379 Peterbilt (Last Ride)


Recommended Posts

I built this truck in honor of my father. The roof and cab back are 3D printed, resin hood, the stacks, bumper, and corner sticks are aluminum, the chassis shortened 3/4”, and a few hand crafted parts and salvage yard parts. My dad started driving truck in the 50’s purchased his 1st truck in 65 he raced the Liberty Belle in the late 70’s into the early 80’s he retired in January 2023 at the age of 87 witch of the last 17 years he drove for Rochester Iron & Metal, he believed that if the wheels weren’t turning you weren’t making any money, you couldn’t make money letting someone else work on your truck, and a real race truck could pull a trailer, he passed away in August 2023
