This one got most of its parts from the General. I got a very rough casted body, with the sleeper alredy glued to the cabin. There was warpage, and cracks. Floorboard, and dash was casted as one piece, and the grill was whitemetal. Lots of work, but I was very happy when finished. I love this style GM trucks, so I might buy my self a AITM kit as well.

Who made the conversion? I've been looking for one of these to do duty as the tractor for a late 1960's G.M. car carrier I have in the works. It will eventually act as the display for several of my Corvair builds.
