Dodge CNT 900

Any one ever seen or driven a Dodge semi with a diesel engine? They were about the same size as large semi's. They were built in the 60's and early 70's.
we have one with a NHC 250 cummins diesel.

The Dodge Bighorn is a Class 8 from that era, pretty rare and valuable.

I always wanted a Dodge Bighorn ever since I found out they made one. I'd like to have a couple more Dodges. There was a grain elevator in out area and he had alot of them but now he's got mostly macks and all the Dodge's are got. What a shame.

We've got a local lumber yard(down in Amish country) that has a fleet of Dodge stuff....either swing fender or Bighorns. Most aren't used anymore and just stored in a shed out back. I think they have 6-8 Bighorns in various states of dis-array and one that the long time mechanic keeps running for old time sakes, and occasional use.

I was told a couple months ago, buy the mechanic, that the whole lot of Big's could be bought for a cool $100K. Anyone??.........Bueller? Bueller?
