The Peterbilt 281 emerged from Peterbilt’s assembly plant in Oakland, California in 1954.
It earned the nickname “Needlenose” from its narrow nose and butterfly hood, popular with truckers for ease of engine access and superior visibility. Like its companion series 351, it had only two small round headlights.
Remaining in production until 1976, the 281/351 was a durable and popular series. The basic design made way for different models, with tilt cab-over-engine models introduced in 1959.
