2007 Freightliner M2 SportChassis

Posted by WindingRoad about 5 months, 2 weeks ago

This 2007 Freightliner M2 SportChassis is a tow vehicle equipped with a pre-DEF 7.2-liter turbodiesel inline-six, Allison 3000 6-speed automatic transmission, aluminum Western-style flatbed, single rear axle, fifth-wheel and Class V receiver hitches, air-powered cabin appointments and rear suspension, and more. The vehicle has been owned by motorsports company Chin Track Days for seven years, and they have added 150k of the 228k indicated miles. Maintenance in the past two years included new brakes and batteries in 2017, as well as an A/C overhaul and fluid service in 2018. The seller notes a GVWR of 19,500 lb. and states that this M2 can be operated on a standard driver’s license for private use. It is now offered in Georgia at no reserve with partial records, manuals, and a clean Florida title in the name of the seller’s company.

Production of the M2 began in 2002 and continues today. This example features a 4-door cab finished in black paint, which was recently machine polished along with the exterior trim. HID xenon headlights were installed with new housings and lenses in 2016, while the clearance, parking, brake, reverse, and bed lights are LEDs along with the turn signals and side step lights. Halogen driving lights are mounted in the front bumper. A scrape is noted on the left front fender, and one each of the LED reverse and brake lights require replacement.

The truck is optioned with an aluminum Western-style flatbed featuring a diamond-plate load floor and bulkhead, full-length aircraft-style anchor tracks for cargo tie-down, and polished grab rails. Weathertight aluminum belly cabinets feature insulated doors as well as LED lighting, and the bed also has a 12-volt accessory power supply. Alcoa 22.5” aluminum wheels are mounted with Michelin XZE rubber. Five tires were replaced in 2016 and are estimated at approximately 50% remaining by the seller. One inner rear tire is described as near the end of its life, and the seller will allow a $600 post-auction concession for its replacement by the new owner.

Towing equipment includes a Reese Towpower fifth-wheel hitch rated for 30k pounds, as well as a frame-mounted Class V 2.5” receiver hitch for pulling “tag-along” trailers with standard tow balls. The seller notes that the curb weight of 13,500 lb. and factory GCWR rating of 33,000 lb. make for a mathematical maximum tow capacity of 19,500 lb. An engine-driven air compressor supplies the air-ride rear suspension system, which features automatic self-leveling to compensate for tow load. An external air-hose coupler is also provided. A roof-mounted camera provides a view of the bed for hitching assistance and has provision for three additional switchable inputs.

The cabin features air-ride suspension to isolate it from the chassis and is trimmed with black leather, grey carpet and plastics, and wood-look accents. Bostrom captain’s chairs feature air-powered suspension and height adjustment, pneumatic lumbar support, heating, and fully-reclining backrests. The cabin measures 60” in height according to the seller, and also houses a power-reclining “mini-sofa” rear seat with folding armrests. The floor-mounted center console features storage compartments and cup holders as well as 12V and 110V power supplies. A ceiling console houses low-level LED lighting, a storage compartment, and a rear-facing retractable 19” monitor which does not currently receive power. Dual roof-mounted air horns are operated by a lanyard hanging from the ceiling.

Factory instruments are joined by an aftermarket manifold pressure/boost gauge on the A-pillar. Dash switches control the power windows and door locks, 2-stage engine brake, mirror heaters, air-bleed rear suspension lowering system, back-up camera, and bed lighting. The factory infotainment system includes a Pioneer touchscreen with a 10-disc CD changer, DVD player, auxiliary input, camera display, GPS navigation, and lifetime XM/Sirius subscription. A 1000-watt amplifier drives new speakers and a subwoofer under the rear seat. Additional features include remote-adjustable side mirrors, a 150-watt power inverter, and an aftermarket remote locking/alarm system. The digital odometer displays 228k miles, approximately 150k of which were added by Chin Track Days since 2011.

Power is from a pre-DEF 7.2-liter Mercedes-Benz MBE900 turbodiesel inline-six which features a 2,500 rpm redline and 30 psi of peak boost in factory spec and was rated at 330 horsepower with 900 lb-ft of torque when new. The manual for the MBE900 specifies a 500k-mile rebuild interval according to the seller. The engine is mated to an Allison 3000 6-speed automatic transmission with computerized gear selection and no-lift shifting. Twin saddle-mounted fuel tanks provide a total capacity of 100 gallons. Braking is from a standard hydraulic system with 4-wheel disc brakes and Bosch ABS. The truck does not utilize air brakes, though exhaust and compression braking systems are equipped along with an air-actuated driveshaft arrestor parking brake.
