Is that a Western plow? Bought a used one here in Arizona well over fifteen years ago. Plan was to install on a 40 after I retired to use around the cabin. Been retired a number of years ago but wasn't retired in 2009 the last time having a plow would have been worth while. Debated which 40 to use as hate welding on or drilling holes in a rust free frame. Have enough parts and parts cruisers to make one to put it on and call it yard art.

It is a western. Still has the cable control system (which parts are no longer availble for.....) Fun story about this old Pig. It came with our house and I have the orginal paperwork of when it was purchased new in 1975 and started out white over red....the plow was put on about 6 months later and has been on it ever since. It started plowing in the Sierra's and now lives in the Rockies. Would love a 40 but, everything on the Eastern front is either rusted to death or costs $$$$$$$ or both. Goodluck with your projects!

My has is controlled by hydraulics with a cab mount joystick.

Does the A pillar tag say it's a 75? Vent window ended with the 73 model from what I find. Turn signal is also pre 75.
