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.

So what are you planning on popping on there? Are you going to build a custom box, or put something pre-made on there?

When I bought this:



I toyed with the idea of removing the axles and putting it on a long-framed UD or NPR Cab Over. Then I talked myself out of it, thinking that truck as tow vehicle, box as garage/shop made more sense.

I'll build something similar to what's on the bus.

Up against the cab will be different as I don't have to worry about blocking the window.

Last spring, I had to remove a 16 ft box at home and then drop the chassis at the upfitters. Anyhow, what the upfitter said was the easiest was hire a rollback.

Process:

1) The box was only secured to the chassis via 4 u-bolts, so cut those
2) The rollback will back up to the rear of your chassis (tail to tail)
3) Winch the box onto the roll-back
4) We moved the box to another part of the property and set it back down on railroad ties for use as a storage shed.

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.
I'll get inside pics ASAP.
