If this is a stupid question, I apologise, but is there a difference in fender size between the 379 ext. hood and short hood? Someone crashed my assigned truck into a fire hydrant and the fender now looks terrible

It's happened before. The guy is at home for a couple days. Driver b's truck is in the shop, but he has to deliver his load locally. "Here, take @Dave1837 's truck. He won't be needing it until Monday."
Funny story, well, it was to us. A local trucking co. who's boss was retired, but kept his "personal" 379 large car for special occasions. They hired some new guy, boss comes in at 8am, no Peterbilt. Cardinal sin. Turns out, the new guy saw the Pete sitting there, and took it. Needless to say, the guy was fired on the spot when he returned. It was short, glorious day for that guy.
I remember as a kid my dad had to deliver some watermelons that somebody brought from out of town. There was a K100 that needed 1 axle replaced, but they couldn't get an axle in time. The shop tried welding the splines on, but that didn't even last to get out of the yard. So my dad locked up the axles, and we took the 120 mile drive from Fontana to LA and back the next day while they were waiting for a new axle. I was probably 9 or 10.
I was off work for a week and a half, my daughter was born early and has been in the NICU. Just like @Bean Jr. said, they sent a part time driver out in my truck to do a short local run. When I came back to work it was around 4am and I noticed I had a new bumper...then I saw the fender. They still won't tell me who crashed it because they think I'm a good employee and don't want to see me go to prison. All I know is, the driver crashed it into a hydrant and left grease all over my dashboard and passenger seat somehow
