This is the first truck bought by Henry Dirksen. He owned and operated before selling it to another person that continued to lease to Dirksen. He then sold it to Dean Docter's Dad and he drove it for years before selling it to Paul Rowen, who turned it into a cattle truck and to this day its haulin' cattle. This truck has a 400 Cummins engine and a 13 speed transmission. These are from Dean Docter's collection.
