Correction:

PIA didn't operate any Boeing 707 registered as AP-AWP. The registration of aircraft model in PIA Cargo markings should be changed to AP-AWD.

Here's photo of AP-AWD in PIA Cargo markings. The exact & correct designation for AP-AWD is Boeing 707-373C.

Boeing 707-320C were Convertible models (C = Convertible). These 707s had main deck side cargo door and could be used as full passenger aircraft, full cargo aircraft or operated in mixed configuration i.e. half cargo/half passenger. Despite the convertible option, a number of these were delivered as pure freighters. The pure freighter Boeing 707-320Cs were without cabin windows. One such pure freighter Boeing 707 operated by PIA was Boeing 707-331C (registration N15711). It was on lease from Trans World Airlines (TWA) to PIA from May 1979 to March 1980. Here's photo of N15711 in PIA markings.

Here I would also like to mention Boeing 707-320B model. It was built as passenger aircraft without main deck side cargo door. A Boeing 707-320B operated by PIA was Boeing 707-351B (AP-BAA).

Thanks Abbas for the clarification.

I also believe that the PIA Cargo model is registration AP-AWD. Lets wait and see when better photos come out...

Thanks for answer Abbas. Samme and I were both wondering why the reg was AWP as the photograph of the B707 in this livery was AWD - may its just a typo by the retailer.. hopefully!

i have had confirmation of the registrations of the models below:

AP-AWD for Cargo with stars on the tail
AP-AWY 'Pakistan International' titles, no stars on the tail
AP-AWU Same as above, but with stars on the tail

All those have side cargo doors.
