One of the CMP owners in Maine has been looking for photos of Ford F60S and other data so these next photos are for him. Starting with an example of one of the Ex-Swiss F60S click text to see that were imported through I believe SE Equipment in the 60s I understand that all of these were the Ford derrick with A frame lift on the rear and a center mounted winch. The data plates on the Ex-Swiss CMPs are interesting as they are in German click photo to see. A good source of information off course is Bill Gregg's books.
Several questions have been asked about the side windows on CMPs so here are a number of pictures click text to see 1 Full window side on 2 inside of window canvas close up 3 window close-up 4 window canvas hinge side on
Duncan MacIntosh - Is working on a model of HUP or HUW as used by the CBC as a mobile recording unit. The following are pictures of the interior of my HUP
1. Interior roof rear This is looking toward the left rear corner of the HUP and shows the detail of the hatch hardware. The mounted field desks are not original though they are WWII vintage. I added them for needed storage space.
2. HUP Interior light This is looking forward toward the front observers hatch. Note the padding on the ring. The earlier version was a square metal hatch with less padding. I believe that all of the CBC HUPs had the square hatch.
3. HUP inside left rear The detail of the equipment bin can be seen there were originally one over each rear wheel. Mine however was missing one when I got it.
4. Inside right rear with hatch The map case can be seen in both of these pictures on the rear door. Note the rolled up canvas above the door this along with side curtains could be used to blackout the vehicle.
5. HUP right rear wide shot inside
6. HUP Radio The radio is not correct but people get a kick out of hearing the BBC short wave broadcasts
7. HUP Inside left front Look forward toward the divider between the drivers compartment and the cabin. You can just see the snaps for a canvas divider that would have separated the two areas again most likely to black out the truck so that work could be carried out in the back while it was moving at night or parked. In the HUW this panel was extended to the roof with a solid partition I believe of steel.
8. HUP both seats front part
9. HUP inside driver side My HUP being a later truck had the mount for the spare tire on the drivers side instead of another door. I believe that all of the CBC trucks had both side doors.
10. Hatch screw hold down
11. Left rear corner of the hatch and stop block
12. Hatch hardware LARGE Note the spring attached to a short arm through the pin of the outside lever arm this helps lift the hatch clear of the roof to slide forward.
13. Hatch latch lever down
14. Hatch roller arm dimension
15. Hatch roller arm
16. Hatches top block
17. Hatch roller ball 1
18. Hatch roller ball 2 Thought is hard to see in this picture the ball has a number of flat spots showing that at different times it has not turned on the pin from the lever arm.
You will also see in all of the pictures the result of years of hard use on the roof with many dents. But being original I hate to replace the roof as this would be the only practical way of taking care of all the dents and bowing.
