Im wondering if anybody has any good pictures/details/ info on the 4070B and 4300 Transtar trucks that were fitted with the CummIns KT 450 19 litre engines.....any idea if any of the “Brougham” versions had these fitted???
I understand this was an option on these trucks and I’d like to know what modifications were done to fit these engines, and approximately how many of these were built
I’ve read that the 4300 had the cab raised and hood lengthened ....any idea how much ???.......any good pictures or details please.
I have the “Fred Crismon 100th anniversary” book, and on page 497 it shows a 4300 that was the first truck to come out of the new “Pilot Centre” at Fort Wayne for special build trucks in 1977......any body have any inside information on this truck and the special build shop ????
Also , page 439 shows a “DF-8500” from San Leandro....I’d like info on these special build trucks please.
Does anyone know approximately how many 4090 super transtars are still alive????
Any ideas on what happened to the “Turbostar” turbine truck ??? ....I guess it was scrapped???
Any info on this styling exercise???
I’m in to building model trucks and would like to build some of these unusual models....they intrigue me quite a bit.
Sorry for so many questions .....there is so much to learn.😉
Thanks a lot,
