I spotted this older IH flat top cabover at a truckstop in Kentucky yesterday. Check out the company name and logo.

What are the specifics for it, G-Town?

This was the successor to the Transtar II. The 9000 series was the last COE model produced by Navistar, production began in 1981 and ended in 1998.

Schneider and JBHunt ran thousands of these, the earlier versions with a setback front axle. The one you photographed is in great shape and is likely a late mid-late 90’s version.

See? When that SNI guy was talking about a 'short truck' that's exactly what I thought of, even posted a pic in his thread!

I'm learning from ya after all, G-Town!!

Ditto !!

Wonder if that white one at the top is for sale? Looks lonely.

Anyone care to explain the 'air cans ?!?' BETWEEN the pipes ? Quite a peculiar/busy catwalk!

Thanks! Awesome pix, Laura~

Air intakes. Can't put these on the front or side of the cab, and in the engine compartment would be too cramped and high temps.

I spotted this on in Paw Paw, Illinois at the I-39 south rest area.

Huge sleeper pulling a very specialized 43' split axle reefer , with a lift gate on it, too. A very nice looking rolling apartment.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

Very cool… early 50’s. To the right of the KW conventional is a White Mustang. Quite a spot Davy!
