TAT. Dodge LS 1000 SD Finished


Recommended Posts

This is a build that I've been planning for many years after I found pictures of this rig. The story behind the rig is that Chrysler sponsored the Spurrlow singing group in the late 60's. They went around the country preforming at schools. I'm starting with an resin Dodge LS 1000 cab from AITM, AMT White-Frightliner SD and Bill Elliott stock car transporter. The trailer still has some hurdles for me I would like to change out the the wheels to the smaller size and I'm not sure how I'm going to paint or decal the trailer to match. I'm open for any ideas anyone may have. 

So far I've started on the frame.

Dodge was a little strange.  The LVS/LVT1000 was the designation for trucks with V6 or V8 engines, while the LNS/LNT1000 designation was used for trucks with I6 engines.  The "S" was for single drive axle & the "T" was for tandem drive axles.

I've been working on getting the frame together and have now a coat of primer on it and have been dechromeing the wheels and fuel tanks. I'm going to use Testors Star-Spangled Blue I think it is close to what I see in the pictures.
