On the most Wanted list

WESTERN Star Trucks Australia will bring out the truck simply known as Wanted to this year's International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show.

Wowing the massive crowds at Mid America, the vehicle is a piece of artistry that needs to be seen in the metal.

Built by a team of custom design specialists in the US for last year's Mid America truck show and using the "Old West" theme for inspiration, the intent was to produce a vehicle and play up the word "Western" in the brand's name.

Western Star Trucks is known for and prides itself on creating showpiece trucks that have visitors gazing in amazement, and Wanted is no exception.

No idea for this unit was deemed too outlandish.

The show truck is fitted with custom-designed leather saddle bags, leather-wrapped fuel tanks, shiny belt buckles and exhaust stacks shaped to look like a twin rifle pointing to the sky.

The show truck features a 22 inch-high leather-wrapped front bumper with a Western Star logo resembling a giant belt buckle, and wrapped air cleaners and exhaust stacks all with matching finish.

An immaculate custom paint job, coupled with a unique design etched into the stainless steel of the air cleaners, wheel rims, roof edge and inlaid strips on the rear guards, results in a an absolute showstopper.

The Wanted truck's interior has not been altered, with the company wanting to show off the new OEM interior, which includes all-new wood cabinets and a table, dashboard, door panels and upholstery in prairie tan colour.

Typically, Western Star's show trucks are pre-purchased by a dealer or customer, who takes possession after the truck has been on show. However, due to its popularity, Western Star is holding on to Wanted longer than usual to allow others from across the globe to witness the truck up close.

See Wanted at the International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show on March 15-17 at Melbourne Showgrounds.
