Jerry Whittmore’s lost-and-found 1991 Peterbilt 379


This truck is a 1991 Peterbilt 379 extended hood owned by Jerry Whittmore. The truck is equipped with a 425-horsepower Cat and 15-speed. Jerry bought the truck new, then sold it, and his son Jeron recently found it more than 20 years later. The Whittmore’s completely rebuilt the truck, which had 2.5 million miles on it when they bought it back. The truck is used to occasionally haul logs or wood chips for the family’s logging business, but it will also appear at some truck shows in the future.
