Good to see another Cabover. You guys certainly have long wheelbases compared to Oz.

When the over all truck lenght was restricterd to 55 feet, the longer tractors seemed to ride better, when the over all lenght laws were relaxed a trucks wheelbase turned into a kind of contest, braggin rights if you will. You're likely to find some extreme examples!

I like a little longer frame than most trucks have from factory, but this one seems to be perfect for me. I dont like the extremely long frames I see sometimes. Definitely looking forward to getting her fixed up and out on the road.

I was told that its a 290 BC Cummins with only 600 miles on rebuild , 15spd  over, Eaton 3:55 rears, air ride suspension AND cab as well. It has new brake drums, chambers, shoes, new goodyear virgin tires, driveshafts, and it has factory a/c but is not operable right now. Also has air/power passenger window. Its very solid mechanically it appears. But the interior is just worn out really bad and smelly. I plan to start stripping out the carpet and panels soon. The mechanic at our shop says if it is a 290 it has had the stuff added to it. I assume for more power and things of that nature. I really haven't done anything to it or went very investigating the engine to verify what has been added to it. He kinda looked it over when we got it back to the yard.
