Videos like this give me enormous appreciation for the men that designed and built these trucks. They roll right off the line and right into heavy road work, park them in a field where they're untouched for 10-20+ years, do a tweak here and there and Boom - fired up and ready to go back to work. Diesel trucks are amazing assets.

I was in just about every state in the country by the age of 11. I didn’t know I would miss that beautiful sound/smell or a chance to have my dad driving with in the passenger seat again. It’s a different life that you have to be brought up in to really understand. Great truck, the video just brought back some memories.

Nothing beats the feel of that ivory white wheel and hockey puck Eaton shifter. The truck I learned to drive in was a 74 359 with a straight pipe big cam Cummins 400 matched up to a 13 speed Eaton. best combo ever

I worked for Matlack from 1984-94. I remember seeing that truck every spring out in Iowa, during the spring herbicide season, All I remember is the owner was from out west someplace, nice older gentleman. Would love to have that unit. Brings back a lot of good memories!!
