    In addition to the engine, we need the suspension.

    I believe that was an early W900.

    There was one website that I can't seem to find that had a ton of info about vintage kenworth trucks.

    Yeah it’s for sale and I’ve always liked the old trucks and the v8 Detroit’s.

    Looks like torsion bar but that's easily remedied.


    Drop a series 60 in that and you'd have something.

    No way! I found that exact kit, unopened, at a neighbour's yard sale like 15 years ago.
     
    Grubby Thanks this.
