There is a nice one shown in a video on YouTube with a V12 Detroit, in a 67Kenwotth

Thanks for all your contributions to this thread, you answered all my questions and then some. I guess they are pretty rare.  Not much of a Detroit fan,  but the 1693  would be sweet!  Now if we can only get cargostar ( models by Dave) to offer a resin  extended cowl for us!

KFS has the 1693 marked as "Yellow Engine" and I think Spaulding Trading And Shipping may have it, he sells stuff from KFS and I bought one from him once on ebay a while ago.

Why not use the hood from the Super Boss? It's easy to modify.

The Super Boss hood is the longer 74 inch hood.
What's talked about here is the cowl extension used on trucks with higher horse power engines before the longer 74 inch hood came into production in 1970, they extended the cowl on the cab and used the shorter 63 inch hood without cutouts for the air cleaner tubes.

As another side note , the top was smooth until sometime in ‘67 when the v shaped bulge appeared. And yes a narrow nose hood could be had with an extended cowl panel but few if any were ordered that way !

wasnt there a medium grill size also?

Not that I am aware of. There was an extra wide grille with a very large radiator as an option for the T800, but that wasn't available until the late 80's or early 90's.
