Cruiseliner double bunk

Recommended Posts

To my knowledge Mack never made a double-bunk Cruiseliner so I thought it would be fun to make a "what if" model of one. I have more work to do on it with sanding and primer, but you get the idea...

Very cool project! There were some Transtars converted into double bunks, why couldn't there have been some Cruiseliners too. Looking forward to seeing more!

Great start. I built one of these a few years back. I can't remember the Overdrive edition, it was written Mack actually built a few prototype double bunk Cruiseliners.

If you have any pics of the one you built can you please post them?

Mike,

If you look at the big rigs under glass section, currently on page 14 labeled Mixed Bag of Cabovers, half way down is a picture of my Mack Cruiseliner double bunk.

That's awesome, as is the Aerodyne! B) Coincidentally those are the fenders I was thinking about using as well. Your model gives me even more motivation on this build, thanks!

Thanks guys, especially Rick who gave me some photographic inspiration. I've got color on the cab, I just have to finish some stripe work and I'll post cab pics soon. I'm working 6 days a week right now so I'll have to take baby steps with this one.

I have the cab painted and striped, now it's time to gradually get working on the engine & chassis. I'm sure I'll have to stretch the frame a bit to accommodate the longer cab.

Thanks guys! I'm trying to decide what direction I want to go with this truck. Given my penchant for bling I'm leaning toward something "modern-retro" if that makes any sense. B):lol:

Thanks! I have the chassis mostly done, just a couple more things to do to it before I get it painted...hopefully this coming weekend. After that I'll start on the engine. It usually doesn't take me this long to do a build but like most of us life gets in the way of our hobbies.

I've finally made enough progress on this project to post a couple of update photos. I'm in the home stretch now and I'm hoping I'll be able to put this one "Under Glass" soon.
