Lang would know the full story.

You will probably find more about Kenworths on the forum than any other truck. Many of the members have a lifetime driving and collecting them.

I don't know much, just like finding stuff on the internet and hope some of it rubs off. Of course this perpetuates errors but if you say it often enough it must be true.

hi diesel fan ,i owned this van for about 5 years and loved to drive it ,it took me and my caravan and family all over the UK and Scotland and unfortunately some one ran into the side of it and wrote it off, so insurance took it away and scrapped it .it would have run for another 20 years or so it for the condition it was in ,
but when the insurance came i bought a sprinter 208cdi ,love it but not a patch on the old 410

The truck on the left looking at it is what I call a W model, the two on the right are what I call a S model

Open to correction
