    The Peterbilt 379 is a Class 8 truck produced by the Peterbilt division of PACCAR from 1987 to 2007. Alongside the similarly-styled Kenworth W900, the 379 was an extended-hood conventional-cab truck marketed primarily to owner-operator drivers. Replacing the 359, the 379 would become the flagship of the Peterbilt model line. During its production, it would be joined by the more aerodynamic 377, 386, and 387. In 2007, the Peterbilt 379 was replaced by the Peterbilt 389, which is distinguished with newer-style headlights and an even longer hood. To commemorate the end of production in 2007, the last 1000 vehicles produced on the assembly line were designated as Legacy Class 379.
