One of the nicest 4070Bs I've seen in some time :wub: ...

_4070B.jpg

I remember "back in the day" when most cabovers around here were either Transtars or Transtar IIs. B) Few cabovers of other makes were seen in this area ... and of those, most of them were of the White Freightshaker variety. Also remember a couple of Ford CL-9000s running around. KW and Pete cabovers were as scarce as hen's teeth.

Glenn, quit torturing me like this!!! I LOVE transtars!!! Ive been eyeballing that one on truckpaper for over a month now. it seems like hes had it on there for a while. I think he may be just a touch high on the price, but it is very sharp. I like the fact that it's stretched out too :D

I'd kill for a super transtar with a V-12 dribbletroit in it, but so far i havent found a single one -_-

F20, I agree that he's probably a bit high on the price. When I saw the long wheelbase, the first thing that hit me was to put a flatbed or rollback on it. First-class old-iron hauler right there! Boy, would I love to own that truck. :D

I've never seen a Super Transtar in person, but from what I've read IH only made about 60 of them ... happy hunting! ;)

they really only made that many?? i remeber a few ole boys around here used to talk about them like they were around at least.

worse case scenario if i get real hard up is buy this older KW100 cabover a few miles away with the V-12 dribble in it and transplant it :blush: Old cabovers are getting popular, but the old KW is too far gone cab wise to try and bring it around although the drivetrain is still complete. the only other negative to it was the truck has torsion rears :wacko: :wacko:

Would it fit in a regular Transtar? The cab wouldn't need to be raised to clear it?

i think the only difference was they raised it 5 inches, then put a filler panel with trim on it under the cab to hide where they raised it. i guess you could either do that, or raise the doghouse <_< i think raising the cab would be a bit easier :blush:




i can just hear it now...............................8 inch straight stacks..........................mmmmmmmm :lol:

This place is the first I have heard of a "SuperTranstar" How different was it from a 4070B?? Can anyone point out some information or sales literature??

I took my "on the road" lessons in an old 4070 with a 238 and then moved up into a 4000 with a 318 and a 5speed and 3 speed rears. Thought we had a BIG horse at the time!! Spent about 5 years running those old trucks and then moved up to a K100 with a 400 Cummins.

Sometimes I think I want to restore an old binder, Something they only built 60 of would be a great find and a cabover Transtar would bring back a lot of memories. Plan right now is to find an old West coaster and stuff an 817C into it. Some say it was never built at the factory but if its been done in a cabover emeryville it should be possible under the big hood of a coaster!!

Ed, there's not much out there that I've seen. If I'm not mistaken, the Super Transtar came out before the 4070B. Hank's Truck Pictures has a little bit of information on them.

http://www.hankstruc...gie/file005.jpg

This particular truck has only about 63k miles on it. It was built for turnpike doubles. 12V-71, 13-speed, 44,000# axle.

Here's a little bit more ... this one has some of the specs:

I'd think that the IH Archives would have a good bit of info on them ...
