California Hauler Retro Rhetoric

Recommended Posts

Here's my Amt California Hauler I built. I was sort of inspired by kens and claytons builds from this kit. I didn't get too crazy with it chrome Mercury sleeper, blue tinted windows in cab n sleeper and a chrome visor. Just a nice old classic with whitewall tires.

Nice! Looks like it came right off the back of Owner Operator Magazine in one of those "Class" ads.

Between the color and the whitewalls. It kinda has a art Deco look to it. I like it. Though I have never seen a tractor with whitewalls??? Still it looks cool.

Be Well

Great job on the California Hauler. Very early 1970s. I like the color & the chrome Mercury sleeper. I will admit, I'm not a fan of the whitewalls, though.
