Here on the east coast Hendrickson trucks were always something of a rare bird and now with the passage of time that statement has only becomes more true. Heading out to the ATHS show in Des Moines I knew that if I was going to see Hendricksons in any significant quantity it would take place in Iowa. As you can see the hawkeye state did not disappoint.
The truck above was constructed by using an International cab that contained an integral sleeper. Don’t worry, Hendricksons of this time period used the Comfo-Cab popularized by International Harvester so no historical value was lost. I’m not sure but I assume Hendricksons packed larger than average power based on the seemingly endless hood and external air cleaners. Great looking trucks indeed.
