Yep! DCP are my favorite! I have the first ones ever made. I even machined a really detailed two hole Budd wheel to use on them and then cast it into resin. At the time, no company offered the two hole wheel in 1/64. They would replicate them by just painting a ten hole wheel white. Then Revell came out with some trucks and they made a beautiful little two hole that they used on some of their trucks. I have their International with TNT pups. It's just as nice as a DCP rig!
Nice truck. The DCP 1/64 are by far the best made.

I'd say the whole thing is about 13" long. You have to see the detail on one of these trucks in person to see just how nice they are! Working steering, opening doors, full engine detail, photo etch pieces. Die Cast Promotions are by far the best 1/64 trucks ever offered and they have made almost every type of trailer you can think of. The early tractors had cabs that lifted off the chassis to expose the interior. Interior features included, seats that actually moved up and down (as if air sprung), actual soft carpet on the floor and working, tiny sun visors!
Wow ! That's incredible ! I know it's 1/64 scale , but how small is it really ?

The First Gear trucks are very nice.
