The Cabover Truck – A legend remembered


The cabover truck is a vanishing breed on America’s highway, giving way to standard tractor trailers. The cabover’s imposing shape and styling embodies the power and charm of a big truck to many drivers.

The last cabover rolled off the Peterbuilt assembly line in 2005, but the appeal of the cabover style lives on. A writer at Road King remembers how the cabover style made an impression on him as a child, leading to a career in trucking.

Cabover trucks are still rolling along on at Truck Trader Online, where many cabovers are still for sale.
