Classic 359 still hauls hay, other commodities

Jason Williams' 1983 Peterbilt 359

Jason Williams has owned this 1983 Peterbilt 359 for nine years and has touched "every nut and bolt" on the rig during his time of ownership. The only things he's left unchanged are the engine block of the 400-hp Cat 3406B, the cab and the steer axle. Williams hauls hay and "whatever I can hook to that's worthwhile," he said.

"These old trucks have character, but it takes a certain type of character to run an old truck," Williams added.
