All Wheel Drive yes, but according to the emblems it is a 5000.

Air over hydraulic brakes. I wish it was air brakes, but such is life...

It is a New Process 540 or 541 I think. I have to make room to get it in the shop out of the cold before I do too much more investigating.

Of all the years I've been around these trucks, I never ran into one that had Air over Hydraulic Brakes. I've heard of them, but never saw one. It was either Full Air or Hydraulic, but never Air over.

Maybe that's not the right way to put it. How about air assist hydraulic brakes?

If it has a Compressor, I like believe I saw, I'm pretty sure it would be "Air Over".

It does have air, and instead of a hydra-vac like most of these trucks would have had, it has an air booster under the cab.

Looking at the front axle I'm going to say its a Coleman.
