Trucker,

those pictures are not all pictures of the '74 KW the 1st & 4th pictures are of the '73 Kenworth W-900A VIT I talked to Paul Sagehorn through an e-mail he told me that there were 4 Sonny KW's used in the TV Series total! and also if we include the Pilot Truck & the black 'n' green KW that would be 6 Kenworth's total used in the show


the 2 original trucks were '74 Kenworth W-900 VIT's so the W-900A VIT in the name of the truck needs to go and be switched with just W-900 VIT both of the '74's have been known to exist today!

the other trucks were a '75 Kenworth W-900A VIT & a '73 Kenworth W-900A VIT both have been scrapped after being destroyed after filming! the '73 cought on fire right after filming was done and was scrapped, the '75 went to cluade akins after filming then when he died in '94 his decided to auction off the truck at the end of '95 early '96 the truck was sitting in a barn when that barn collapsts and the truck was crushed & totaled then was Scrapped!


look on Paul S'. Web site he first mentions the '75 Kenworth W-900A VIT in the tab "Loactions" when he got to see the house that was in the episdoe "To be in Carolina" which he said featured the '75 Kenworth W-900A VIT

the black 'n' green KW was a '76 Kenworth W-925 & the pilot truck was a '73 Kenworth W-925

check out my link below of Paul mentioning the '75 KEnworth W-900A VIT

http://www.tvtruckin.com/id11.html


there's really 4 epsisodes that I know of that featured both of the original trucks "'74 KW's" 2 small epsiodes "Antique's" & "Games" then 2 big episodes "The Switch" that also featured a black 'n' green '76 Kenworth and "General Delievery" that also featured a Gray & white '59 GMC Cracker box

4x4 23 is correct!

Paul Sagehorn the owner of the surviving truck did mention that this truck wasn't a W-900 A VIT it was a W-900 VIT

yeah I also agree with BM & 4x4 23 the the truck was is a 1974 Kenworth W-900 VIT "both of the original trucks were like that"

however there were also a 1975 Kenworth W-900A VIT & a 1973 Kenworth W-900A VIT used in the series as well


the 1975 Kenworth W-900A VIT was used in the following episodes

#1. "Hoots"
#2. "Will the last trucker leaving Charlotte please turn out the lights"
#3. Part of "Love, Death and Laura Brown" the other truck used in that episode was a 1973 Kenworth W-900A VIT, they way to tell if it's the '75 or '73 is look at the CB Radio and antenna's the '73 has them pushed back by the wind & the '75 also had Black Mud Flaps with White "KW" Emblem's most of the time it appeared on TV

#4. "Games"
#5. "Please don't talk to the driver"
#6. "Landslide"
#7. "Life Lines"
#8. "......To be in Carolina"


and to back me up here is a link down below, of Paul Sagehorn the known owner of one of the surviving 1974 Kenworth W-900 VIT's talking about a 1975 Kenworth Being in the series

None of the Movin'On Kenworths were W900-A's. The A letter was added long after the series ended.

You learn something new every day and here is proof the 1974 Kenworth W-900 VIT wasn't a W-900 A and it needs to be removed from the title...

NOTE: the 1973 Kenworth W-900 VIT, Truck #3, was mainly used for interrior shots, for both seasons, it wasn't seen in many episodes for both seasons, it had both style breathers for the during it's fame. According to George Sack the truck was lot purchased out in Arizonia, Brand New as a 1973 model in 1974. when purchased from the lot it was identical to the 2 brand new 1974 Kenworth's, except it had the lime green stripes or arrows, NOTE: when also purchased it had the little 36" Sleeper as the walk-In 60" was only avalible in 1974, Universal Studio's had bought the truck painted the arrows and the Lime Green stripes and had ordered a brand new 60" Walk-In Sleeper for the truck, making it a modified 1973 Kenworth W-900 VIT, George told me the truck was destoryed with 7 other movie trucks in a ware house fire back in 1979, and the truck no longer exist today. everything that was needed to convert the truck into a 1974 model was except for one little detail the hood KW logo on the grill, it was still gold and chrome making it visible that it was infact a 1973 model truck, you can also tell by looking at the CB Radio antenna's sometimes they were set to face forward and sometimes they were pushed back by the wind, here are 2 picture's that are clearly visible so you can see for yourself
