A – OK

In Kenworth, Million Mile Club, April 20221 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineMay 15, 2022

Some still say the model that bore the last incarnation of the traditional Kenworth K-model grille was the coolest. That truck was, of course, the K108, and here is a fine example of the breed in the hands of Andy Vuleta’s, Vuleta Haulage, also located in Christchurch.

Under the high-wide-and- handsome cab is a Cummins ISX 15-litre motor producing 373kW (500hp), and behind that sits a 15-speed Eaton Roadranger manual shifter – a 15, how cool is that? Out back Meritor 46-160 diffs perch on Airglide 460 8-bag air suspension. What a bulletproof truck.

Andy says that these days the Kenworth’s kept busy in and around Christchurch on container and general freight, with the occasional romp out of town just to stretch her legs.

Even with 1,700,000km travelled, it certainly looks like there are a lot more stories in her life-book yet to unfold.
