Do you know if anyone casts the deluxe cab with the corner windows? I really like that generation of GM truck and I;d like to build a version of each - the standard and the deluxe cab. Looks like yours is going good places.. should be interesting to watch.

Oh... No idea really. Are you talking the ones in the back of the cab?  It is a 5 window cab.  Yeah, these era trucks are pretty interesting for something different. Dont seem many around being built, which is kind of why I decided on building one.

Looking good so far, what direction are you going for this? if your going for a sort of custom look this would look great:

Using the headlight surround and front bumper of a 55 belair like the gmc truck from overhauling would look good. just a suggestion.

Both the AMT kits are Deluxe cabs- the full-glue and snap kits.

Is the kit you're building this AMT kit? I was wondering if it came with a regular front bumper? I like what you did with the truck bed. Love the color too.

Nice work so far Christopher, I'm almost finished with mine. Watch out for the windshield, mine had a gap almost all the way around it, test-fit yours and you might be able to correct it before you get too far along like I did. The rear side windows needed to be massaged a bit to get them to fit flush too, but otherwise it's a great kit. I want another one to make into a screamer with a big-block in ti!

Yes it does come with the factory bumper or the option of a push bumper.(I turned the push bumper into a old timey light bar)
