Here are a couple of photos of actual Peterbilt 352 that I have on my computer.  Most are from Hank's Truck Pictures (recently closed), but I took the photo of the Crane 352.  Hope these help.  The Oneida rig is a 352H with (I believe) a Caterpillar 3408T, the green & white Lyden is a 352E, and the Spector 352 has a Caterpillar 1673.

That's a 362, I don't know of any model of that, likewise for the 352H and 352E in Jim's post.

Here are some ideas, substitute the longer California hauler frame in place of short 352 frame, use the narrower front bumper, use painted steel wheels instead of aluminum and replace the V8 with a 6.

Mid 60's 352. Was this cab design ever done in resin?   If it was, is it presently available now or is it  another of those cabs  that came and went?
