I came across this when I was looking at diecast. Anyone hear of this or know its origins? Is this an AMT tool?

Actually it's a Testor's 1/24th scale pick-up, released about ten years ago!!
It was red on the box...and based on a rock band actual vehicle!!
It has white stripes everywhere on the body..
It was custom version only, just like the Lindberg one.

its a cool kit nice lt1 or 4 all c4 vette under
I don't remember on the 1/1, I think the kit is just a curbside or has an LT1 in it as well as the C4's IRS, I can't remember for sure. I think the rest is pretty much all C-1500, just can't remember what all was done to the front end to make it what it was though.

The real one is also on the front cover of i think Hot Rod magazine, maybe Carcraft

I think 2 versions were offered of the "Boyd's Hauler"
Full glue & Curbside. The Curbside may even have been a Slammer with black-out windows and NO interior.
I did not buy any then as I was not interested in the non-stock only build
I believe they did the same on the Chezoom "57 Chevy" kit too

I built the Testors kit some time in the 90s as a kid. It was the full detail model, and it was a very good kit. Good to see it coming out again.

I picked up a Boyd;s Hauler opened kit at a garage sale. I see it is a Testors kit. It loks cool. Does anyone have any insight as to possible problems with this kit? Thanks.

I have 3 of the Testors / Boyds kits.......A lot of work, and I have had lots of warped parts.....All the frames have been warped!
