DRIPTROIT 71

Peterbilt 358 twin stick 1100 cab

Recommended Posts

This is the AMT Peterbilt wrecker from the construction series. The hood is a Bill Drennen conversion.  Detroit 8v-71 power through a Spicer 4x4 twin stick. I was trying to achieve a base model fleet look.

Man, you finished it!!! Awesome looking truck... Excellent color choice, too... Really looks good sitting on that yellow frame... Great subtle weathering, too.... Man, those wheels and tires look good.... The steers fill out the wheel wells nicely, and the drives just look amazing!!! Seriously awesome work...And that Grille!!!

Brian, I think you captured the "old fleet look" perfectly.  Your 358 looks great.  Very well done.

Thanks DJ!

If I'm not mistaken the 358 was made from 1965 to 1976. Peterbilt also offered a conversion kit for the 351 to switch it from a butterfly hood to a 358 tilt hood. With that said, I "assume" there may be other year models that began life as a 351.

As I commented on the Model Truck Builder forum, you’ve got the perfect balance of weathering to make it incredibly realistic.

Thanks so much! The grill came with the hood when I bought it, but I believe someone may have added it extra. I’m thinking that it may have been a product from Ben Wicker but I am not sure.

A beautiful everyday rig, well built and really nicely painted. I particularly like how authentically you have reproduced the grease on the 5th wheel
