Hey,
It is difficult to find 1949-57 peterbilt brochure of the 280/350 model, But you can get 1971- 1974 Peterbilt model Literature at Mclellans Automotive.

That truck pictured is called several things, heavy weight, iron nose and a couple others, but not a high mount, the high mounts were prior to 49, the way to tell one from a low mount is under the door, there is about a 2" strip of cab below the door, a low mount cab doesn't have that, but are basicly the same cab and dash, a large tabel top dash between the window and the steering wheel.

I can't get anymore out of it, I've got both sticks hot clear up to the knobs allready.

Thanks for the help everyone, i already have the book "Peterbilt the Evolution of Class" and i gotta say its the best truck book i ever bought, i was just curious about actually finding like a regular brochure from the 50's because it be a great peterbilt collectors item, i'm still trying too find those old retro peterbilt emblems still haven't found anything yet. And i just found out something else interesting with the "Iron Nose" Pete's.....they also called them "Hard Nose High Mount", now i'm still lookin around but i think i found out why they call them high mount i could be wrong, is it because how tall radiator grill is? because in this photo i don't Know if its me but that radiator looks huge!

The problem with that book is all the pictures look the same, they don't depict the low mounts with the round and square radaitors, or the high mount cab or the difference of the 49 at the start of the heavy weights.  Although I believe the model numbers and specs are correct for the earlyu years.

If you can't find the brochures see if you can find a copy of "Peterbilt The Evolution of Class" by Warren Johnson. The whole book is copies of original literature and there are spec sheets on the 280 and 350 models.

If your are talking about the square pete emblem, there were reproductions out a few years ago. I bought some from American Truck Wash & Chrome. I think they went out of the chrome sales.  Cortland Truckworks might still have them. NOT CHEEP....................
