AMT/ERTL Paystar 5000 Question

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for the titled kit for an upcoming project.  I see that this truck comes in 4 varieties, tractor, logger, dump and mixer.  (Sadly, I had the dump version many years ago and it got beat up so bad I tossed it).  As I only need the chassis/drivetrain, I'm wondering if all the versions are the same or do some have shorter frames?  (I need a longer frame if such exists).

Given the going prices, I may have to use a different donor kit.......

The frame in the mixer version is longer than the rest, I can't remember if the rails are longer or there are extensions to add to the normal rails. I have the dump and mixer versions at home and can check if no one else chimes in.

I think that they all had the same long frame in those kit's, The mixer,logger,dump, and Regular tractor which would be just the truck from the logger kit.

Trying to remember back 30+ years ago, the frame extensions would make sense.  Just trying to eliminate some of the guess-work as these things are getting expensive. 

Thanks for the replies.

All the same chassis’

The mixer uses frame rail extensions that go over the rear of the frame.

Thanks, that's not how I would have expected they did it.  Looking at my upcoming project, I need more wheelbase so looks like I'll be cutting!  Jeff is sending a chassis and I picked up a set of frame rails off flea-bay, have the cab from AIM so I'm on my way.
