PIthon Power Via FCCC for Los Angeles USD
Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. is showing a propane-fueled S2G box truck, the first of 30 ordered by the Los Angles Unified School District, at Booth 929.
An order for 20 more is expected, says FCCC commercial chassis product manager Mike Stark.
The truck has an 8.0-liter “PIthon” brand engine from Powertrain Integration. Powertrain Integration was acquired last year by PSI – Power Solutions International – via a deal announced last year at ACT Expo 2015 in Dallas.
The propane-fueled S2G is available as a bobtail for propane delivery, or as a flatbed or stake truck – and of course as the box truck seen there.
“This is a factory-built truck,” says Stark. “It doesn’t have to go to a secondary source. It comes off our assembly line as a turnkey truck.”
