That is good news. I might have to get 1 or two of those California Haulers. They will build into a very cool old school Peterbilt!  I'm looking forward to its release!  All that is needed now is for Round 2 to release the Kenworth W925 Conventional.

The W925 wont happen unless they modify the molds back... they modified them into the t660/800 kit.

I too Anthony would love to see the W-925 come back. All we can do is hope they work the molds and do them again.

T600. The T660 is a newer truck and has never been kitted and the T800 is only available in resin.

I hope they'll consider that, but perhaps not before doing one more run of the T600/Canepa before doing so. Sort of like they did with the big-scale Charger street machine before they changed it back to the Richard Petty stock car. As flawed as those T600s are, something about them just speaks to me... and I'm not even that big a fan of the 1:1!

 

Anyway, back to the subject at hand... I've always wanted to pick one of these up, but I've never been able to find one for a reasonable price that was still complete. I'm glad they are going to be able to bring it back mostly intact- there was a rumor going around that the tooling for this one had been dumped into the Detroit river at some point. Looks like that wasn't the case!

Original had green glass Steve and no sleeper. I've got the T500 issue brown box art one here with the sleeper and the original tow truck issue.
The grills were different on later issues and is and easy way to distinguish between them on the box arts.

I´m into cars and not familiar with big rigs. Is this the kit that can be modified into a Duel truck? I´d love to add one to my movie model collection. The Plymouth Valiant that I have in the works wants to be chased through the display case by something.

Yes, this is the kit.  You'll need to convert it from a 359 to a 281.  This might help:
