Peterbilt 397?
« on: November 25, 2008, 08:47:13 PM »
Wondering if anyone has pics of a 397? found a little read and wondering if anyone has a pic/more info on one.

Quote
397: The largest Peterbilt built, and the rarest Peterbilt ever made, with only two built. These were stall-built custom units with 40"+ wide frames designed for extreme off-road use. One unit was destroyed by fire, the other might still be in use today

The HotWheels Peterbilt was based on a 353 or 387, not the 397. (original 387, the beefy construction truck, not the modern swoopy truck).
