A Peterbilt 379 is known as a semi truck that plays Optimus Prime in Transformers but the protagonist view of such semis is bound to change once you see this insane build. It’s a 1996 Peterbilt 379 rat rod built by Welderup with design and looks sure to get anyone’s pants wet seeing it rocking up in the rear view mirror.
This hauler has a well-patinaed body that’s a product of skillful airbrushing. The color scheme it wears is called toxic green and together with the worn-out look, this appears to be a monster that rose up from its deep sleep in a swamp. The tear in its nose is an awesome idea and it reveals a part of what’s going on in the engine. It has custom bumpers, grille, fenders and cab mounts, enormous smoke stacks and a cool sawblade sun visor.
The thing that propels this beast is a huge 13L turbocharged Caterpillar engine equipped with a turbo and injectors from Industrial Injection and a cone filter from K&N.
