Nice work on the 903 Sundance, I've been enjoying series 2 on youtube of Movin' On ATM.

I note they changed the end title credits music after just a couple of episodes and the big cam makes an appearance.

Time for an update. This thread really got off the rails. Hopefully, back on subject. Visited Sundance in Riverton a couple weeks ago. Had a marvelous time with the Osbornes. Great folks, and very generous with their time. After a year of researching, hunting and acquiring, Kelly has just about everything he needs for the mechanical restoration, including torsion bars, and a great donor VT903, with build date not too far off from original. Even correct jake brake, which according to Kelly is a needle in a haystack. A few pics of the rebuild/progress.

I've recently been re watching the 1st season of Movin On. I found it interesting that the close up driving sequences with Will and Sonny show the quarter window posts are removed (windows rolled down). Maybe it was because the post would have obscured the shots of the drivers talking.

Just wondering if anyone else noticed this ? Learn something new everyday.

Ah, now I know why you sound upset.

here's your post from 2011.......

Hi guys--

I have a vested interest in the 1st truck from the hit show BJ and the Bear. I was wondering how much the tractor might have cost new back in '78?

K100----Areodyne----400 Big Cam 1-----VIT package- 13spd....

I am not sure if you need any more specifics on it. I heard new ones cost 30k but people have also said it cost 90k.

Just wondering what it cost back in the day.

mythbuster (2/28/2019)

Why don't you show me a pic of it in Australia? The truck is in the USA in Pa. Given the condition of the truck and Australia's challenging import rules concerning autos/and trucks, it is likely NEVER to see Australian soil.


But the picture I posted originally at the start of this thread (about the "Movin On" W model) was taken in Australia. I'm sorry it doesn't have the Harbour bridge in the background to prove it though. It's been here for quite a few years now and wasn't a recent import as you might be lead to believe.
