I look forward to watching this project, I love the subject matter!  With your skills, it will be awesome John! 

I remember seeing an article years ago about this truck.  Seems to me it was used by Mercedes as a fast way to transport race cars around Europe in the event of a breakdown at a race.  There weren't any big trucks with spare cars on them then.  The article inspired me to get in waaaaay over my head trying to create a similar vehicle from an American manufacturer.  I cut about 3/4 inch out of the front fenders of a '57 Chevy wagon to shorten the nose.  Didn't take me long to realize I did not have the skills needed and set it aside. 

 

I will enjoy this one for sure!

I have the F-250 kit which I pirated other parts out of so I can use the engine.  I looked at it and saw it was gas, not diesel.  There has to be enough information out there I can convert it.  the plow truck engine looks huge.  Thanks for your help Mike and Chris!

I think I will just have to make something up then.  Wonder if the unidentified V-8 Diesel in the ford Dump Truck would work?
