1979 W900 Ex-Hood

Here are some pics of my 1979 KW. I am 2nd owner since 1983 and have been around the truck since it was ordered new by a friend. 1.3M miles total. 500K on a new 3406B 400hp white motor from CAT installed in 1982 to replace the blown 3408. I just rebuilt the twin-countershaft 5X4 and chromed the sticks. I replaced the 240"wb alum frame rails with 252"wb steel from Kenworth. New style alum air ride stands and bags, shocks,brakes ect. All work was done about 10 years ago and I've only put on about 20K since. It has never been restored, just always well maintained.

I've thought about that, or electronic 550, or juice the B that's in it now. It still has the original V8 retarder (rebuilt) and oil cooler on it.
