Maybe Tim Boyd can shed some more light on the LVT-1000 which was to be produced?

They didn't for very long, as far as Class 8 trucks go. I think they were in that business for less than a decade.
I didn't even know that Dodge ever built the big guys! Cool!

I've posted this particular tractor before, but I finally got around to adding the trailer to it.

They said the LVT-1000 was too old to be commercially viable but, I sure would love to have one or 2...
IMHO, Testors has made several decision that were bad for Big Rig modelers. They displayed a Peterbilt 362 cabover, yet never went ahead to produce it. It seems their bias towards cars has cost truck modelers at least to interesting kits.

Dave offers the daycab version as well. The one pictured here looks like the one from Aussie Resin. Dave's kit also includes his usual goodie package--mirrors,exhaust, air intake, wipers, steering wheel & column, etc.
A daycab is offered too.

Dodge and Ford used the same cab with their own details just like Ford c series shared a cab with the Mack n series. Cab sharing between competing brands was common.
These both look very similar to me, but I don't know if I'd call them the same cab as the Dodge above? Interesting, either way:
