The Scania LBS140, the first European muscle truck in the sixties. The 140 was introduced in 1968 and was powered by a 14 litre V8 rated at 350 HP. This nicely restored Scania drawbar combo is an excellent example of this first super truck.

The 2200DKD was powered by the 11.6 litre 6-inline DAF engine. This engine was based on a Leyland DP680 design. The first DAF series did use this Leyland engine. DAF started building its own engines with the smaller DD 575, DA 475 and the DF 615 blocks.
A daycabMAN F2000 Evo tractor hooked to a three axled reefer semi-trailer. The combo was owned by Goes, an old and well established Dutch haulage company. Unfortunately, the story ended badly, Goes went bankrupt a number of years ago.
