That's an older T-maxx for sure but can still be a nice truck. The engine is an older HPI small-block but unsure which on.
I usually refer to the older T-maxx truck as the black transmission model. Most of the newer parts will fit so you will have no problem in that area. The newer 3.3 model is longer so chassis braces and so forth will not work.

just take what you nee to the hobby store and match it up, it is the older tmaxx version and the purple flywheel screams hpi, looks like a good basher if it runs and shifts ok, gonna need good servos and an rpm servo saver mod

The rear bumper is missing but everything else looks to be there.
