"Great kit"
jeremy.s.michels1
This is a great semi and perfect for any one of AMTs trailers. The instructions are fairly easy to follow. Due to the age of the kit, there is quite a bit of flash that needs to be cleaned up on almost every single part. The only issue I have with the kit are the chrome pieces. When cutting the pieces off the sprue, the clean up tends to take the chrome plating off, and it needs to come off in order for the glue to work anyways. I took all of it off and then repainted it a chrome color. I would recommend this to anyone that is a fan of semis.

"Class of '69!"
GTClassicPlastic
This California Hauler kit from 1969 is a Legend in it's own time. This kit features the older style cab (and grill) that they call a small-window cab, and has square door corners unlike the newer Peterbilt California Hauler kits with the rounded doors and new style cab. Also, this kit comes with a big Super Charged V8 Detroit Diesel, unlike the later ones witch came with a in-line 6. Another difference to point out between this kit and the newer Petes is that this one comes with the rear leaf spring molded to the frame and would be hard to relocate them for customizing, (I like the newer style that has them as separate pieces where they could be used as helper axles or third axles). Like all the other reviews, yes it's an old kit so expect allot of flash; and allot of time is spent 'carving out the pieces' before they can be painted, especially smaller parts like the shocks, but even the cab needs to be cleaned up around all the parting lines where the molds come together. But with patience, these kits make GREAT-LOOKING models and are very accurate to the real-life prototypes! The construction of the parts in this kit lends itself great for modifications and customization.

 
"Peterbilt 359 California Hauler"

Another great kit from AMT's reproduction line. This is one of very few day cabs available. The bottom of the box shows all the parts in the kit. This is a fairly easy model to construct and an awesome addition to model truck builders collection.Kit is also highly detailed.

 
"Classic"
m1abully
I just finished this Pete and loved building it.Of the AMT kits Ive done this one had the best fit and the least amount of trimming to do.It all went together fine except the rear mudflaps will touch the rear tires but it wasn't enough to bother me.I will probably buy several more in the future and recommend this kit.

Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
