The Peterbilt 379: An American Icon

When the writers of the film "Transformers"

needed the perfect truck

for the head Autobot, Optimus Prime,

they knew that not just any truck would do;

it had to be the right combination of power,

class, and badass swagger.

Even though it wasn't "canon,"

the writers' choice was a no-brainer;

Optimus Prime would be a Peterbilt 379.

Of course, the screenwriters were

only belatedly figuring out

what truck afficionados have known all along:

when you come right down to it,

there's nothing like a Pete 379 longnose.

It's the epitome of what makes the Peterbilt

one of the most popular trucks

on the road, or in truck shows.

Vehicle History

This 379 tractor is on its third owner.

The last owner purchased the truck

(with a dump trailer) in 2000

with 850 thousand miles on it,

and used it 'til he retired at age 75 a few years ago,

putting another 600 thousand miles on it in the meantime.

The truck sat unused until recently,

when its current owner purchased it

(he only needed the dump trailer)

He's selling the Pete because he has no use for it.

It's roadworthy, with good brakes and tires,

as well as a rebuilt

-- and very strong --

CAT 3406B engine.

1992 Peterbilt 379 Specifications

This is a 1992 Peterbilt 379 tandem axle tractor

with 1,450,512 miles.

No, that's not a typo.

In fact, we'll repeat it again for emphasis,

brag on it, even:

1,450,512 (that's about one and a half million) miles.

Try doing that with nearly any other truck.

It has a rebuilt, mechanically-injected

425hp Cat 3406B engine

with only 191,000 miles on the rebuild,

13-speed Eaton Fuller tranny

with a 3:70 rear ratio,

air ride,

and a spacious bunk.

There are a few minor issues

(as you'll see in the photos,

and as we'll disclose when you contact us).

The History of Peterbilt

Peterbilt founder T. A. Peterman, a logger,

found his options for getting his lumber to the mill

a tad too limited.

Having decided against floating logs downriver,

using horse teams,

or trying a steam tractor,

Peterman hit on the idea

of rebuilding surplus Army trucks.

A few years later, in 1939

– after a long and winding road

that included such innovations

as a custom-built logging body,

and an electric starter

– Peterbilt was born.

This is a rare opportunity

to own a truck worthy of the Peterbilt name,

one that would do T. A. Peterman himself proud.
