It appears this'll be a straight reissue of the NAPA version from the '70s, only this time with Pepsi decals. Not sure if the Ford C-600/800 was reissued with the cargo box after the NAPA version, though.

Round 2's website says it's the first time it's been available with the Trailmobile box in DECADES (hey it's in bold on there - figured the emphasis was important).

It would be cool if they included the Pepsi machine and the dolly.

 

Wouldn't it be cool if this reissue was Pepsi and had the beverage truck body?

Is this kit pretty much the same as the tractor and stake bed versions above the frame rails and rearward of the cab, save for the second, shorter set of chassis rails for the tractor version and the misc. brooms, barrels, etc?

The frame in the C-600 box truck has long straight rails like the Louisville and a much longer wheel base than the C-600 Stake truck.

 
That answers my earlier question.

I haven't found an '70s nor '80s style soda machines via Google yet. 

 

Howza about?

Granted it's pretty price, and the uber-eeeeeevil 1/24, but I think that's your best bet if you want a period correct Pepsi machine.

Scale Modeling by Chris has several different types of resin beverage vending machines. They are a very nice resin piece and they come with the Coke or Pepsi decals depending which one you order.  Besides the Coke or Pepsi, there are a couple of other brands of soft drinks available.

The van body is exactly the same in the Ford C series kits and the Ford LN series kits according to this older post:

Using Chuck's pic of a '59 from the 1:1 C-series reference topic found here: http://www.modelcars...ic=36901&page=0

I saw these 1/25 Ertl early C-series diecast models, but it probably wouldn't be worth buying one only to rob the headlight bezels and headlight lenses, and the lens locating pins appear to be huge:

Seems to me headlights like those came in some old AMT kits as custom options?

I think the headlights from one of the kw kits would work,if you were brave enough to try and cut the holes?I am pretty sure those were a standard size bulb in them,and the housings were just a universal type.Even the ones from the western star or reo kits are the same,only you dont need a hole to set them in,you would of course have to modify the existing hole for the large round lamp.The ones on the diecast trucks houldnt look right,they seem a little to big,not the right scale, Harvey

Never put a big truck together so I have a few questions  .

Will the old car hauler body fit on this truck frame ?

Are they going to release the car hauler this year or did I misunderstand ?

I was fooled by the 50's era truck cab . :)

I assume the race car hauler they are reissuing this year is something like this..

I thought that was the case. My late brother put that together years ago.

I wanted to build a different version of the hauler.

Looks like this person did just that, and it looks pretty good:

Very cool,now I need to dry slobber of the keyboard. 

That top ( tire rack ) looks like the one on the Snake and Mongoose haulers.

I built this one several years ago.  I did have to extend the frame to fit the hauler body.  Steve Prideaux[
