I'd would say its an old Adams motor grader, just by the position of the engine and the look of the rigging. I'm no expert but I'm fairly certain the Caterpillar/Russell Motor Patrol graders all had their engines behind the cab.
FWIW, here is an Adams. http://www.pada.ca/lib/images/2/1750.jpg
...and yes, it would make a very cool model.
