There were many shows that used trucks like this...think you might be right. Could make a cool...lunch wagon...tool truck...mail truck...fire rescue truck..etc. Me I want to find camper trailers and motor homes in scale for some project ideas I have.
I have had a large diorama planed for many years been collecting items for it over the years...now just have to find a MRC gas station kit and a few others things for it before i can start..it will be my first one.
Man that is a bummer...I love restoring old promos and collecting them. Far as I know there is no cure for the old body I have some like that myself. I have a 61 Kit buildup I am trying to restore it was heavily customized sadly.
