(In my best Roscoe P Coletrain voice) Good News Good News, The HT20D is Home!!!

The old man went and picked up the diesel, and with a little tinkering he got it fired up. and yes we took some pics.

The deal ended up being a whole lot sweeter than the original deal, we ended up trading an old flatbed off one of my old trucks for it!!!

We've known about this one for about 5 years but it didn't come up for sale or trade in our case til about a year ago.

That is outstanding! It looks to be in great condition. A little cosmetic attention and it will look like new. I always thought those mufflers look like they were from Starwars.

Looks great Pulltilbroke, I assume it's as rare as it sounds... why did they put tin(foil?) on the starter? Thanks for the pics!

Yes, this is one of the rarest large frames, The tin foil I'm not sure what thats for havn't dug into it deep enough to find out yet.

It does need some wiring help and some other small mechanical thing put back together but all in all its not to bad. Its also got a few fuel leaks on the return manifold and what not but that should be fairly easy to fix.

The only downfall I heard about that diesel is the parts are pretty expensive....
