Rhino!
This is an early 359 with high doorhandles (and little window), that makes it a 1972 or older.

Except for this, there are two other good looking Peterbilts in this scene.
A green with yellow stripes and big sleeper (Eagle I think) and a yellow/red, also with a customsleeper (not Peterbilt original).

Does anyone know anything about these, do they still excist?

C.O.Bruce had some of the fastest trucks in the country back then. The Low Window truck is parked in Blum TX. a quiet little town on the edge of the beautiful Texas hill country. 6210 Farm Market Rd. 933 Blum Texas 76627. I grew up not 30 miles from there. That truck is a landmark around there.

Outlaw: Interesting! How fast could it have been? 600 horses?
I would so much like to see a photo of this truck, even if it looks the same today. You don´t get to see the whole truck in the movie, just this shot in a couple of seconds...

1968 Peterbilt 359. Claude Bruce Jr. (C.O. Bruce) owned it at the time of filming. I don't know what it had from the factory, but it had a KTA-600 Cummins swapped in for the original engine. That got taken out at 950k miles, and it was replaced with a 3408 Caterpillar. After that, it got a 3406 Caterpillar. Luke Cornelius bought it, put a KTA-600 back in, and owns it to this day. It now resides in southern Minnesota.
