Some are ABS, like the Jeep Wrangler and Pajero Metal top, but most are styrene like the F-350, Hilux, Tundra, Clod, Lunchbox, Bruiser, Blackfoot, Subaru Brat, Lancia Rally, etc.

You can look at the body, all have the type of plastic they're made of molded into the body:

ABS - acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
PS - polystyrene
PE - polyethylene

Thanks for setting me straight, I've only dealt with the Wrangler so far. I think the styrene from Evergreen is PS, correct?

Yeah, PS is the styrene everyone talks about, and is what the Evergreen stuff is. Interestingly, I've only recently encountered a Tamiya body made from PE and that is the new 2010 blue Holiday Buggy body.
