Did you know big rigs existed at least as far back as 1956? We proudly offer this rarely seen '56 Diamond T Model 931CN cab-over-engine rig with a cosmetic restoration. This particular model was previously owned by George Crouse, former president and board member of the American Truck Historical Society. It's a single axle model and had one of the tallest cab-over profiles in the industry, giving drivers a commanding view of the road ahead. The red paint contrasts nicely with the white trim of the grille, front bumper and wheels. The bodywork is straight and solid with a clean engine bay. It has dual fuel tanks and the following chrome parts - mirrors, grab handles, horn and single exhaust stack. In front are Goodyear tires while in back are Bridgeton truck tires, all size 11R22.5. Each one is mounted to a red wheel with white trim and chrome center caps up front. The wheels are in very good order but the tires are in good, original condition. Beneath the cab is a Cummins 743 CID, 24-valve, six-cylinder diesel engine (code NH220) - 220 horsepower and 606 lbs-feet of torque! The motor is linked to a 10-speed manual transmission. Gross vehicle weight is 30,000 pounds. The cab opens a window into the past. There's a wide center console, with just enough room behind the seats for a twin roll-away mattress, a far cry from today's sleepover cabs. The driver's seat is upholstered in a medium blue while the navigator's chair is green. The gearshift lever falls to the driver's right hand while a bank of toggle switches resides on the center console, with a full array of gauges to the left, framed by the steering wheel. The fuel, temp and amp gauges are inop. The entire cabin is vintage mid-1950s. If you're a truck collector, this model may fit nicely into your collection. If you specialize in Diamond T models, this is definitely one you do not want to pass up. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check out this classic rig!
