This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.

1959 GMC DETROIT DIESEL SHIFTING
1959 GMC CANNONBALL. DETROIT 6 CYLINDER INLINE 2 CYCLE DIESEL ENGINE. THE
TRANSMISSION IS A 10 SPEED ROADRANGER. TOP SPEED OF THE TRUCK IS 65 MPH. I
TRIED TO DO A MIX OF LOW RANGE TO HIGH RANGE AND BACK TO LOW , SOME DOUBLE
CLUTCH , SOME NO CLUTCH , JAKE SHIFTING . UPSHIFT AND DOWN SHIFT. SOME
HIGHWAY DRIVING AT 50 MPH AND AT THE END CLIMBING A GRAVEL DRIVE ON A 15 %
GRADE. THE TRUCK HAS 9000 MILES ON A FRAME OFF RESTORATION. IT IS NOT
COMMERCIAL AND DOES NOT SMOKE OR LEAK. IT JUST GOES TO SHOWS , PARADES AND
EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITS IN ITS WELL DESERVED RETIREMENT. THANKS FOR LOOKING !
THE JAKE HAS A TOGGLE SWITCH TO TURN ON AND OFF , ALSO DEPRESSING THE
CLUTCH OR STEPPING ON THE THROTTLE WILL TEMPORARILY NULLIFY IT. I FLIP
THE SWITCH AT ABOUT 43 SECONDS INTO THE VIDEO. TAKE CARE. To purchase a
custom photo of this truck go to ;
Detroit Diesel V12 going to show
1968 Kenworth K125 hauling tractors to a show. Carla also wanted to redeem
herself from taking a 20 second video, so brought the camera! Will get one
of the Emeryville loaded when we have a chance.
