Default Found an RC at a yard sale-any idea what it is?

Hi everyone, I found this rc at a yard sale a while back. It's got four-wheel-drive and Futaba radio gear, but other than that, I don't know anything about it. It works great and I'd like to either find some body parts and fix it up or sell it, but I can't figure out what it is. Any help would be appreciated!

Here's some pics:

It is a Tamiya TA-02 based car. With the wheels it looks like it was the stadium truck that was made.

Yep, its either the S-10, or the F150 they had.. I really wanted one of those when I was younger.

Well, I looked up Tamiya TA-02 cars, and it looks like this probably was the S-10 truck, but I did some Googling and found that they made a Mustang kit based on the TA-02. I drive a Mustang that looks just like the kit and it'd be awesome if I could get one of those bodies for this. Does anyone know if the Mustang body would fit, or would I have to switch some parts around? (wheels obviously since the truck wheels would look dumb on a Mustang)

Mustang body (by HPI or Tamiya) will fit just fine if you use sedan wheels and tires. You might also need to buy a body post set.
