This amazing Plymouth Truck was built by the Corns family. What makes this truck so special is the 757 ci (12.4 L) Jacobs R-755-A2 radial aircraft engine sitting between the front wheels.

The air-cooled engine came from a Cessna 195 and has seven cylinders and produces around 300 horsepower.

The Plymouth started as just an old truck, one that Gary picked up from a customer for a couple hundred bucks, and then sat around for almost 30 years.

The original framework was ditched in favor of a custom tube chassis, which extended the front end of the truck to make room for the radial engine.

The truck also features riveted sheet metal, a pair of steering wheels for both pilot and co-pilot or in this case, for the driver and co-driver, along with the gauge cluster.
