70's Freightliner Cabover


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I have always liked the look of the old Freightliner Cabovers. We all know the issues with the AMT version of the 86" cab. As you can see from the photos, plenty of mods were made. The engine is a combination of two Detroit V8s' modified to replicate a V12. The headache rack is scratch built. There is an air ride suspension instead of the Reyco spring set up. Thanks for viewing!!!!

Harry, the little chrome deflectors are on the front of the cab kept the doors from getting caked with road BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH. By time II got in to trucking, most of the cabovers were history. Thanks to everyone for their comments!!!
