    According to what I read the Cummins was a V-8 185 (I assume this is HP) appears to be a 470 C.I.D., and the Perkins was a 6-354 (I assume that the 354 is C.I.D.). Perkins: Cummins:

    Thanks Jim!! Thanks! The hood does take some effort. Thanks so much Charles! I did debate about the hood chrome along with the roof top accessories. It may not have been the best choice to leave it off, but in the end, I think I liked it better off. I also know that technically the hood release is part of the front hood chrome, but I figured that maybe this one could have a good ol' redneck conversion. Thanks Carl!!!

    This was built for fun. It is a bit of a custom and definitely not a stock build. The cab and fender assembly is resin from KP Conversions. The frame is an old AMT R-Model Mack frame that I got off of Ebay before the kit was re-released, The front springs, front axle, fuel tanks and all the brake chambers came from the R-Model as well. The steering box was from the parts box from an unknown source. The rear suspension is Peterbilt Air Leaf from the snap kit, and I believe the axles as well as the pogo stick to be from the Road Boss kit. The fifth wheel plate is from the snap Peterbilt and the fifth wheel is AMT. The engine is a Detroit 4-71 that was cut down from a Spaulding Trading and Shipping 6-71 with a few parts from an AMT 8v-71 and a few parts box accessories. The transmission and front bumper are from the Ertl Transtar II. The seats are from the Monogram CJ-7. The wheels and tires are AMT from who knows where. It's a little different, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
