  • 1960 W500 Power Giant is home!

    Leon Bame told me about this truck in 2011. It was a rust bucket in a junk yard, but because it was rare I decided to get it.
    I got a western cab from Greg Coffin, an engine from Mike Heinke and tires from Bill Shollenberger. Ron Reichhart found some cab parts through Chewie, and with two good cabs he could make one. I dismantled the truck, had the frame, axles and wheels, etc. blasted then I painted them. Ron took care of the cab work and painting, as well as putting everything together. he did a GREAT job. His company is Indiana Truck Restoration.
