Do You Remember The Big Brutus 6x6x6 Monster Truck?

The Big Brutus 6x6x6 monster truck was owned by Charles Flynn of Henagar, Florida. The unique monster truck was based on a 1985 Chevrolet Silverado, but that is where the similarity ends. It was powered by a 650 horsepower 454 big block, which was backed up by a TH400 transmission and 2 1/2 ton Rockwell transfer case. The axles were 3 steering 5 ton military axles with planetary units. The bumps were kind of softened by 5 ton leaf springs and 24 Monroe Magnum shocks. 73″ tall Goodyear Terra tires put the power to the ground. The unique rig weighed 25,000lbs, was 13’2″ tall and 12′ tall. I would love to know how long it was! The custom built frame was chrome plated, as was the driveshafts and transfer case. The one remaining question is: Where is it now and does anyone have more photos or video?
