The Peterbilt Tanker Truck is one of several variations of Matchbox's 1981 Peterbilt casting. It is most closely related to the Peterbilt Wreck Truck, sharing that model's body; a bracket behind the cab anchors the tow booms in the wreck truck, and the tanker shell in the tanker. Both models also share the same base, including the same license plate (21257 PC).
The Peterbilt (Tanker Truck) has come out in the following 1/80 versions:
