38 | Overdrive | June 2019 CUSTOM RIGS Restored Pete 'cooler' than the original C.J. Donovan of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, hauls for his three-truck Donovan Transport with this 1984 Peterbilt 362 powered by a Cummins Big Cam 400. Competing in the PKY Truck Beauty Championship at this year 's Mid-America Trucking Show, the truck won First Place in the Antique Custom class. See more of the truck on the Custom Rigs playlist of Overdrive's youtube.com/OverdriveMag channel. The dash was destroyed before Donovan acquired the truck, so it was reproduced using an aluminum sheet. The comment on the back of the cab re ects all the improvements put into the truck, many of them striving to match what came from the factory. Others went a step above factory-grade, such as replacing rubber ooring with high-grade carpet and adding a Freightliner Flex Air suspension to make it what Donovan calls "a very driver-friendly vehicle." The diamond motif of the windows also shows up in a oor mat design. Donovan says the diamond choice was a throwback to old Double Eagle sleeper designs. "The truck kind of told us what it wanted," he says of the renovation. BY MAX HEINE
