If any part is not new, it's better than new.

Bought new by local contractor and when he decided to get rid of it, he donated it to his most senior driver, who has been with him since he started work. Before the hand over, the owner replaced all the brakes, new turntable and anything else which needed doing. Then Les, then new owner, virtually dismantled it and rebuilt it, back to new. He painted it in the original company colours and signwriting in honour of the original owner. Cummins power. Just waiting for the lockdown to be lifted, so Mr Cummins can come and do a tune-up on it, not that it will ever go back to work.
I might add, Les has worked for this guy since the 120 horse Pelican powered, Butter Box ACCO days. Went from Loius to IH Eagles and now in a KW. Obviously a great boss and reliable driver.

He has a T line in the shed, which got the same treatment, including a gal cab from out west. It is every bit as nice. It was restored back into the original owners colour scheme and signwriting. I'll get some shots of it when it is next out of the shed.
