Where do I start! I guess I want to stress the quality and workmanship that went into this build is amazing. No expense was spared. It is restored to a concourse level, even the chassis is detailed.
Billy Jarrett of North Carolina had the dream to build a custom truck as a tribute to American trucking. $250,000 invested, 23 years to build and only a few hundred miles since finished. He took an old 1956 Ford C800 COE (cab over engine) and created a truly 1 of a kind, functional show piece. Unfortunately Billy passed, some lucky person will be able to enjoy the "no expense spared" "no detail overlooked" results of his dream.
There is so much to talk about, so many details worth mentioning, I broke it down into categories. The closer I look, the more impressed I am and you will be too.
