2001 Peterbilt 379 Specifications

This is a 2001 Peterbilt short nose 379 tandem axle tractor

with 755,761 miles.

No, that's not a typo.

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

brag on it, even:

755,761 (that's over three quarters of a million) miles.

Try doing that with nearly any other truck.

The engine is a Cat C-15 6NZ

that has an estimated 25,000 miles on the rebuild.

The transmission is an Eaton Fuller 13 speed

with a 3:70 rear ratio

The truck features

285/75 R24.5 tires

(about 60% in front)

on all aluminum wheels

and air ride suspension.

As you'd guess when a truck clocks this many miles,

it's been maintained well.

We've seen Petes with nearly one and a half a million miles on them,

so it's not unreasonable to think

that this truck could clock as many miles

as long as you continue to maintain it well.

Peterbilt 379 Tires and Axle Weights

This Class 8 tractor

has 38,000 pound rears

and a 12,000 pound front axle.

It has 11 24.5 tires on aluminum wheels,

measures 52" high on the 5 wheel plate,

has a 15,658 chassis weight

and a 50,000 GVWR.

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.

This is a rare opportunity

to own a truck worthy of the Peterbilt name,

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