Working COEs 2017
« on: December 08, 2017, 08:31:01 PM »
Shot this LWB 352 Pete at my lunchtime spot back on 10/26.





A careful and detailed analysis of the grab handle length and placement revealed this to be a '77 model (well, that and the "Class of '77 inscription ;))

Haha loved the analysis that led to the discovery of the year it was made there Paul. That's a neat catch you got there.

That IH is cool, but man, that wheelbase has got to be a serious pain sometimes. :D
Anyway, good to see an old rig earning its keep!

I'm thinking it has the stretched frame due to the owner maybe hauling stuff with big overhangs, and a cabover would actually work well in that application as it still has a better turning radius than a conventional. I'd be surprised if it is simply for looks as that would really not make much sense from a practicality standpoint. It could be an ex-moving truck that had a drom box installed at one point, but I'm thinking it's probably for outsize freight.

Thought I would round out a wheelbase trifecta with this Freightliner from Rotary Transportation of Trenton NJ, taken 11/4 at the Girard Ohio Pilot.

That's a new one on me Paul........I've never heard of that outfit or seen that truck near Trenton NJ & I'm around there quite a bit. Probably runs out west & rarely does anything local. :(

That's a hell of a wheelbase there Paul, nice catch regardless though. That and the International COE above it are pretty unique.
