New Zealand’s Peterbilt truck company has announced it will sell its new truck to a buyer who is looking for a paint job, but is unable to pay for the paint job.
The Peterbilt Truckmaker said on Tuesday it would sell the $4m, six-wheeler to an unnamed buyer who was seeking a “color correction” of the vehicle.
Peterbilt Truck maker Peterbilt says it has “no idea” how the buyer would pay for a new paint job on the truck, which is also fitted with new seats and a modern, rear-wheel drive engine.
“Peterbilt believes that this is the right time for this particular paint job and that it would be a good decision for the buyer,” the company said in a statement.
Peteritons truck is one of only a handful of the world’s top-selling truck makers to be painted over and painted to look different.
Peteriton says it plans to sell the truck to the buyer on a “discounted basis”.
The company says the paint work will be done on the customer’s “own terms” and it is “expected that the paintwork will be delivered within the next three weeks”.
The truck is also equipped with a new steering rack and trailer hitch.
