I've had access to one in a boneyard, and I've created CAD files for it. I notice this truck has virtually NO rivets. Any interest in this topic?Posted Image

Never seen one before but it's something I'd probably buy if it was available.

big rig modlers are always looking for more variety. I think if its done well and a decient price you could sell some for sure.

I'd consider buying one if done right. by the way, what are those wind screens for on the front corners?

Yes Tom it would do very well! I am currently mastering the next generation of that cab and people are begging for it! That year model has never been done in resin. I would take at least two myself!

I agree! I think it would sell quite well. Looks like I better pick up another couple of Titan kits.

Those are wind deflectors on the corner. They helped prevent mud/snow/splash debris up on the wide windows and were supposed to keep the wind from buffetting the mirrors. The Ford COE's weren't the most aerodynamic.. :rolleyes: In the 70's, the corner deflectors were very common on Canadian COE's of all makes.

The grill is a bit different, but you could build "The Blue Mule" from this i think...?.

I don't know how well it would sell to the general big rig modeling public, but I know I'd be up for a couple. My great uncle had one, and I've always liked them myself.

I'm not positive the cab is the same, but the "Blue Mule" style IS what replaced these. Maybe the cab is the same?

Looking at the 73 Chevelle Tom is making... I'd say this Ol' Ford is going to be an excellent proposition!
