Hayes HD Show Stopper


68 HD Shining In The Sun

This 1968 Hayes HD is not the standard pretty of a modern highway tractor, but it is jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

Masterfully restored by Tristan Jackson with over 1500 hours of labour, a close look reveals attention to detail that simply amazes.

Wiring Wizard

Tristan had the same precision wiring in his first restoration, Gord Cooper’s 1957 Kenworth, which I saw in 2003. The switch labels are all engraved into the dash and clear coated.

View From Behind The Wheel

Sitting behind the wheel gives you a great feeling. You know that this truck is definitely Heavy Duty.

Grizzly Cutouts

Details like these grizzly bear cut outs on the muffler shield, were everywhere.

This truck looked good even on a cloudy day, covered in raindrops.

In the best light…
