Default F60T info wanted

Hi guys,
does anybody have any information about the Ford Tractor different from the picture below? I am working on scale drawing and any information would be welcome, especially the fifth Wheel coupling and trailer construction.
Looking forward to your comments,
Jan Mostek.

Default This is from the F60T driver handbook

Most of the book is of course the same as other 3-ton CMP handbooks but there are a couple of unique illustrations.

Great find, Eduard!

You can see the 21 gallon fuel tanks, one of the interesting things about these vehicles.

By chance I have found another F60T pictures on Ebay, taken very probably at the same occasion.
Best regards, Jan Mostek

Eduard, Jan, thanks for posting these fascinating and rare pics of F60T's in action!

Ebay france, US helmets and Canadian trucks .....looks like french troops.

The markings on the door.....even though they are hard to see, seem to be the same as the markings on the restored F60T in france (for sale on Milweb, also see Eduards Maquettegarden link)....and belongs to the TMAPC. A french (1944/45) initiative to supply food to civilians in area's which had just been liberated.
By coincidence I was just looking at the new "Liberty roads" book by Histoire&Collections a few weeks ago and a specific picture caught my eye as it showed cab11/12 15cwt's on a field in Normandy, along with a row of Dodge D15's. If I remember correctly these trucks were also TMAPC. From what I understand the TMAPC were not allowed to use the "red ball" routes and therefor had to use small B-roads.

Here is a link with some TMAPC info: http://www.chasseurs-de-memoire.com/t18599-les-tmapc
Have a look at the comic-like shetches (attached, source chasseurs-de-memoire.com).

Hi Eduard, Phil and others,

I must say that I suspect all owners of surwiving F60T that they changed the original ball-type trailer coupling for modern fifth wheel coupling (maybe it was done due to road regulations?). I would be interested in any picture from manual or operating instruction to get the idea how the original coupling looked like.

Best regards,
Jan Mostek
