I haven't seen a 359 with 379 wipers, and as far as I know that's the one sure way to tell them apart that I always use.  This truck would probably be just a 379 that has been modified to look more like a 359 as it's common to see different grilles and headlights on 379's and 389's.  Also, I can't say for certain but I think I remember hearing that another difference is that 359's will have a tube connecting the air cleaner tanks and the hood; look up images of 359's on Google and you'll see what I mean.

I get what you're saying, at the 75 Chrome Shop show I went to there was a 389 out there where the company put 359 style headlights and breathers on it as a throwback to the 359. But you could still tell it was a 389 because of the grille. But yeah you might be right, but I wouldn't know. I know the intake hose you're referring to on the 359's, however I don't see that on this one so who knows.

That Horseless Carriage KW is great! Such a timeless looking livery. The Oakley O/O is sharp also, they have quite a few nice lease drivers it seems.

I like the last set. 8) FCI is a local outfit for me.........been watching them run around since the early '70s when they ran primarily Mack R models. I caught the Waggoners cabover a couple of years ago at one of the Ashland VA TAs i believe............just saw it on Tuesday broken down on the Staten Island Expressway (I-278) just past the VZ Bridge toll booths. :(

Thanks Charlie :). FCI is an outfit I've seen a few times heading up and down the Beltway, but they're a rare catch for me. Not sure if they mostly run conventional Pete's but that's all I've ever seen. Sad to hear about the Waggoners COE, I've seen this one a couple times, always hauling those sprinter vans. Hope it's able to get back up and running, this photo in particular was taken while I was at my old job so it's long since outdated.

That is one very odd looking cabover hauling that set of car chassisses. Very interesting catch! I would like to see the interior just out of curiosity.

Thanks Sam! I agree Z, that was my first thought the first time I saw the rig too. I feel like it's gotta be an overhead bunk, but I guess we'll never know unless one of us happens to  meet the driver one day. I'll never say never but this seems like one of those mysteries with good odds of never being solved.

Awesome pics! On that Waggoners Freightliner FLA, I believe we had a discussion on it awhile ago and it was mentioned the driver said it was an overhead bunk. Shame to hear it broke down, hopefully was able to get back running. Waggoners hauls Sprinter vans up from the Mercedes plant in SC and they need all the extra space they can get on these setups. It is the only remnant of Waggoners' auto hauling division as the rest became part of United Road in 2013.

Awesome, thanks for digging that up Jon. Yeah I hope it stays on the road, it's a rare setup for sure. I'm disappointed to hear about Waggoners auto hauling division though, I remember way back when I caught an enclosed setup similar to the Argosy style enclosed haulers but this was a normal trailer with side curtains. Guess I'll never see that again.

Edit: Found a super crappy shot of it, I was sitting in rush hour traffic at the time so there was no good opportunity:

To my knowledge, United Road has possession of those trailers now, if they even still use them. Waggoners ran quite a lot of older equipment, so I am sure those trailers are pretty long in the tooth if they are still being used. They had quite a lot of them though. They bought several former Werner Enterprises Classic and Century tractors to haul them, as well as having O/Os.
The division that hauls the sprinters seems to use open trailers as I don't think the Sprinters, which are pretty large, will fit in them.
