Fun with flathead V8s
3 CMPs, some wet grass = Sunday afternoon fun. An entertaining afternoon with three trucks, in virtually 'as found' condition by Tony. They had been sitting for many years, and with a little TLC he has brought them back to life. These are Canadian Military Pattern, known here as 'Blitz' trucks, fitted with flathead Ford V8 engines. The first, a Ford F60S, the second was a Ford No8 gun tractor and the third a Ford F60L. Restoration will come later. It took 2 days to unseize the rust filled gearbox of the gun tractor and you can hear the sound it makes. Make sure you watch to the final hard hitting scene.
