The white one in the last photo looks like it has a sloped hood which would make it a 388......but then again my Pete knowledge would fit in a thimble. ;D

Nice shots Ray!

I agree with Charlie. You can't tell from that shot but look at where the rivets line up between the cab and the top of the hood, on the blueprint featured on this page from Tim's Trucks.

The gap between the horizontal rivets on the cab and the hood is bigger on the 388 thanks to the hood slope. And also I think (but can't confirm) some 388's have one-piece fiberglass hoods that don't have rivets on the side. If Tim would care to share his expert opinion I'm all ears.
