Yes it can. Here's 50 Chevy I started ( and haven't finished) I was going to make this a GMC too so it was more work.
The other picture show a Ron Cash resin cab.
The Topkick was available in resin if I'm not mistaken. It would be a lot of work to build one. It depends on your skills and how bad you want one I guess.

EDIT: Found them... I saved them to my HD, as reference pics. I forget who posted them originally, but it wasn't me. Credit goes to whoever posted the originals... this is not my truck, just some pics to, hopefully, answer what questions you might have...
I with we had a pic of the unprimed hood. Get some .040 Evergreen strip, maybe .188 or .25" wide to make the hood taller and remove a section to shorten it. Cut and shim wherever you need to to get the darned thing to fit and look right.... That's mainly what scratchbuilding is... Making it look right...

Yes that's how it's done. The hood is tricky. It has to cut into sections and pieced together with styrene.
The internet is a great source for pictures. The H.A.M.B. at jalopyjournal.com has an ongoing thread about COE's. great reference.
In the interior,there is a hump on the floor for engine clearance like full size vans.
