Lots of museums could use some as welll.  Rater than having them be sent off to the scrapper, museums and even city parks is where they could draw attention.  Creve Coeur Park Park in Maryland Heights has an old firetruck.  It's one of the old open-cab trucks

 If it doesn''t come with two sticks, how can it be a truck!

Thanks John for the detailed explanation!  I almost think I like the H model best!  The Pete in the PeteCOE197909 pic is... well... WOW.

IF between two nice examples, THAT truck would really require a close "hmmm" between it and a good looking Freightliner!

Andre,

Like Wayne said, raised cab with longer bottom panels to hide the gap and a bigger radiator.Used for 3408s and KTAs, 3408 was standard, KTA optional.The earliest Ive seen was '74 (?).It was a Powerliner competitor, came out about the same time.Might have been used on the 525hp twin turbo 12V71, though the non turbo 12V71 was availible in the standard cab.Heres a '79 brochure that shows the differance.Quick standouts are the steps under the doors, the bigger opening at the front cab mounts/hinges, and the bumper.The 362s were all high mounts like the 352H.John

The maroon peterbilt 352 sittin by itself out of the weeds has a 3408 cat in it and when you look under neath theres alot of room expically for such a huge powerplant, i wish i would have checked the other 2 352h's but there were bees back there and din't have a whole lot of time.

John:

Mind expanding a bit on your "H" comment for the 352's?  Do you know what precipitated Pete adding the extra height? When did that happen? 

Thanks.

I purchased this photo from a vendor while at the Iowa 80 show.  Reckon we will never know just how/where this Autocar came from originally.  Anybody have hermit connections?
