GMC 9500 Tandem Tractor

Recommended Posts

This is the AITM short-nose 9500 cab kit, perched on top of an AMT GMC Astro 95. I modified the front wheels to fit the float tires from an Ertl IH Paystar, and made up mirror and exhaust brackets. All in all, one of the easiest conversions I've done in a while. Now I'm ready to order another one and the long-nose variant. :)

Awesome build!! Looks great!! Winn Dixie grocery stores used to run these trucks. I hope to build one of these one day myself. I have the two headlight grill for one of these.

That's a tough looking GMC. How did you do the windshields, did you fab your own moldings?

Yep- I used some plastic D-section and overlapped it a bit over the opening, so that the clear piece would fit flush against it from the inside. 

Thanks guys!

Great job! Using a GM frame with a GM cab really adds to the authenticity.

Brings back memories of a very similar truck I used to have, only difference is mine had the flip nose and a 24 foot roll back equipment body. BEAUTIFUL build!

This is a really nice build. This truck isn't one we see modeled very often.
