Hi,

I have one of the Lindberg Dodge L-700 kits, but Im not sure what to do with it, my idea is to do stretch the chassis to a rigid and add a body, that would carry a single car and do as a Chrysler dealer delivery truck?

Does that sound OK? Ive looked and cant find much on the Dodge L-700!

Or is there any other conversions I could try?

Not much info out there on this truck!

I remember when I was working on mine - searched the interweb and found very little info on the L-700. therefore I just decided to go straight forward, build it OOB and do some damage to it:

I seem to remember someone writing an article in one of the Model Mags a few years ago on those L700 Dodges. If I remember correctly it had some pretty good info on how to stretch the chassis and what the various wheel bases were. Now if only I could remember who did it. 

 

Oh yeah it was Model Car's Mag. Check the Jan 2009 issue 138.
