No, this is not a variation of the Cheetah. One hundred and eighty degrees.

Seems the tractors are for export. This one is in Canada and the Yellow one is right hand drive.

ADM (Archer Daniels Midland Company) has a bunch of those butt ugly trucks running around hauling grain. They are all day cab semi tractors pulling triple axle hoppers.

When I worked at Winnebago, we used to build a small motorhome on a Sprinter half-chassis
When we first started building the, we used to cut them off 2' behind the cab and scrap the back half of the frame; then somebody came up with the idea of building them with two front halves, and all we had to do was cut them apart.
And yes, there were a few guys who played Tug-of-War with them
We had both Dodge and M-B chassis; and other than the emblems in the grills, about the only difference was that the Dodges were white and the M-Bs were silver

That'd be because the Dodge Sprinter is, in fact, actually a M-B Sprinter - not a Dodge at all. When Daimler owned Chryco, the M-B sprinter was sometimes badged as a Dodge, Now Fiat makes 'em as part of the deal struck when M-B decided that they wanted NOTHING further to do with Chryco and split up the partnership

The joke (during the partnership) was that a guy called and asked how you pronounce it - is it "DAYm-ler Chrysler" or "DIEm ler - Chrysler". The receptionist replied - It is "DIEmler" - the "Chrysler" is silent.

If ya wanna increase the value of a Dodge Sprinter, just switch the badges frm the Ram to the "peace symbol" - double the re-sale value!
