1959 Kenworth 2 stick shifting practice

When filmed this was the 3rd time driving my 1959 CC 925 Kenworth truck. Has a 4 speed main and 3 speed auxilliary transmission and 4.10 gearing. Engine is an NHCT 270 Cummins. Out for a short drive and to practice shifting. Gotta learn by doing. By the time it got restored I could get anywhere I needed to go without a lot of drama. Truck has since gone through a significant restoration. See more recent videos to see some of the changes. And yes I know I sucked in this video but like I said – only the 3rd time I had ever driven it and was out for the specific purpose of improving, started rough and got a little better but not much. Since then much better.
