Do you see a pattern?
Yeah, you prefer blue and green cars over orange ones.

I normally don't check Craigslist for models, but I was up late building last night and couldn't sleep. So I did what any hopelessly addicted model car nut would do, I surfed Ebay and Craigslist for kits. I found a add for a guy cleaning up his basement and had some leftover models. So I went over today and bought all that he had. Thirty five kits heavier and $170.00 lighter, I have this box full of unbuilt kits. I will post better pictures in a few minutes when I carry the box down to my model room.

Plans are for a tear down, cleanup, adjustments to stance and new rolling stock. Maybe a different engine and new bumpers. Rub out and polish the old paint. Reassemble.
Check it out....
Chrome is pretty tired.
Tonneau cover, interior, and inner fenders are brush painted white over the original red plastic.
Some nice detail painting in the bed. Exhaust stacks didn't survive the mail. Deuce bumper attaches to extensions made from bit of chrome sprue.
The all-chrome 401hp 390 is under the hood.
Deuce bumper in the front, too.
The best side. Definitely needs to have the wheelbase adjusted.
Tires are rare Revell Parts Pack U.S. Royal Masters!
For some reason the chassis is brush painted flat red over the red plastic.
Cab's going to need to be removed and reattached to fix this problem!
Looks great with an original issue box!
