Heartland Express Kenworth T600 & 53' Wabash Trailer - By Jerry Allen

Here's another view of Jerry Allen's Heartland Express trailer and Kenworth T600 tractor. The truck tractor is a Kenworth T600 (Promotex), custom painted, with chromed front bumper (Alclad II), painted interior, new front fender posts and Kenworth mirror set (Plano), and has added extensions to sleeper fairings. The trailer is a Wabash “Duraplate” 53 foot van (A-Line) with chromed trailer doors (Alclad II), that Jerry replaced the original wheels with spoked wheels/tires (Trucks N' Stuff), added air hoses to sliding tandem, scratchbuilt mudflaps (Evergreen plastic), and a scratchbuilt spare tire rack (Evergreen plastic). Also shown in Photo Gallery 272.
