Netherlands-based Fons van den Berkmortel’s 2000 Peterbilt 379

Berkmortel 2020 09 04 08 27

This 2000 Peterbilt 379 is used as a hobby truck in the Netherlands by owner Fons van den Berkmortel. He bought and imported the truck from Nova Scotia in 2007. The rig is powered by a 6NZ Cat C15, which was given a complete overhaul, and an 18-speed Eaton-Fuller. The exhaust, bumper and more were custom built in the Netherlands. In addition to cleaning and painting the chassis, van den Berkmortel has also polished everything on the truck from the fuel tanks to the wheels and center hubs, boxes, fenders and more.
