As I was walking up and down the rows of show trucks at the Mid America Truck Show this year, Bill Warner Jr's truck stopped me dead in my tracks. You see this same truck was at the first truck show I ever attended in 1986. The truck was one of the most incredible trucks I had ever seen back then and with a few tasteful additions, still is 15 years later. The 81 Pete 359 rides on a 280" wheelbase to accommodate the 84" double eagle sleeper. Power comes from a massive 3408 V8 Cat. And in true classic Large Car Style, the trans is a 6 x 4 double overdrive. The House of Kolors Brandywine candy paint is the same paint it had when I saw it back in 1986 but the murals have been redone. Bill's truck also features 8" stacks, a 20" bumper, 4 fuel tanks, 4 aluminum boxes, a nice drop visor and over 900 nut covers.

On the inside, it has custom stainless pieces on the dash, 22 gauges, 22 switches and the original interior in perfect shape. Since these photos were taken, he has added a beautiful hardwood floor to the tractor.

The awesome trailer is a 2001 stainless steel grain trailer. The trailer has 70 LED lights and 13 brake lights.

He lives in Elkins, West Virginia and hauls grain and coal throughout West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. In summary, Bill and his family have done a great job building & maintaining a fine looking truck and trailer. Please take a minute and review the attached photos and see for yourself.
