Ford V8 332 Cubic Inch Gasoline (3.80 Inch Bore and 3.66 Inch Stroke)

15-Speed Twin Stick

Truck Information:
The 1957 Ford T800 was bought brand new at Walch Ford in Elkader, Iowa in 1957 by JC Costigan Construction Company. The company built bridges, golf courses and farm ponds. They also cleared trees. This truck always hauled a 1956 Cat D-6 dozer and track type cranes. After many years of work, it was retired in 1970 with 65,000 miles on it to the original owners’ farm for the purpose of moving his dozer as needed. It was then sold to one of his employees named Merlin Anderson. It was the Anderson family who took great care of and restored this vehicle. This truck is on loan from Danny, Mike, and Greg Anderson of Pine Island, MN. Top Speed: 55 MPH
