    Both AMT kits originally had the torsion bar suspension but were switched to the extended leaf hendrickson early on. AMT didn't change the numbers to match.

    The Revell snap kit is a perfect start with the exeption of the 8 bag air ride as it wasn't available yet in 1976. Most vit200s I saw had either the KW torsion bar or 4 spring suspension.

    The three that the company I'm with had red frames. Of course thats because they repainted them.

    Actually the interior was white with red and blue trim. The gold was kinda of an odd tannish gold.

    Many a b61 used the camel back suspension although very few used the heavy 55000 pound one found in the dm 600 kit. The lighter highway version found in AMTs cruiseliner and r600 would be more common. Same for the front axle.

    Correct Macks two stick trannys were all in one housing. The dm800 frame is like the dm600

    No problem the Allison is somewhat different in design from an automotive tranny.
