Video captures unmistakable sound of Detroit Diesel 6-71


The folks at Mac’s Motor City Garage website (a favorite of ours) recently featured a video by Tom Siembieda, the owner and restorer of this 1959 GMC DF 860, a.k.a. “Cannonball.” Introducing the video, they said, “Its unmistakable sound was once everywhere, in every city and along every highway in America: the rumbling roar of the Detroit Diesel 6-71 engine. We revisit that wonderful noise with a ride in a beautifully restored 1959 GMC tractor.”
