A (working) Classic Kenworth Cabover Aerodyne ~ 1985 KW K100c visits a Kenworth store
During most of the 1980's Kenworth's Cabover engine K100 Aerodyne truck
was easily the Rolls Royce of American trucking. Easy to work on...
possible to get the weight down, great ride, great view, easy to manover
... then the American length laws opened up and the long and tall big ride
became possible. Meanwhile, because of all the parts and linkages that
needed to be flexible, it actually costs more to build a cabover engine.
By the early 90's few were sold that Kenworth discontinued production of
the K100 in America.
