Dr Frankenstien's at it again, Expediter to Toter this time.
 
Here we go again.

Many have probably seen this already in my other thread but i'm going to begin as if this is the first time anything has been posted about it.

I first laid eyes on this thing last spring but the time wasn't right for a purchase then.

It is now.

Here's the details.

2000 Kenworth T-300

300 hp ISC Cummins under the hood

Eaton/Fuller super 10 transmission

33,000 lb GVW

667,000 miles

Documented major overhaul at 500,000 miles, clutch at 600,000.

Needs some work but the big stuff "should" be good to go for the amount of miles it'll see while I own it.

It's going to need a complete exaust from the engine brake back.
Rear brake job.
Shackle pins and bushings.
That's about it at this point.

One of the best parts, the purchase price.

$5,000

Thankfully the P/O removed the box before I got it , saving me quite a bit of work.

Next step was to cut enough off the frame so I could fit it into my barn.

Ahh yes, it's equipped with a condo sleeper, which includes a fold down bunk, couch under that, spot for a TV(not included) fridge and a microwave oven.
