A 1989 Chevy pickup truck owned by a Westbrook man is approaching a million miles. As implausible as a million miles may seem, Larry Ferrante’s Chevy has already covered more than eight-tenths of the way – or so he believes. “About 10-15 years ago I lost my odometer at 605,000 and this is my daily driver so if I had to estimate my mileage I would have 800-805,” Ferrante said. All those miles are thanks to what’s under the hood of the pickup truck. “We have four oil systems,” Ferrante said, “two integrated oil supply systems.” The engine, transmission and transmission are still original.

A 1989 Chevy pickup truck owned by a Westbrook man is approaching a million miles.

As far-fetched as a million miles may seem, Larry Ferrante’s Chevy has already traveled more than eight-tenths of the way—at least that’s what he believes.

“I lost my speedometer about 10-15 years ago at 605,000 and that’s my daily driver, so if I had to estimate my mileage I would have 800-805,” Ferrante said.

All those miles are thanks to what’s under the hood of the pickup truck.

“We have four oil systems,” Ferrante said. “Two built-in oil supply systems.”

The engine, transmission and transmission are still original. However, many of Ferrante’s mechanical modifications keep him running.

Almost 20 years of modifications have included many pumps, heaters and electrical devices.

Ferrante is the first to admit that his truck isn’t the sharpest on the road – he doesn’t even have a working speedometer – but for him it’s all about automotive ingenuity and passion to keep the truck moving.

“I kind of fell in love with it and my goal is to keep it running for as long as possible,” Ferrante said.

He hopes he gets another 200,000 miles or so.

The mileage is not bad for a truck, he says he paid just under $500 in 1993.

“I just love proving that cars, with proper care and proactivity, can last a million miles,” Ferrante said.
