Don't know how many were built, or if this is a owner customized truck...

I had that Peterbilt oval grill screen made in 1/25-1/24 in stainless photo etch. You can get it from Plano Model Products. It's listed in the HO Scratchbuilders Materials section.

The Legacy Class 379 series was an 'end of run' tribute package - available on any 379 configuration - any sleeper, Ultracab sleeper, low roof daycab, single axle, tandem, straight or tractor, etc. Special badging and options and numbered series badging 1-1000. The price all depended on how it was ordered - some dealers loaded them up and then loaded the price - others were fairly basic.

The last of the Legacy Class 379 was a 127" with 70" sleeper and long wheelbase in red.

The last of the 379-family to be built was a model 357.

While the Legacy Class 379's were available, other 379's were being built that did not have the option package.
