Sorry for the absence of posts but I have had some major life changes. this is the 1973 Oregon Jaycee show truck. They had a different one every year to show off Oregon logging to the country. I had several color photos of the actual truck to work from. I made all the markings on my computer. I stretched the frame and added a AMT Peerless log trailer. I used chrome 5 hole Budds from a et of doubles.
