A friend of mine sent me a link to a Craigslist last night from Hilton Head. He asked why the hood was bulged out on the truck. I looked at the pics for a few minutes and remembered seeing a pic of a truck years ago with a similar hood and front bumper. Sure enough I went back through my files and found that I had used it as Pic of the Week 9 years ago, on 11-23-09. I found the original pic on Hanks Truck's pics and it was posted by Win Hill.

Tom, if I'm not mistaken there are other pictures of this truck while still in red primer at a truck stop. If it's the same one I'm thinking of, the hood was open on one side showing the 903 Cummins in the engine bay. Hence the need for the custom widened hood. From the size of the stacks I'd say this one is some type of V engine either Cummins or Detroit. I wonder how good it cooled with the small radiator?
