Don't know how many were built, or if this is a owner customized truck...

I had that Peterbilt oval grill screen made in 1/25-1/24 in stainless photo etch. You can get it from Plano Model Products. It's listed in the HO Scratchbuilders Materials section.

Thanks for the link Ben! I definitely need to order some of that for a project I'll be working on after I finish the "Turnpiker"...

The Legacy Class 379 series was an 'end of run' tribute package - available on any 379 configuration -  any sleeper, Ultracab sleeper, low roof daycab, single axle, tandem, straight or tractor, etc.   Special badging and options and numbered series  badging 1-1000.   The price all depended on how it was ordered - some dealers loaded them up and then loaded the price - others were fairly basic.

 

The last of the Legacy Class 379 was a 127" with 70" sleeper and long wheelbase in red.  

 

The last of the 379-family to be built was a model 357. 

 

While the Legacy Class 379's were available, other 379's were being built that did not have the option package.
