Every now and then I see a KW cabover on the road that's been restored, they are sharp. Sometimes I get on truck paper and look at them.

I have personally owned 2 cabovers in my career.... a 72 KW B-Model and a 82 FTL. I liked the trucks looks and reliability. Maintance was a pain cuz everything was under the truck, but the 300" wheelbase made for it not spinning out like someone else said.

I have been looking at a 77 Pete here lately, but just as a show ride.

I owned the blue FTL for a total of 24hrs. I bought it in NJ back in 2003 and the next day a guy I worked with bought it from me for a nice profit. He has since sold it and I've seen it 3 other times at shows. The rest are just pics

Default These trucks should not be allowed on the roads

You should be scared. I could show you pictures that would give you nightmares. My brother was driving a cab over truck and was killed instantly when hit head on by another truck. There’s no doubt in my mind that he would still be here today if not in that death trap!
