Selling a 1998 one owner Sterling L8500 single axle road truck with just over 288k on it. It has a Cat 3126 engine, that is stock 250 hp but can be turned to around 295 hp. Transmission is a 7 speed Eaton Fuller, serial number T14607B. Rear end is Rockwell model RS23160 with a gear ratio of 4.389. It is spring ride and fuel capacity is 70 gallons. GVW front is 12k and rear is 20K for a total GVWR of 32K. Tires are Goodyear 11R24.5 and are in good condition. There is also a data cord ready to plug in for any type of gps. Negatives are normal paint wear, minor surface rust in spots and on tire rims. This truck recently made the trip from Chicago to Indianapolis. It runs and operates as it should.
The truck came from a huge nationwide company that has over 460 service locations across the country. This particular truck is in Aurora, IL and serviced out of that location since new. These single axle units are what they call peddle route trucks which is indicated by the low mileage. They have short local routes and this one has been in a backup roll for several years now. I have sold many of these units recently and they all have been in very good condition mechanically. There are additional units available as well.
Truck will crank and run and drive as said. Delivery is available at buyers expense anywhere in US. I have a driveaway service that can give a quote. The truck will sell with NO RESERVE so please do not place any bids unless you are prepared to abide by terms of sale. We will start the truck lower than market and it will sell to highest bidder. A $500 deposit will be due within 48 hours of sale via Paypal and balance to be paid by transfer within 7 days of end of sale via transfer. Title is clear and will be forwarded once truck is picked up by buyer. Inspection is welcome during auction and I can be reached at 931-434-9503 with any questions. Feel free to call as I prefer to answer any questions or address any concerns before bids are placed than to have confusion afterwards. The truck is sitting in Indianapolis. Truck has been inspected and any issues were noted above. I have a few more pictures if interested I can email.
