I'll echo the rest of the guys, you've got a real neat truck there. A 637 's gotta be a real conversation piece, especially at the parts house!

You've given us a few pictures and details but you got me wanting more. How about the specs for the rest of the truck? You said it has a "whacky" 5 speed, which one? I see a compressor for the air brakes. With that engine and the tilt cab I wonder what kind of weight you carry on the front axle? (cuz I wonder about stuff like that, doesn't everybody?) It was a fire truck in it's past, what are the plans for it's future?

Just LOVE that engine! It idles so smooth. Single exhaust yes?
Thanks for posting the videos.

A few requests;

Can you post a photo of the emblem and does it say 637 V-8?

Would post a close-up photo of the black engine family sticker on the passenger side valve cover?

This is such a Kool Truck. Thanks again

Hey, Thanks for the you-tube videos! That truck does sound a lot like the V6 and V12; I thought that the 60 degree V8 would sound different.

By the way, nice Ford pickup in the background also!
