1972 2 1/2 Ton Truck

Do you suffer from an irrational fear of the end of the world? Do you want the ability to bugout from your dugout in any kind of weather? Is a lifted Jeep Wrangler with 35” tires not manly enough for you? Then hold the phone, because I’ve just spotted your next ride on BangShift.

What you see here is a customized 1972 deuce and a half. It runs on 53” tires and rocks a Hercules 465 multi-fuel turbo diesel motor. What does it run for fuel? What do you have? The owner claims to have run it on used motor oil, used transmission fluid, biodiesel, used gear oil and plain old diesel. You could probably just pick stuff up off the Gulf of Mexico beaches, cram it in the tank and run with it. At 33,000 miles and 2,300 hours, this motor’s barely broken in.

The seller’s also got a custom soft top, so your Armageddon sled is perfect for all kinds of weather. You won’t see another on the road, and you’re guaranteed to scare the shit out of other motorists, pedestrians and your neighbors, which may be worth the price of admission by itself. If you want it, you’ll find it on Racing Junk for the low, low price of $11,000.
