Matt Robinson's 1985 Peterbilt 359


Matt Robinson bought this 1985 Peterbilt 359 for his construction and farming operations, Sweetwater Farms. The truck is powered by a Cummins 300 Big Cam with an Eaton-Fuller 9-speed. Robinson says he likes the fact that the truck is a 1985 because that's the year he was born, "and of course the 359 has always been the truck on my bucket list to own and enjoy in my day-to-day work." It started out as a project truck, but he's been getting to further along by doing small repairs along the way. He will eventually give the truck a new paint job. Robinson has done all the work himself, including frame work, installing a Jake brake and other things.
