the crew cab would be very cool too. it could be build as a cool work truck like the one in "Fire in the Sky" or i'm sure alot of people would like the cab to build some racecar haulers with

Sweet! I'm not the only person who remembers that movie, or the truck! B)

I kind of remember this as a new truck being as the local Dodge dealer had one in Tourquose. I never ever saw any more as the bucket seat option wasn't really considered by most to be a practical thing then. I'm glad Model hause did the model though as this is definenetly a rare bird . Ed Shaver

I remember when I used to spend my summers at an aunts house in Los Banos California, that there was a local CHP officer that also had a performance shop/gas station, & was a MoPar man, well anyway, he had one of these trucks with a short bed buckets,console the whole magilla, except one big difference, his had a 426 wedge with the good heads, & one of those cool cross ram 2 four barrel manifolds, that was one quick truck, he had a 3" pipe rear bumper with screw on caps so he could add or subtract weight from the rear of the truck.

Was the CSS the first US pickup w/ bucket seats? Must be pretty rare..never seen a truck from the '60s w/ them...

Chevrolet had a bucket seat option in '63, RPO A50, as well as a Bostrum seat option starting in '61.

I talked with Don About a special project I want to do. A Crew cab is indeed coming It will have a short bed.


Tell me that it will also have a chassis that can be built as a 4wd and I will buy two! I think these trucks scream for a 4wd chassis!

Nope, no four wheel drive. You'll have to rig that from something else. The chassis is kind of a generic platform with some detail, based on the '64 Ford that Don did last year. So maybe you can look at a newer Dodge, like MPC's '70s pickup. It's a different chassis, I guess, but would do just fine in a pinch.

And it's not unusual that people would update chassis components.

The four-wheel drives were just a typical ladder frame with a solid axle fore and aft- would not be a big deal whipping up your own if you're so inclined.

OK Terry, I bit. Or, to be more accurate, bought. Ordered one from Don a couple of nights ago based on your original post above....I am sure surprised to see a kit of this car....er...truck. Now...who's gonna do a '67 to '72 Ford F150? TIM


I'd 'heard' that Model King Dave Burket is/was working with someone on a '67 to '72 Ford, but I haven't seen anything in print to validate it. Next time I speak to him, I'll pry a little. ;)

Hopefully, nobody. An F-100 would be cool though! Sorry, couldn't resist.
