When there was an opportunity to pick up a couple of these diecast 1997 Ford F-150 trucks for less than five bills each from Big Lots a few years ago, I thought that they would be great for modifications (a flatbed, perhaps) and aftermarket parts at least. The 1:24 scale model is a 2004 Funline Muscle Machines 'Monster Garage' "Tree Shaker" release.

The 1:1 tree shaker featured an 800 Lb. shaker head, a 10 foot diameter canopy for catching fruit and/or nuts, and a motorized conveyor belt. The 1:24 scale model has steerable front wheels, opening doors, retractable canopy, and the shaker head pinches together. I especially like the flame jobs on the vehicle's front and on the driver's seat, the movable canopy, and the chrome wheels.

Thanks for looking...

Transforming a F-Escort into something cool is not the easiest task but I think you have succeeded here.
