Wescott Fashions
In 1972, Ben Blue got the opportunity to get a job with Wescott hauling garments and carpeting all over North America with the KW he had at Gardewine and a 40 ft. dry box This is somewhere in Sask. The same truck with a 36" sleeper added and a new paint job. Ben traded the '72 KW on this new '77 KW with a 290 Cummins and 13 speed in 1977.
Things were going so good that in 1979 he added this new COE Peterbilt with a turbocharged 8V92 Detroit @ 440 hp with a 15 speed. Ben and his driver, Fred Chapman put 700,000 miles on this engine driving it like it was a Cummins. Not bad, huh? Fred also drove for me at Skookum - a top-notch driver. Here's the Pete with a new paint job and pulling a brand new '79 Fruehauf 45 ft. van. It was the first freight box with air ride in Western Canada. By 1982, somebody undercut his rates to the point of making the job pointless and Ben pulled the pin and let the other guy work for nothing. Ben went to International Transport with the cab-over.
