truckers claimed they were biblical. The Bible speaks of screaming, wailing, and crawling in the end times

Speaking of V12 diesels, this is not a truck, http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/Ne...v12motorcycle/ but then, this is a motorcycle forum, right?

There is a razor thin line between cool and idiotic, and I'm not sure where this goes...

I like the concept, but I would have built it as a crew cab and used some tires that actually have some load capacity.

I take crew rolling chassis also since I got nice 270hp motor/trans combo from a wrecked truck with less then 20K miles on it, wheel base not important as long is 84" CA or longer.
I don't know about the older crew cabs, probably the same, but the back seat in that 2012 was Awesome! I tried it on for size, and there was about 18-20" from my knees to the back of rhe seats, and I'm 6'7". Plenty of room for the guys AND their luggage.

And +1 on the air ride.
The buggy-spring ones beat you up pretty bad on a 700-mile day. Also makes makes hitting a bunch of bumps in the middle of a 65mph curve.... exciting.

I don't think it was factory, but it was very well done. If I see it there next year I will get better pics of it.

Check out the dropped International at 0:46. I had no idea an old farm truck like that could look cool. These things all all over farm country sitting idle since the farmers moved up to larger class 8 rigs. Hummmmm

This truck is one of the cleanest all original trucks thats never been touched and is a 1 FAMILY OWNED TRUCK. It has the original 336 V8 with a 4 speed and all the 4x4 still works. Its got what they call the divorced transfercase set-up,which driveshafts seperate it from the tranny. It also has the FACTORY WINCH on the front which is what they install at the NAPCO dealer.I just put new wheel cylinders on and the brakes work fine as well as cleaned the tank,installed a factory replacement fuel pump,belt,new battery,changed the oil and put a kit in the carburetor. This truck cranks right up and runs great. The inside is still got all the original stuff in it and the paint is pretty clean. The body is in really good shape but will need some dings and small dents fixed if your gonna paint it. All the glass is good,overall this is a great survivor that has not been abused. These trucks are EXTREMELY RARE AND VERY HARD TO FIND AS WELL AS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!!! If you know your cars then you already no this. This truck was around 2,400 new and the napco conversion was almost 3k so people did not buy a lot of these because you could get 2 new ones for just 1 4x4 one.These trucks restored sell between 30and 60 k. I HAVE A CLEAR TEXAS TITLE. IF INTERESTED IM ASKING 14,500 OR A DECENT OFFER I DONT EMAIL OR TEXT PLEASE CALL ME AT 512-760-5665 THANKS JUSTIN LOCATED IN ROCKDALE WHICH IS 1 HOUR FROM AUSTIN,BRYAN,TEMPLE OR WACO
