I had to turn around when I saw this truck parked at the end of a long driveway. At first I thought it was a GMC General but it turned out to be a truck that is a little more rare, a Chevy Bison. Following the strategy of badge engineering GM saw fit to provide Chevrolet with their own heavy Class 8 truck based off the General. With the exception of the bow tie on the grill I’m not sure how different the two trucks were from each other. The Bison was introduced in 1977 and had a short production run of just three years. It’s brother the General would last much longer with production ending in 1987. Cat, Cummins and Detroit Diesel power plants were available. There is a nice writeup of the Bison here at TrucksPlanet.com
As for this Bison I can only imagine what lays under the hood. The dual stacks look great and would sound even better if connected to a Detroit. The tandems out back appear to hold up some kind of material handler. This truck was located at a local scrap place so I hope this is not a recent drop off!
