North Carolina-based trailer manufacturer Rampant Trailers uses the 1966 Kenworth W900A in the video above to deliver trailers to their customers.
As Rampant employee Les Brown explains in the video, Bill Thornton, owner of the Wendell, N.C.-based company, bought the truck mostly as-is a year-and-a-half ago from its original owner in Oregon. In its previous life, the truck was used to haul asphalt in the Pacific Northwest.
The truck’s previous owner rebuilt the truck himself, and Thornton decided to buy it and drove it all the way back to North Carolina from Oregon. Since bringing the truck home, Thornton has polished the aluminum and added some minor details to the rig, but it is mostly the same as when he bought it.
Brown says they have no idea how many miles are on the rig, as the odometer rolls over every 100,000 miles. He notes the truck was used to work up until about five years ago.
Under the hood is a Cummins 400 Big Cam with a 15-speed transmission. The interior of the truck is still mostly original with only one or two gauges that have been swapped out over the years. The original hardwood floors are still in good shape.
Brown showed the truck at Shell Rotella SuperRigs in June, where the truck picked up a second-place finish in the Classic Division.
