There are some good photos of Big Red in the Life Magazine Collection. The search engine is not working as well as it normally does but this will get you started.

The tractor was destroyed (crushed) at the Louisville (KTP) plant and the trailers are also gone now. The trailers survived into the late nineties

With the latest in spoke wheels !


And tube type tires too.

The futuristic looking truck was Ford's gas turbine truck and of course the other is the H model that showed up in 1961. That is the first picture I have ever seen of it without the matching trailer. It was a concept truck that made the show circuit. There were a lot of features on that truck that showed up on the CLT series Ford trucks. Here is another picture with the trailer on it.



Look sitting behind it.
