Does anyone recall the specs on these drop frame tractors?

I recall years ago Schneider and Swift had some tractors with a drop frame and small drive tires. Does anyone know any of the specs and details for looking for one? I think they were Freightliners?

I am little bored this AM and have a business idea but am not finding any on Truck Paper, etc.

Thanks,

Georg

I remember Swift running the 19.5 inch wheels, but I didn't know they had any frame modifications. A lot of fuel tankers in CA also run the 19.5 inch wheels.

I did a search on 19.5, but I remember the tractor drives being much lower and I am sure the tires were small enough to really have to require some goofy gear ratio. I also recall the trailers were designed for the tractor design and had a complete flat floor as opposed to a step deck and the trailer could not be pulled with a standard tractor with 22.5 or 24.5.

H.O Wholding runs these.. What is the result you are looking for? Only way to search would be by tire size I guess..

I am looking to have the ability to have a van and/or flatbed trailer with a very high maximum height capacity and still be within 13' 6".
