This Kenworth Truck Barn Find looks very well preserved. Also the style looks very modern because Kenworth has a really nice design strategy. They never changed the design much, the later Kenworth models use a very similar design, Kenworth updated the trucks but never really changed the design. And why should they? It`s a classic design, timeless, it will never die! Kenworth is also a company known for a company that produced the first ever commercial truck with a straight-six engine which was used mainly for logging.
And at this Kenworth Truck Barn Find we can find a really amazingly preserved truck. We suspect this truck has been over at least one restoration. But, nevertheless, it`s 1958, so it still looks great. This truck has a Cummins NH 220 engine with a center drop manifold and also contains a Williams air exhaust brakes. We think this hasn`t been driven for a long time. And justifiably so because it has surely seen its fair share of work in its days so it`s justifiably retired. We don`t know who the owner of this truck is but it`s got to be some very cool person who keeps it for old time sake. A nostalgic memory for the times that went past.
We can`t imagine how much logging this truck must have made in its days. It surely brought logs to various mills around. Also it must`ve pulled a very heavy lowboy which carried all kinds of products to all kinds of places. A true classic truck.
When it comes to Kenworth, it`s a company that implemented various technical innovations into their models and made a mark on the trucking industry. It`s also definitely one of the companies with the richest history in this industry and that history speaks for itself.
