1985 Superliner


Recommended Posts

All the Magnum trucks featured the V8 (400, 450 or 500 HP), black paint with Magnum graphics and red Level IV interiors and specially marked Goodyear Tires in 285/75 R24.5.  Transmission could be a 9 or 12 speed.

Neway air ride was available, daycab or sleeper, various wheelbases could be chosen, various gear ratios were available, power pass. side window and lots of upgrades and bright work were available.

 

I don't recall the story on the pictured truck at the moment.  It is either a Magnum that was repainted white or it is "just" a Superliner with Magnum stickers.  It sort of looks like it is a black interior.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.

Were the Magnums built just in '85, or were some built in '86. My friend has an '86 Superliner, red level 4 interior, E9, passenger seat is a Magnum-labeled seat. Truck has been re-painted.

All Magnum Superliners were built in 1985.

My one one buddy has one of My Cousins old Magnums that is titled as an 86. It sat on the lot for a while when it was new but it is was built in 85.

You mentioned it was an 85 but titled an 86 , I kinda remember back in the sixties unsold trucks on a dealers lot were issued new vin plates with the new year on them ,In 66/67 I worked for a company that had all REO's  like 50 of them and I was at the dealer and read about it.
