Hey folks,just finished this MPC Ramp Truck. had some minor issues with a few things,but nothing a dremmel couldnt take care of,,lol. I wont bother goin into it,,it turned out cool just the same. Ive always been a fan of the mid-late 60's and 70's Chevy trucks. So I kept the decals on cab to a minimun,,to enjoy the basic cab lines and design.Rattle can testors quik dry Firey orange,,Hardware store paint for chassis,,and hand painted details. The kit came with only 4 wire wheel rims,,so found 2 more in the leftovers parts bx. The Chevelle is an AMT pro street kit done a while back. All in all,,glad to have it on the shelf! Thanks for lookin,,build on!
This is essentially an AMT '60 Chevrolet Custom Fleetside with a few changes and upgrades. It was meant to be a quickie shelf build, so there isn't a lot of extra brake line plumbing or major body mods. Just a nice kustom pickup in flattened light purple. The '60 Mercury grille is an old AMT Parts Pack piece that was narrowed to fit the Chevy Surround. Emblems, tailgate latches and door handles were shaved. The front bumper was flipped, and the lower section painted to give the front end a bit lighter look. Lowering was achieved in three ways. Smaller rubber and mags are Pegasus Sovereigns. Rear airbags and the accompanying compressor/tank are from AMT's '39 Chevy Wagonrod. Most of the drop comes from a severe 5"-6" (scale) channel. Extra height was removed from the inner bed sides before reattaching the rear fenders to provide clearance for the slammed rear end and dual exhaust system, optional parts from an AMT '51 Chevrolet Convertible. The exhaust terminates in stainless turn-downs from a Metal Bug sci-fi detail set. Those stake sides came from a Revell '41 Chevrolet pickup. That same convertible donated the dual-carbs, intake, split exhaust manifolds and valve cover. D&J aluminum air cleaners, and Detail Master pulleys and distributor add more WOW when the hood is popped. After trimming down the firewall and interior side panels to raise the floor, the seat needed to be cut down to sit directly on the floorboards. Scale Motorsport zebra decals add some spice to the pearl white and purple interior. Like I said, nothing too fancy. It may get a hitch so it can trailer around an old dragster or some wild bubbletop rod.
