Very nice! I wonder of what vintage it is, does anyone know if that smaller sleeper cab was available the entire run or does that signify an older truck? I know the square headlights came about in the early 80s, but the K100 pretty much stayed the same on the outside through its production run, which I believe ended around 2005, same as the 362.

Never owned one but got to drive K100's as a team driver several times in the late 60's--the cab was so tight you had to crack a window open to close the doors--made a trip from LA to Quantico VA in one with a 335 Cummins and another to Cape Canaveral in one with a V-8 Detroit as well as some shorter runs. My favorite COE----nice shot Ray

Walt, how did they ride in comparison to other cabovers of the era? Kenworth now has the image of being a more premium offering in some respects compared to other brands, so just curious as to what they were like in the late 60s or thereabouts.
