I sent Ron an email if he had any interest in converting the currently avail D100 to a heavier D300 or larger. And he's interested.

 

If you are contact him at

andrews_544@hotmail.com

 

I already have my name in the hat on the 1st two out of the mold.

 

I want to do this truck and others

Price ? unknown. I am not the manufacturer, just simply passing on the info.

 

But I have one of his D100  4door cabs and I think it was in the $35-$40 range

I have a picture of a Petty hauler truck very similar ( if not the same) as this era cab. And it is a 4 door cab. But I ' think' it's a later 60's model years cab (will post as picture tonight )

i am very interested....hope it will be done

 

A lot of possibilities......most of the late 60s-early 70s Mopar NASCAR/ARCA teams used the cab with some variation of the ramp back.

 

The Petty and the Snake trucks were D700 crew cabs

 

Drag racing possibilities are the Snake & Mongoose haulers, Sox and Martin and more.....

I would be interested for sure!!!!!!!! I have two of the resin crew cabs that Tom Coolidge made but they would need to made into the heavier version. A friend, who is a member on this forum is currently working on a styrene "kit" of the transporter bodies that were used on the Snake and Mongoose trucks. Here's a bunch of pics of the real trucks. http://www.public.fo...-funny-car-tra/

The Petty hauler, which later became the Snake hauler, is a '67.
