Default Help! Trying to identify this truck body...

I've had this for many years, since I first got into r/c, but now I have no idea what model it is or who makes it. Trying to find out as I want to repaint a new one for an onroad rc10gt project I have in mind. Been searching but just cannot find it. Nothing on the body would help to identify, especially with the masses of stickers I stuck on back in the day. If you have any clues as to which 1/10th truck body it is, please halp!

SORRY FOR THE BIGASS PICS

It is a "Hot Bodies" body for a Associated GT. The company was based out of NJ. I knew the owners Tony and Ed, the company closed down about 8 or 9 yrs ago.

To avoid any confusion I should have added that the body was made by the owners of the original "Hot Bodies" name. All they made was lexan shells, some pretty funky stuff at that time. This was before the "Hot Bodies" of today was even thought of.

That really is a "HotBodies" Chevy for an RC10T or GT.

I have a brand new Ford body for the GT (painted; but PM me if you're interested).

HB made some really good looking shells, but they were WIDE compared to say a PL F150 or Chevy race body of the time ('97 '98).
