   got this on a  e bay "wrecker lot"

  it was awesome that the  mpc kit came with the  box and most of the  original parts to build the  pickup

 

someone pirated the bed of the  super dually and all the  probly awesome offroad tires that were originally there

 

 replaced by the  revel "snaptite" like wrecker kit that has been reissued recently  these 6 wheels are pretty nice and I mite use them for the  build

  I just don't know whether to  lift the truck and go 4x2 action or leave it low to the  ground and make it rear wheel drive only a super fast super nasty 454 big block powered monster like the  trucks seen in the  cannonball run movies!

 

 I made my own "dually bed" by using an old parts box revel 65 chevy truck box and flares...... I simply widened out the  flares by adding sheet styrene (seen on bottom view) to widen out the  flares for the "dual" rear wheels

 I honestly feel my bed is more sharp looking than the one on the  box art and I made it :)

did I mention the  box had the original instructions and the  decals too?  bonus

 plus I got a bunch of wrecker stuff

 

this is my first truck post of probly many to come!

Off to a good start have to build your own parts is always rewarding

I know i'm super happy with how  my "dually" box turned out

  i'm just torn weather  or not to  lift and 4x4 the  truck like the  box model,  or leave it slammed closer to the  ground for that street truck look?? decisions decisions

think I am  going to  go with the  intended  4x4 style or is it 6 x4? because the rear end is dually?
