816/238-5666. This unusual tourist attraction was erected in Oct. 1976 to advertise the newly-opened Farris Truck Stop on I-29 at the Faucett, MO exit. The 1974 Peterbilt truck, with a 1965 Fruehauf trailer, stands at an overall height of about 50 feet. It is mounted on pillars, set in 60 yards of steel-reinforced concrete. This display also commemorates the town of Faucett, founded on July 19, 1890 by R.H. Faucett
