  1. The box art actually shows 5 lug 2 ton budd type whees an option L series Dodges.
  2. Any updates don't seem to be any news yet. 2019 is 3/4 over.
  3. Let's give credit where it's due the great grand daddy of the 379. The 1938 Fageol.
  4. As some of you know I'm a big Western Star guy but since I sold my truck and drive for a friend now I drive a 579 witch shares a cab with the 567. I've drove many 359's and 379's over the years and while they're great looking trucks I wouldn't trade my 579 for one. I'm very pleased with my 579.
  5. Matchbox is incorrect CJ trucks were black and orange.
  6. Correct. The Western stabilaire was also an option on the Dodge Bighorn however only the prototype was built with it. The prototype bighorn is in the process of a ground up restoration by a bighorn collector in Georgia.
  7. You are the correct one sir. Also note on the blue extended cowl the old KW 4 bag air ride.
  8. Come to think of it sort of resembles some current Aussie KW's.
  9. They clearly used the 680/880 style cab. It's just too costly to build the w9 on a different platform from everything else for a limited sales model. I'm as ole skool as they come but I wouldn't trade my current 579 Pete for my old 359.
  10. Just bear in mind the w900l was a replacement for the w900a extended hood after Kenworth had no extended hood model for a few years and wasn't fully accepted either. Twenty five years from now will hear the same old complaints when they replace the 980.

    Yep 9670 set back boat loads of them in the US at one time. This one appears to have a tractor at one time. Most of them were exported to middle east and South America when they were wore out.
  12. The original box art was the same only blue.
