Restored in 2017 and have been upgrading continuously ever since, I am selling my 1978 W 900A model KW standard hood tractor. I have done extensive upgrades and repairs and work on this truck, as I've run it daily since the day I put it in service in April of 2017. I do NOT cut corners on things. I have to keep things compliant and safe, and I work hard to do so.
3406B 400 HP WJAC Caterpillar 7FB, Eaton Fuller 15 speed OD, Eaton 3:90 rears. KW 8 bag suspension.
Too much to list here, but here's just a few things to mention;
Engine is undergoing an inframe overhaul currently as this ad is being posted (week of 2-23-2020). It will be a FRESH engine.
New radiator April 2019.
15 speed is also replaced within the past 4 years.
Eaton differentials replaced April 2019, approximately 54k miles on them.
Suspension totally rebuilt top to bottom.
Peterbilt-Unibilt openings in the cab and bunk.
These are again, a FEW things that have been done to this truck, it's been a labor of love and lots of money, time and effort have gone into the restoration and upkeep of this truck. I am selling it along with my other 1978 A model daycab project truck and a few other items.
No need to sell, just want to thin the existing herd. I have twice the amount of money I'm asking into this truck.
Want to keep the chain storage box and wetline. But that can be discussed.
I prefer for interested individuals who want to look at the truck before making commitments, so if you're interested let me know and we can discuss further. Truck is located in southern Vermont, about 4 hours north of NYC on the Mass. line.
It's an A MODEL KW...for those of us that understand...it's an A Model with a brand new rebuilt Cat, new rears, transmission, radiator, brakes, on and on...they're not available in this condition for this price, with all this already done, ANYWHERE. The next level from here is $100,000.00 and up. I know, I do my homework. I own plenty of iron. So if you're serious about owning a beauty of a ride for a seriously good price that will NOT need anything except your own personality, this is the one right now. I will run it until sold.
Asking $35,500.00 or BEST reasonable offer.
