Looks like a mix. Box, frame, rear axle and wheels from the AMT Ford short hauler front wheels from the AMT Kenworth aerodyne and cab and bumper from the AMT Peterbilt 352 converted to a day cab.

Yup.. 352 kit with the cab cut down to a 54" daycab. Single drive making it a model 282. The body is from the AMT Ford Short Hauler kit.

That is a nice looking truck and would look great once you have fixed it all up.
