AITM - 1950 Peterbilt 350

Recommended Posts

My  wife got me this conversion kit for Christmas.

Peterbilt 350 “Iron Horse” – American Industrial Truck Models (aitruckmodels.com)

I'm not a vintage truck historian, and not interested in doing a 100% accurate replica.

What would be the best retail kit to use for this conversion?

Also anything you would add (with in reason) to create a reasonable facsimile.



P.S. Picture is from the AITM Website.

Yes, but I would change to a spring suspension maybe from the White Freightliner as the 350 did not have air ride as an option.
The Western Unit Stabilaire suspension wich is in the 359 California Hauler came 1964 in the 351, 352 and 359 and was available up to 1970 when Peterbilt made their own Air Leaf.
But everything can be changed and upgraded so you can of course use whatever you like.
