Autocar/ Challenge Transit Mixer


Recommended Posts

I’m going to take the reissued KW Challenge Mixer and put it on the Autocar DC-9964B. Looking like it’s going to be a easy switch so far. I will see how it goes as I get building it. I’m still trying to decide on what my colors are going to be. What ever I do choose for this one will determine the colors for the other mixers I have in my stash. Maybe this company will be Super Bee Transit Mixing. More to come.

Nice build Dave thanks for sharing your pictures. I don’t remember seeing this one at the shows that I have been to.

I did mine years ago, used the Autocar A64B and the older nose conversion from AITM: https://pbase.com/baywing/image/164880926

Thanks Warren for sharing your build I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one to use the Autocar with the transit mixer

great start Dan

Thanks Ken. 
 

I believe that I have the frame ready for some sublime green paint. I’ve used a white primer for going under the sublime green. Added the hydraulic pump on the front of the truck.

Great match up!  Your giving Round 2 ideas for a future release!

Thanks Tommy, Round 2 should do it the mixer fits on the Autocar with very minor modifications. I’m sure they could also use the dump body on the KW to. I already have different plans for mine.

Love the green Dan.. What paint did you use?  Your build is looking awesome..

Thanks Carl I used Scale Finishes sublime green and Krylon white primer. I’m going to clear coat with Scale Finishes 500 clear.

I’m just about finished with the mixer section and I built the engine for it. The kit does not provide any brackets for storing the extra chutes so I scratch built some and I’ve had to modify the platforms a little bit to because the fenders are not in the same location as the kit. Looks like I could of lengthen the frame about 20 scale inches but the rear axle spacing is bigger than the KW.
