Milk Truck - California Show Car

 

  • Original year: 1969
  • Company: Doyusha (original from Eldon)
  • Scale: 1/25
  • Designer: Bob Reisner

 

A mod rod, this old style Milk Truck, modeled after the famous California Show Car has original a fuel injected supercharged Pontiac engine and late model rear end construction, leather and plush interior, a hydromatic transmission and truck type steering wheel.

 

This is my version, also a very old build.

Missing parts and a triple broken front axle forced him, to wait into a box.

After a long time, I raised it back to life.

The front axle is glued together again, the engine is made out of a Studebaker kit and mixed parts.

I hope, you like it.

Very nice. I had that kit back in the day. Blew it up with a firecraker if I remember right. Heck, I blew alot of my models up. Wish I still had them all. : (
