2001 Volvo HDT


Recommended Posts

This truck has been pulling an RV probably longer than it was used over the road (in years that is). It's not quite at a Million miles, but getting close. 

The motor is the 465 Volvo D12. To my knowledge it's never had a major internal problem. I had to replace the ECU and the oil wicking wiring harness a couple of summers ago and the 10 Speed Auto Shift may need some attention, but currently the intermittent issue has not surfaced.

The truck was singled long before my owning. I extended the frame behind the axle and placed a 14 foot box on it to haul a Mini Cooper and then an Isuzu Vehicross. The big box was cut down to 10 foot when I purchased my Spacecraft Toyhauler and then a 7 ft. box had been on it most recently. The box has been moved to my new to me truck so you can decide if you want to go with a bed, a box or move the drive up to make it shorter. 

I believe there was never a smoker in the truck. The interior is clean for its age and a single guy owning it for the last 12 to 13 years. I have lots of photos of it's various stages. I'll post a few here, but it will be easier to give access to my Google photos with a link. I will need to organize them a bit. 

The truck is in Oskaloosa, Iowa currently and that's where a new owner will have to pick it up.  It has been registered through an LLC in Montana since very early in my ownership. The title is free and clear. I know of no accidents or damage to the truck.

I think I finally have the truck listed on Facebook. It is under a different name though. If anyone see's it and has questions, I check this forum more often than FB.

Keep an eye on the FB post, it's definitely getting attention, since we got it online.

Thank you if you were one of the helpers. Not sure why it was such a difficult thing. 

I only have one computer that has FB on it. I will check it daily, but am not constantly on the site. I check this one more.

Nice looking truck. Someone will snatch it up.

By the way you can access FB from ANY computer including a smart phone. facebook.com and login. Good luck.

It might be time to give your FB post a bump, too. That group has newest first, so you're slowly dropping down.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.

Yea, I don't want to get into that FB thing again, so it will stay on that one computer. Thanks for the comment and suggestion.

Darryl&Rita, 

Thanks for the comment and suggestion too. See above.

June 2, 2024 looks like the last comment here was from me a thanks to Darryl&Rita for getting a FBMP post back up. 

If anyone follows the "What have you done to your Truck lately" section you may have already read my post about this Truck starting first try after sitting in Iowa all winter. If you follow https://www.facebook.com/groups/163040000390459/user/100092040731174

you might have seen and heard the video of it running. 

It's time for this truck to go to a new owner. All reasonable offers will be considered. While I would not be afraid of driving it across country to a new owner, I think it's best for the new owner to have that experience. Of course if you wish to make full payment for the truck, full payment for fuel and potential lodging for the trip and a one way rental car back to where I started, I would consider that.

in case the FB link didn't work.

Apologies, Rod. I bumped it once, then lost track of it for you. I did see the latest video, but didn't put the two together. GLWS.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.

A good buy IMHO. No emissions to worry about!

I've bumped it a few times on market place and have had multiple "Is it still for sale" quick responses. I've mostly been lazy and use the quick response of "yes, are you interested", so far. I also have not given anyone my phone number but somehow I got a text from someone a week or so ago. Not sure how they got the number.

Oh, yeah. BUMP

After spending almost too much time digging, at least 1 of your FB posts is bumped up. I knew you used a different handle, but couldn't for the life of me remember it.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.
