the revell Midnight cowboy bed fits right on the billy carter frame with no mods needed. wish revell would have combine those two kits for a new wrecker, even if its only single rear wheels.

What type of decales did they change to any service stations like Texaco?
there are no service stations on the decal sheet. just 24 7 towing.

This Chevy Pickup has been issued by Revell several times, including as the "Sneaky-Pete" and Midnite!!
I just treaded one in the Mach-1 Formula Boat set.
I don't care for that Stepside because the frame & suspension are so Flimsy in EVERY issue!!
The Axles are so thin they break if Looked at some times. The chassis frame can warp just from handling.
You get the idea.
Yes, they can be built, and look good, but care must be taken on the frame/suspension assembly
I did build an Original Sneaky Pete. But the Midnite Cowboy I bashed with a Sherrif's Bronco
The Original issue of the Snap GMC/Chevy tow truck was called Captain Hook, Molded in black,
with silver decals I have one I build Way back when New

Wish somebody would just do a new tool for a roll back.

I have to wait and open it on X-mas but I plan to bash it with an AMT Ford pickup kit from the '90's so I have some diversity in my planned fleet of wreckers.
Not sure what I will do with the rest of the kit, might use it to build a beater diorama piece.
