I do not want to say this was an easy build.  It had it's moments when stuff did not want to fit correct.  I used the flame decals from an old t-bucket kit I had laying around.  I also created a custom exhaust.

OOOOHHH!!!! That is GORGEOUS!!!!! I really like the way you painted the fenders and the tanks the same color... Not that it hasn't been done, before, but your execution of it is seriously awesome... I'm really diggin' this one... Outstanding job..... That's a good looking rig, Bro....

A truck with character! I like it very much. ?

The matt black pipes, sun visor and nameplate above the radiator grille make the vehicle individual and harmonize perfectly with the red and chrome parts. Very tastefull!

It is an interesting fact that one of the rarest step variants in reality (only 1972 to 1973 and also not in all units produced during this time) can be seen in the end on almost every model of this great truck.

Great looking truck!

Love the flame decals and custom stacks. They look like something an owner-operator from this time period would have done. That and keeping their rig clean.

One question though. Were there no trailer connections provided by the kit?

Thank you everyone for your comments.  David I am waiting to get the trailer on it before I put the hook up on.

Ah, that makes sense. 

It was just conspicuous in its absence.
