    Kindof a feeler here, not sure if anyone is interested or not......

    1957 Diamond T model 532

    372 IH Inline 6 gasser.

    5 spd manual, dual PTO's.


    I had big plans, but it's since been put on the back burner, and other projects are leading me to think I'm not going to do anything with it anytime soon. Plans were to lower it, install a 5th wheel plate, update brake system, maybe a 2 speed rear diff, and a Cummins. Basically a ratrod semi project.

    The truck runs and drives great. Needs master cyl, but I may have it fixed one of these days here soon.

    It's in pretty decent shape for its age. Frame and cab are very solid, doors close like new, hoods are straight and function properly. Windshield has a crack up and down in the center but nothing to worry about fixing IMHO. Drivers door glass is cracked but still rolls up and down. 80k miles and I'd imagine its true since it never really left the farm. Cab corners are just starting to show signs, and front fenders were repaired once and cracking bondo is the result.

    It's an old truck......top speed was 58mph, and it's built like a tank, so it rides rough, tires are bald, etc. Please don't think this is a truck you can buy and drive cross country to get it home. BUT this is a nice running project that can be driven in its condition to shows, cruises, etc...

    Clean and clear open IN title.

    I also can work a package deal on a 12V Cummins donor truck. I will NOT even think of selling it without the DT so please don't ask.

    Price is $3,800......................................serious buyers can discuss price on donor Cummins truck if interested.

    Like I said it runs great. Come take it for a drive.

    This is a VERY rare truck. Do a bit of research and you'll soon find this out. Infact, even google will barely find any pictures of DT's in general, let alone a 532, let alone running and driving.

    Pic in avatar, can provide pics to serious buyers. Willing to accept trades. Plows, plow stuff, trucks, toys, whatever...........

    Here are a bunch of pics. Only ones I forgot were under the hood. Under there it's surprisingly clean, not all nasty or rusty. I have the battery cover/step for the passenger side too, its just not shown in pics.
