    That's a really neat truck.

    The family hauler in my house growing up was a couple of IH Travel-Alls a '65 that was eventually replaced by a '73. Learned to drive in one, when my dad decided he'd rather that I learned to drive in an automatic rather than destroying the clutch in his Volvo.

    My father worked for a construction company. Royce, the material supply man drove one for the outfit. Besides the practical aspects of maximizing loads in a minimum package and drive train service, the iconic stubby profile of COE's continues as always in popularity.
    Anyway Royce, besides a WWII vet was very humorous. 'His' truck he didn't term COE; and made up wacky designations. Best I remember was FIFOF.
    Feet In Front Of Fan, referring to the radiator fan blades.
    I rode along on a few Saturdays, listening to more of his puns. We'd roll up to a site..."Beat you again! I got here first." Yup, true statement. Same cab, but he was well over 6 feet tall.
    Today is 'Father's Day' here in the U.S. My Dad, the 98 year old with new cars, motorhome, even a new dog will always be my most influential figure; but I'm also blessed having an army of spare dad's, like Royce.

    Whats the reason for the extra set of windows, is it simply for visibility allowing the vehicle to used in tight spaces?
