I'm throwing together a curbside ramptruck to haul the '66 AWB Fairlane  drag car that I've been working on. The cab is from a diecast WIX bank. The bed was made from scratch. The wheels and tires are from Scenes Unlimited, awesome products btw!

After sanding down the black a bit, I applied a couple of coats of Duplicolor white primer. Then on to the Poppy Red spraybomb.

Awesome! What did you use for the framerails?

It's a curbside, so there's no frame.

Great looking race team. I like the colors and wheel choices on both! If you ever decided to use a frame,  I guess the '73-'79 Ford pickup 1 ton frame would be the best donor, but in this case you would need a least two. The front suspension would have to be altered, the. Twin I beam first came out on '67 F 350's,  the 1966 F 350 used the old style straight axle and leafsprings.

That is a really cool project. I want to do something similar to the resin 65-67 Dodge D300 cabs that I got. I just bought the Revell 68 Dodge Dart Hemi as a christmaspresent for my self. That would look great on a similar style Dodge truck. Great job you have done on this:)

Thx! I think the next one I do will be a 1967-69 with a complete chassis.
