    Must not be tempted.

    This is for sale very close to me for $2000. It would make one heck of a tractor hauler.


    1973 Loadstar 1600.

    Wonder if I’d need a CDL. might have to do some research.

    Max GVWR of 24,500 pounds. I’d be good without one. Would be awesome for hauling tractors to shows.

    Cosmetically it looks to be in pretty darn good shape for its age; however the mechanical components could turn that $2,000 bargain into a big money pit very quickly. Does it run?

    Want two?

    LOL, we have another one in the shed if you want two. . .

    They are good trucks. I'm not sure about the 1973 year but some only had a single brake reservoir so if you lost one brake you lost them all. The brake booster is something else to check, they seemed to be susceptible on those trucks. Other than that, those trucks were pretty bullet proof.

    If it's got a two speed rear, you'll want to make sure that shifts correctly both up and down. Check the tires and rims- some of the old style rims are fairly dangerous and many tire shops won't touch them now. If you have to buy new rims and tires, that gets pretty pricey.

    Clutch is an obvious check- they will stick if the truck has been sitting. Usually they will free up ok but if not, then it's clutch time and more . The good news is I don't think you will find many hidden flaws- they are simple, honest trucks and a good look over will spot most problems particularly if you can drive it a short distance to check brakes, clutch, shifting etc.

    A friend of mine worked delivering beauty supplies. The company bought something similar with a box on the back. He kept getting stopped for no road tax stickers. Truck didn't even have any company lettering on it. Plus he had to stop at every weigh station.

    CDL class B single vehicle 26,001#'s and above..with or with out air brake endorsement. class A combination vehicle above 26,001#'S so if you have a class B and you have a truck weight of 26k and hook a 100# trailer to it you now need a class A this is the federal requirements

    i wouldnt buy a truck like that with a gas engine. would melt your credit cost on gasoline + under powered and slow.. low gears can help but............ wouldnt be for me

    some states have different rules regarding class 3 trucks and up. you might be ok with regular licence if your not for hire.. but may get hasselled none stop by the DOT and they just love seeing old trucks like that expecially towing .

    some things ....even free is too much to pay lol but cool truck anyway

    I don't think you would need a CDL if you are under 26,000, no air brakes and personal use. I might be wrong but that's my recollection. If you tow with it, you could run over the 26,000 plus you would then have an articulated vehicle. If you are hauling smaller tractors, there wouldn't be a need to license it that high or you could keep a 25,000 lb license and pull a trailer. The truck with a flatbed should scale right at 7,500-8,250 empty depending on the bed. Even a 10,000 lb load plus a 3,000 lb trailer would still keep you legal.

    We typically licensed our similar trucks at 24,000. That engine will pull a full load but won't be a jackrabbit on starts. It usually wasn't an issue as the truck body was scaled to hold right at the limit but good wheat could easily push it up to 26,000. That extra ton sure drove different. You needed the two speed rear then and split shifting was a good thing to know. Loaded we got 6-8 mpg, empty might be over 10 but some of that was hauling out of the field at very low speeds and soft ground.
