This is a '69 F100 kit I bought for parts, set up on a spare AMT '78 frame. It's built to resemble a weird old wrecker I remember seeing as a kid- a regular cab short bed pickup set up on a crew cab chassis, with a semi sleeper stuck between the cab and bed. I used a Mercury from one of the AMT White/DR kits. The wrecker boom is from the MPC Datsun monster truck, built mostly box stock. The rear bumper was made from diamond-plate pattern plastic, and I used a rear step bumper on the front after seeing an old pickup in a junkyard with a similar setup. I think the hitch on it came from the '84 GMC kit.

That is very cool!! I like the addition of the sleeper! I've seen a few like that around here over the years.

Looks great!  It also answers my question about whether or not a Mercury sleeper will look right mounted behind the resin '69 F-700 cab I have...
