Bertha, the White 9064

First thing was to shorten the frame. Dropped it down to 226". Here it is with a box stock Autocar rail.
And here's where I'm at with the cab and bonnet. It still looks kind of off at the moment, but all the measurements are correct if the correct length from tip of the nose to back of the cab is 90", which I believe it is.

Does anyone know what this kind of suspension is? I know it's Hendrickson, but it looks to be one solid piece in lieu of leaf springs.

And here is the best I could do with the available reference for the frame brackets. Still some more to do, but most of it is guess work, and I'm certain it's not 100% accurate.
Still not 100%. Sprayed some parts black to see any imperfections, and there are still plenty.

Reminds me of that wrecker in Maximum Overdrive that tries to kill Curtis!
Good. Means I'm on the right track, since that's exactly what it's gonna be.
