So indulge me a bit on this one. Back in the 60's-80's Ford made the C600-900, then some time in the 60's or 70's Ford made the Two Story Falcon, a C series cab jacked up and made into a heavy duty Over the Road type truck. Well I got to thinking what if there was a "In-Between" truck that Ford made for more than the C900 could do, and less than the Falcon. 

It would be the C1000, a 1 1/2 story truck. The truth is I have a Revell Volvo truck that the cab is too ugly to even think about using, a box full of C series cabs and some left over wheels and tires from the Linberg L700 and an Italeri truck. 

The Volvo was a twin screw, but I thought it needed to be single so I re-worked the rear to fix that. The engine is the huge Volvo unit and was too large to have the cab sit like a C600 would, so it got lifted and the fenders skirted. The bumper was cut from the grill insert and the bumper will get dropped down. I filled in where the stock bumper would sit. 

So, this is really a parts box build brought on by the "Stay at Home" situation we are all in. It has been one of those builds where I dig though the parts box and see what I have, then attempt to attach it in a meaningful way. Very fluid build with the final outcome developing as it goes.

Nice project Scott, it remind me an old yard truck that was used in the late '70 to move the trailers in the yard of a company close to my home.  I recall myself climbing the side step to look inside the cab... great memories!  Good salvage sir, will be an interesting subject, I do love these old truck!
