The DW and I were sailing down the highway in the Coronado last week when a driver eased up beside us in a completely tricked out Pete from Fitzgerald. Without skipping a beat the DW said "Oh our next coach has to be built on one of those!" I told her that talk like that would hurt our dear Coronado's feelings.

 

It was a cool rig. Every single thing on it but the lights, glass and tires was either painted to match the body, or highly polished metal! Even the fenders were mirror polished aluminum! It must have been a full foot shorter than our Freightliner too. In spite of that show finish, it was a working tractor hauling flat bed!

 

Congratulations on finding your Pete. Best of luck with your build. Please post more photos!

Care to fill us in on what your doing to drop it 6" I know most add a car hauler front axle. Move the Pete low air brackets up on the frame. But most times your looking at 4" on all that. And if you start playing with the air valves. It will cost you more issues then its worth.

Forgot to add love the truck. That's my dream truck and the colors right also.. I did get to run one just like it in 1987. But it had a 18 double over trans. 18th was back to the dash. And you had to be doing triple digit to hit 18th. That old gal would run 123 I know for sure. Did it one trip, but never again. :blink:

For those of you in Florida hunting insurance, I talked with another member here that said to register as a private truck. Don't offer them anything more than they need to know. As far as insurance goes, give Gilbert RV Insurance, Inc a call. With the insurance in hand, the private truck registration shouldn't be a problem. Just avoid the nice tag offices and go to one where working people go. You might be pleasantly surprised.
