It’s a Ford C Series, either a C750 or C800. Guessing circa early to mid 70s. Roadway (now the “R” in YRC) had hundreds of them in P&D service. CF, USPS, UPS, and PIE also had a fleet of them, single screw tractors and straight trucks.

They competed with the GM/GMC counterpart and basically cornered the market in medium duty trucks for decades (Sears was one example)

The heavier class 7 versions 800-900 could be seen as single axle or tandem axle fire trucks, compactors (trash collection), home heating oil delivery, railroad support vehicles..and utility companies... almost an infinite amount of jobs it performed with various truck bodies.

Here is a really good Wiki link for pics and details... Ford C-Series Trucks

Tandem:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

P&D:

Pickup & Delivery

Local drivers that stay around their area, usually within 100 mile radius of a terminal, picking up and delivering loads.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers for instance will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

I do believe it said Ford on the front, I have seen it driving around over here multiple times the past few weeks, have no idea what it hauls or anything. But I wanted to share with yall, I thought it was a super cool find!

Wow, Mr. G-Town, very impressive. You must be older than you look. I would have thought that was before your time.

The C-Series Ford was in production for over 2 decades. But... I honestly I vividly remember trucks from the 60’s (1960’s not 1860’s).

I started driving class 6-7 in 1978. Legally.
