This truck is based on a Chevy 6500 2 ton tipper truck.
Its plated as 16,000lbs or about 7.2 tons.
Its got a 261cc 6 cylinder 4 speed box and 2 speed axle ( 8 gears )
Its got 42,000 miles on the clock, never welded
Was originally Sandstone Beige or pink and the blue was painted over
that.
I am going to panel in the sides of the beds and change the angle of
the rear bed and add some unique sign writing and old sytle logos etc.
