East Coast Truck & Trailer Sales in Portsmouth, Va., has ordered 30 of Western Star’s new 123-inch BBC 4900 FA LowMax trucks for car hauler applications. Each truck is equipped with a Detroit Diesel engine and 48- or 62-inch sleeper.
East Coast Truck & Trailer Sales had expressed a need for a truck with a shorter hood, a low profile design, and big bore engine power.
The new 123-inch BBC LowMax package offers many of the same features as the original 132-inch BBC 4900 EX LowMax, including 22.5-inch low-profile tires, reduced rear suspension height, lower cab mounting, low-profile oil pan, and special exhaust routing packages. While shortening the hood length by approximately nine inches, Western Star continues to offer some of the most powerful engines available, including Caterpillar and the Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine.
