Not much has changed with this truck since the photo below was taken about 1960 and this one in 1978. A couple of air masks are mounted on the trailer and a rotating warning light is mounted on the pole by the tiller seat. On the tractor a pair of lights has been added at the top of the windshield and above the bumper.
