Volvo VNL64T770 - 2000 autoshift 10 speed for Sale

This truck was a US Express truck for its first 500k miles. They do good maintenance. It went to Arrow leasing for sale after that.   An Owner-Operator in Arkansas bought it and did the necessary and likely maintenance it needed while he had it.  He had medical problems that forced him out of driving and I bought it from him in November 2004 with 562,000 miles on it. 

In 2009-2010, I designed a special transport bed for the truck to load and carry a Smart car. The intent was to make it able to load and/or unload to either side of the truck. Up to that point the few trucks that had been converted to carry Smart Cars were a single-sided load/unload design and almost all of them were designed only to winch the car up onto/off of the bed. My original design was to allow for a pretty flatbed when not carrying the Smart Car so it could be used to haul typical DIY loads on it.

I did not want any flailing alligators coming off of the tires and destroying anything above deck so I had strong steel fenders built into the bed for protection.  Also, because I usually did much of the maintenance work on the truck I wanted to be able to access everything that was below the bed without having to have a forklift or a pit to do the work so I built it with a treated wood decking that can easily be removed in areas where necessary. Steel straps old the ends of the boards down and can be easily removed by removing 3 bolts on each strap. I intended to use white oak but it was not available at the time this was built where I was located.
