Thanks for posting this picture.  It is a beautiful thing.  I happen to have a day cab single axle TransStar II that I hope,  one day, to have looking as nice as yours.  Could you post other shots of this beautiful rig and its load?

4090 was designed with bigger radiator for big engines but only made in early 70s  we're not available after 75 and the transtar 2 came out

Is the other Transtar you have with the Cat a 1673, 1693, or a 3406 transplant?

Was the 4090 similar to Freightliners "Powerliner"?  I read about it somewhere - it had a big wide front grill (I don't think it looks as good).  The 4090's I looked up seem to have the same grill as a 4070.

Could you get KTA's in IH Transtars or did the KTA come out later, or was it ever even offered?  

Another random thought... I can see the V-8s and V-12's did have some application in cabovers, as they should have a lower engine height versus the I-6's, all things being equal.  The hot-rod cabovers back then did seem to use a lot of 3408's and 12v71's.

The other one is a factory 3406a which they were kinda rare .      They did offer KTs in them according to sales brochures but I have yet to see one. And I have yet only seen 3 in my life 4070s cat powerd
