One way we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of Overdrive’s Pride & Polish this year is highlighting 25 of our best custom rigs videos.

In the 24th week of the countdown — which will span 25 weeks — here’s Gary Salisbury’s 1979 Kenworth W900A.

When Salisbury bought the truck from its original owner, it had 3 million miles on it.

The paint scheme is the same as the original one. It has a Caterpillar 3406A engine with 400 horsepower. Salisbury took out the original 9-speed transmission and put in a 13-speed.

The truck won first in antique combo at the 2011 Great American Trucking Show.
