Ford F-350 Wrecker

Recommended Posts

built this one over 20 years ago but never finished it. it was recently rediscovered in a box of old stuff in pieces.

I spent this morning cleaning it up and reassembling pieces. two dually kits were used to stretch the frame and for the second rear axle.

I scratch built the wrecker body, boom, and wheel lift. I wanted it to have a big rig flair and this is what turned out.

    Gino,

         that is cool ! I like it a lot. I hope you finish it up in a nice way. What wheels and tires did you use? Rear axles? Suspension?

 

 

    Be Well

thanks jonathan !     thanks gator !

gator ,   the parts used are stock kit parts. monogram 1/24 f-350 dually .

a second kit was used for the second axle and suspension, and the rear frame extension.

I shortened the front springs at the front drive axle,  I placed the second set so the spring shackle for the rear was connected to where the front ended.

the tires are also stock kit parts, they look like the same tires used in a lot of the monogram muscle car kits from the late eighties/early nineties.

goodyear gt radials.  hope this helps !
