Model 567 Heritage Recalls Peterbilt’s Roots

June 14, 2016

Peterbilt Motors has unveiled a Model 567 Heritage, which combines a rugged-looking vocational truck with special exterior and interior trim that harkens back to the company's West Coast origins and days of the "large car."

“Peterbilt’s Model 567 Heritage elevates the classic styling of Peterbilt with a package of unique features that will command attention on highways and job sites,” said Darrin Siver, the builder's general manager and a Paccar VP. “The Model 567 Heritage appeals to owner-operators and premium carriers who want to reward their drivers and add distinction to their fleets."

Peterbilt’s history began in the rugged Northwest logging industry, manufacturing trucks that took on the demanding work with high performance, reliability and durability, he said. The special 567 evokes that tough look in a thoroughly modern vehicle.

Basic specifications include a 121-inch BBC and set-forward front axle to optimize payloads and weight distribution. It can be spec’d as a daycab or with a 72- or 80-inch sleeper box, and as a truck or tractor. Exterior features include:

  • Bright bumper, grille bars, exhaust stacks, mirrors and sunvisor;
  • Chromed air intake bezel and metal hood latches;
  • Polished rocker panels, quarter-fender closeout panels, fender brace and brackets, battery boxes and fuel tanks; and
  • Special Heritage badging, uniquely numbered and mounted to the grille and sleeper (when applicable) for the first 567 production trucks.

Interior features include:

  • Platinum-level Heritage Brown interior with a black dash top and wood-finish trim;
  • Premium brown leather seats with accent stitching to complement the cab design and embroidered Heritage logo in the headrest; and'
  • Door pads with brown wood trim.

For sleeper versions, wood trim accents continue on the cabinets and storage compartments. The two-tone sleeper back wall is embroidered with the Heritage logo. The Model 567 Heritage is available now for order through Peterbilt dealerships with production scheduled for September.
