I saw this yesterday and wondered if this would have been a special order.

I don't recall ever seeing a standard cab dually. I may have before extended cabs and crew cabs became the norm, but it would have been years ago. Anybody know if it would have been a S. O.? Now I want to build one.

Most likely was a special order but I don't think Ford makes a lot of them. Could have been a cab/chassis combo originally and then the bed was added either at the dealership or by the owner. I remember seeing a few trucks over the years like that but most of them were old work trucks that had the work bed (tow body, dump body, etc.) removed and a used bed added.

 

At one time Ford had a short bed dually, usually with an extended cab or crew cab, not sure if they still have that available. Those were interesting to see!

 

 

Build it!

The local dealer keeps regular cab duallies in stock, so depending on how you want it equipped it might be a special order, but that cab/bed configuration has always been available from Ford.

It seems I remember my Agri teacher in high school had a standard cab dually Chevy. It just looks odd in this era of mega, quad, super, extended cab trucks now days. I think I will build it, but I'd like to find a similar year pickup kit. Really don't want to go the resin or die cast route. Not that there is anything wrong with them. Just more comfortable with a kit.

I see regular cab duallies running around all the time in the current body style. They usually have giant SpaceKaps on them and are used for CAT service trucks or something similar.

That's cool. This is the first one I've seen in years. I like the look.

Those are pretty standard to see around here...mainly on dealer lots...but if you want to build one....get the revell dually kit (ford) thats about the newest you can go....unless you scratch one or what im doing is creating one for a cheverlot ...Now if you want to build that particular year there "Will" be resin stuff out hopefully in another year or two!? :P

Have to agree, quite common. The regular cab is the standard but it does seem more of lately are extended cab and crew cabs.

 

Anyway, no kit is made and the only resin I found was the emergency crew cab truck and they wouldn't sell just the cab. Although diecast this might be the easiest way to build one in 1/25.   F-350 extended cab 4x4 dually.  Looks pretty simple to remove the back doors.

Matchbox made an 1/24th scale F350 dually diecast about 10 years ago, I don't recall if it was a regular cab or extended cab.     Late model regular cab pickups of any form are pretty uncommon around here, I mostly see extended and crew cab PUs....

I have seen a lot of this style Ford P/U diecast, but they are all 1/35th scale,  I did do a search a few days ago after I saw the Ford Fire truck thread, and could not find any 1/24th scale ,  it was smaller, so these are going to be hard to find now

'Matchbox Ford F350'

 

There was also a Texaco-livery wrecker version.   The Texaco one I have is this--http://www.ebay.com/...=item23282dfc5e  but IIRC I paid under $20 for it back around '00.  Matchbox had a 1/24th Dodge Power Wagon then also (the '40s era one).

Tom,  who makes that diecast?

 

This one is marked 1/25 scale on the box and was made by Spec-Cast. I did not scale it but Spec-Cast makes all their farm stuff true to scale.

Matchbox also offered that Ford with a Fire truck body.

Some said they found them in Wally's, but I never saw them there.

 

I did see a Campbell's version in a Tuesday Morning once, but did not get it.
