Produced from 1991 to 2007, the Freightliner Business Class (FL-Series) trucks were a range of medium-duty trucks assembled by the Freightliner subsidiary of Daimler Trucks in North America. As the first medium-duty trucks sold by the company, the Business Class series was available as both a straight truck and fifth-wheel semi-tractor. During the late 1990s, the versatile Business Class was also a popular choice in bus applications, in both cowled-chassis (school bus) and cutaway-cab configurations.
As the first all-new, medium-duty conventional truck range introduced to North America since 1980, the design of the Freightliner Business Class was heavily based on components from a proven, pre-existing product range. Using the mass-produced cab of the Mercedes-Benz LK “Leichte Klasse” (light class) truck line introduced in 1983, with the addition of a conventional-style hood/engine compartment, Freightliner based much of the Business Class trucks on the Brazilian-built Mercedes-Benz L-Series trucks sold in the United States market. Freightliner had been owned by Daimler-Benz since 1981 since tooling for the production of a crash-tested steel cab structure is one of the most expensive items in truck development, the sharing of an existing cab structure for the FL-60 Business Class trucks was a major cost-saving measure and a prime contributing factor in the success and longevity of these hardworking cargo haulers over their long run.

Offered from a renowned private collector, who used this 1998 Freightliner FL-60 to pull millions of dollars’ worth in collector cars, it does not require a CDL to operate, given its desirable single rear axle and hydraulic brake combination. Powered by a Cummins straight six backed by an Allison five-speed automatic transmission for ease of operation, it features an AM/FM stereo with CD changer, air-conditioning, power windows, air ride seats - upgraded to off-road suspension seats for an even smoother ride, tilt and sliding steering column, a small sleeper behind the front seats with privacy curtains, storage boxes on both sides of the bed, three fuel tanks for long range, onboard air compressor and hose, and an air ride, fifth-wheel kingpin trailer hitch.
