Ever had someone offer over the CB to buy your truck? That’s just what Tobby Donalson did in 1982 when he saw this needlenose 1959 351 Pete pulling chickens near Sneed, Ala. When the driver told Donalson it had a 290 Cummins in it, he had to have it. He put the motor in an old Kenworth he ran hard for many years. Now a retired independent, Donalson kept the tractor, transforming it into the finished custom ride pictured here, powered by a 425-hp Cat 3406B.
