IH shared stampings from their Loadstar cab when they built the Sightliner. To my eyes, a Ford cab wouldn't even be close without ALOT of work.....the only part that might be close in shape is the cab rear wall.

Looks to me that the box is 3 times the height of the tire so ??
Not exact but it'd be close.
