Freightliner Trucks is an American truck manufacturer based in Portland Oregon and founded in 1929 as the truck-manufacturing division of Consolidated Freightways (from which it derives its name). The company was established in 1942 as Freightliner Corporation. Owned by Daimler AG since 1981, Freightliner is a part of Daimler subsidiary Daimler Trucks North America and produces a range of vans, medium-duty trucks, and heavy-duty trucks under its Freightliner Custom Chassis subsidiary, the company produces bare chassis and cutaway chassis for multiple types of vehicles.
This behemoth of a custom-built Freightliner truck is as rare as it is large. Presenting well in black over black, this is possibly the biggest truck ever offered by Historics. We are told that this impressive Freightliner is built on a twin wheel truck body and has benefitted from an expensive list of upgrades that includes £9,000 on wheels and tyres, a roll bar, custom side skirts, and a light bar. The interior includes electrically adjusted seats sourced from an M Series BMW and air suspension. Registered as a breakdown truck, this vehicle is exempt from road tax and offers a fantastic marketing opportunity or just amazing fun. Difficult to miss and offered at a fraction of the cost to build.
