Very interesting, nice work too! I don't know much about these tucks but you have a convincing build going, like to see it to the finish!

Did you scratch-build the cab also?  Would you consider doing a resin kit?

Crane Carrier built concrete mixer chassis in the 60-80's.  This would make a great mixer model.

I appreciate all the kind words.  I'm going to try to post a reference picture of an actual rig today.  I'm making some progress and will post updated pics soon. 

Also, this cab is purchased from Dave Natale at aitruckmodels.com  Dave has a ton of cabs wheels and accessories available, he has a nice chassis kit for the crane carrier.
