back in the 80's a tv news station in texas did an interview of the first owner and did a whole feature about trucking and drivers.this truck was all over tv's watching the news that day lol.i'm trying to track down a tape of the interview.once weather permits,ill get better photos.

Greg,

Your photos of your dad's truck could not have come at a more opportune time for me. I'm working on the Revell Snap Peterbilt 395 which is a 1986-ish truck, and I'm planning on doing the Oxblood red interior. Your photos are great! Thank you, thank you thank you!

Greg,

I'll take whatever you've got: engine, sleeper (mine's the small 36", but I don't know what the walls are supposed to look like), cab. The engine on the model is a Cat 3406A. What's under the hood on your truck?

I really appreciate it. You can PM me if you want to.

Jim

Exactly as a 359 should look! Unmolested, not bestowed with a zillion doodads and vinyl.

I'm with Tim on this one, this is just what a 359 should be. Reminds me alot of my Dad's '87 359 he had before the 2000. Pretty much the same, except his was a teal color and had a 400 Big Cam Cummins and a 13 speed.
