    20" chrome bumper and some 8" stacks and you'll be ready for the truck shows.

    You can really see that it's a 2200 in that pic. I didn't know the difference until our previous discussion. I wonder why they made those?

    That White isn't sitting there anymore. The owner's son, (who runs the trucking side of the company) didn't know where it went, but he knew it would never be scrapped. I haven't seen the owner to ask, but I bet it's being restored.

    Worked a fleet that preferred the 2275 series, ABSOLUTE PITA except for shuttling trailers for repairs, short WB as a cabover so turn tight. Did not mind the 2575 series, were fairly decent trucks and cab layout even with a Cummins or Cat inline in them. Corn Queens, almost and I SAY ALMOST as homely as R190s!!!!
