IH 9300 Straight Truck
« on: July 02, 2008, 04:21:05 PM »
This is our 1991 9300 she has a L10 cummins with a 9spd behind it.
it started life as a Tractor pulling cylinder trailers & Helium Tube trailers.
in 1997 we got our new Peterbilts :-D so we retired our 1987 S model IH
the 9300 only had 426000 miles on it so they stretched the frame and swapped the bed off of the 1987 on to it.
about three months later the engine blew :-P A Recon motor was installed
with the mileage and year of the truck they normaly would have sold the truck but they had spent the money to stretch
and install the bed. so it is still in service they are talking about transfering it to Florida since we never use it.
It does take Forty Acres to turn this rig around :-P
