Well I went and looked and took pictures

Recommended Posts

From what I can figure looking at state stickers and calendars in the cab it’s been sitting since 94. It would make a good project just think it will be more than I want to tackle unless someone thinks I’m making a mistake not buying it. $5000 is what he wants. 79 400 big cam fuller 15 spd 4.17 rears on camel back no air ride cab. Well pictures won’t load and I can’t get on Tapatalk

I forgot to add they said it was on the cover of overdrive mag the truck is silver with black fenders and the top of the hood is black with a stand up sleeper. If anyone could tell me why I can’t get on Bmt through tapatalk it would be much appreciated.

What needs to be done to it besides airing up the front tires?  ......and why are they both flat? Just asking because $5000.00 seems ridiculously low for a classic such as this.

The truck has been sitting since 1994. Rumor is it melted a piston.

Yes, I remember this truck from a magazine cover.  I have the photo somewhere.  I think it may have been American Trucker rather than Overdrive, though.  Where is this located?  That almost looks like a KT Cummins to my untrained eye.

The truck on the Overdrive  cover was an RS700 and was prior to both the Super-Liner  and  Value-Liner. Especially  in 1970. I want to say the RS/RL 600's didn't  become Value-Liner's until the Super-Liner  was introduced in late '77 (?).  Al

if that truck is in any where near as good shape as it looks in the pics even with a bad engine  would be well worth a little serious negotiating.  the cam follower box that i can see in the pic does not look to be big enough to be a big  cam but could well be
