Over the Top: 1988 Ford Cabover

Nobody really wants to go back to the smog filled skies of yesteryear...but there is just something about an aged vintage truck that just seems cool.  Back before trucks had automatic transmissions, self braking systems, automated driver logs, and diesel particulate filters...they were a smoke beltching metal beasts with a bionic heart driven by a guy named Kevin or Bud who drank cheap diner coffee as quickly as he could clog up lanes with discarded retreads...and it was glorious.  Relive your 80s trucker fantasies with this next over the top classic.  Find this 1988 Ford Cabover offered for $3000 in Concord, CA via craigslist.

From the seller:

Engine cummins 250 9 spd This tractor is in perfect running condition I am only selling because 
I need DEF compliant 

See a better car to drive when you are chasing down an older model of robot who is trying to destroy the future?

  1. I hated these Riggs when I used to travel to Texas with my RV for the winter. I could never use the RV reserved section in the rest areas along the highways because they were filled with these riggs or would arrive late at night and start up at 4:00 am beside me. The earth shatters around a starting Cummins at 4 am when sleeping in an RV. :-) I would love to drive one and tow my RV some time. I think it requires a special permit!
