Yep you can still get it in the Medium duty c6500's and up and T6500's and up. The c8500 has a 300hp version. They range from 215hp-300hp, 560lb-ft to 850lb-ft. They come with an Allison 2200-3500, or an Eaton-Fuller 5, 6, 9 or 10 speed manual (depending on which model you choose). This is the Isuzu based Duramax that is very stout.

Yes, I believe you need a CDL to drive that truck.

I wouldn't mind the C6500 with the 7.8L diesel, manual trans, and 11R22.5 tires. and the short wheel based 60" CA thats the perfect unit. . .

C65 with a 7ft bed. . .

oh here we call them Class 3's. I got that, unless of course your your talking about driving everything except motorcycles, which would then be a class 1.
That would be a nice toy/junk hauler

I like the sawed off shot gun effect. . . the heaviest truck's in the shortests wheel bases.
Like my 62' 4500 for example is more or less in C60 grade truck in a C40 package or My M275 Stude its a duece n a half but its 3feet shorter then most. . .
