Classic rigs from 1985-1987

The American Truck Historical Society held its annual convention and truck show in a virtual format in late May.

In this video, get a view of a number of trucks from 1985-1987 that participated in the truck show portion of ATHS’ virtual event.

One truck featured in the video is a 1985 International 9370 owned by Dennis Johnson, out of Clark, South Dakota. Johnson bought the truck in 1997 at an auction and still uses it as his daily driver. He has rebuilt and replaced nearly everything on it over the last 23 years.

ATHS created 23 videos spanning 118 years of trucks, starting with a video showing trucks from 1902 to 1929 and ending with one that includes trucks from 1996 to 2020. In total, more than 1,400 trucks participated in the event.

Stay tuned to the Overdrive‘s Custom Rigs newsletter each week for a decade-by-decade look at the trucks that took part in ATHS’ virtual truck show, or check out all 23 videos on YouTube.
