    Anyone know the GVWR of this beast?..my NYS class D is good up to 26,000 lbs.

    Anything I should be aware of when looking at a 460 w/ roll off, how big of a $$$ pit could this thing be? Looking to be able to recover 2 cars at a time, haul a racecar or move a full-size truck when needed.

    Thanks guys.

    Depends if it's a C40, 50 or 60.

    Donno 'bout newer ones, but in the 70's, a C60 was ~24K GVWR, except for tandems (which this ain't), so I'm thinking you're okay regardless.

    I keep dreaming about getting a CDL, and a truck like this ... that's what I need, more projects =))

    heavy chevy!..

    I have a friend with a similar 1975 GMC C-6500 series ramp truck--its GVW is 32,000 lbs..but his has a diesel (a detroit I think)--there isn't much he cant carry or tow with it!...they came in several different GVW ratings..you may be able to register it for less than its rated total GVW and get away with it...:crazy:

    There will be a tag, usually on the driver door or b-pillar with the GVWR.
    I believe the single rear axle never were above 26000, so you should be good.

    Thanks for the info guys. I'm debating between a dump+10K trailer or a rolloff. Can you get a dump box for a rolloff? That way I can get my new driveway in and still have the rolloff for recovery ...all in one vehicle.

    They have..

    You can buy a "dump insert" body for pickup beds--no reason why you couldnt use a similar setup on a ramp truck..I know more than one guy who's put stake pockets on his ramp trucks bed, and made wooden sideboards to haul hay and dirt on their farms too..maybe a roll off dumpster would made a serviceable dump body??...:crazy:
