Back in the '70's, when this truck would have been on the road, the laws regarding overall length were pretty Draconic... They would have had to keep a short tractor wheelbase to be legal in the Eastern States, even with a 40' trailer... Only trucks registered and running in the Western States could get away with stretched frames, cabovers and hoods alike.

Looking good, Jacobus! keep the hits coming!
