kg is approx 9878 lbs, not 9000.
