No kit, there are resin bodys of the Topkick cab, and some International cabs, you can those on ebay as well, and there is a member on here who makes some cabs as well, topkick and Intl cabs, but dont recall who it is or the website at the moment

But the donar kit needed which is an amt c1500 kit , can be costly at times to get one

There were some neat 1:24th scale plastic pre-assembled Top Kicks w/ various utility bodies made back around 2000 IIRC. I used to see them at my LHS back then.

Google DG Productions- they offered utility trucks and others in GMC and International chassis. They are pretty close to 1/25 scale and are realistic.

Porkys (P&P Resins) also has GMC, Ford & International resin cabs available.
