If you have already purchased the truck, I'll give you all the money in my wallet for it.

If you haven't purchased it yet, could you pm me the owner's name and #....?

The Marmon might have some cool factor but in the end that W900A will make you happier

I love to see a senior truck in that kind of condition. Would love to find another one like it. If it is as sweet as it looks, you can't go wrong if the price is decent.

Thats aftermarket or homemade upholstry....not original VIT.

Other trucks:1980 KW Ext hood, 1982 Kenworth Cabover Aerodyne (BJ and the Bear) 2000 and 2003 Kenworth W900's. 2003 Pete EXHD. All Caterpillar Power. My 2003 has an MBN I converted to 6NZ. Early 550 file, 211-3025 squirts. 800 cam. Acert twins via custom mount. ARP head bolts.

Looks good to me. Pardon my ..inquisitiveness...but what is the owner asking for it if you'll share that? You're among friends. Roger

Hey loghauler you forgot the most important part. What is under the hood a yeller feller or a cum a part? Like sledman said not the right sleeper should have a more rounded one.Over all nice looking truck.
