I'd rather get a red FreightLiner, cut it up, then build a lifesize G1 Prime. All I need is land, time, money...

Yep all the things I don't have!

Wow that'd be sweet! :shock:

I wonder how much it'll go for? A brand new Peterbuilt with a CAT engine is over $250,000....

Incorrect. We just replaced twelve units with new 2008 389's and they were less than half that each.

I'm interested to see if it hits his reserve and what his reserve is set at though. The truck is a 94 with no listing of mileage. That truck could have been easily put together as it is for less than 65k.

Beautiful truck though. Prime had to be a Pete 379. The new 389's just don't have that same classic look.

Ah, I hadn't looked the listing details (not supposed to be on eBay at work) and assumed it was new. :oops:
So yeah, a used 94 would be "cheap". He could have just taken a pressure washer to the engine to clean it up. But all that paint and interior work cost him some money - I wonder how much he did himself?

LOL - I see the problem. Someday I'll learn to proof read before click submit. Supposed to be $150,000. I was still wrong with that, but not as wrong. :grin:

What engines are in the new ones you just got?

Here are some listings for those that are curious: http://ww2.trucktraderonline.com/browse ... bilt//2007
Some are a lot though (mainly the "modded" ones): http://www.truckpaper.com/listings/fors ... mdlgrp=379

I'll buy two for that price!

I need to send the seller a question though, as he or she doesnt state if it is in transformable condition, and if it comes with a working allspark and matrix of leadership.

;)


Man...i would so love to take a bog standard truck like that and customize it into Prime! It wouldnt be too hard to do either.
