Dodge L700 Straight Truck

Recommended Posts

Was trying to decide what to do with the flatbed from the Ford C600 kit and decided to turn one of my Dodge trucks into a flat bed.

Used the long frame rails from the ford to stretch the dodge frame and make cross members.

Nice conversion work, the Dodge L700 kit can adapt to other vocations if you have the imagination and motivation.

I have 2 more. 

The tanker kit will turn into a White 3000 with tank trailer.

The kit with the flatbed will be built like a truck I used to see in Indiana that had either dual drive or more likely a tag axle that I would see hauling a short flatbed trailer with a single steel coil.

Got wheels and tires done.

Debating on wheter to leave the silver bright or hit it with dullcoat.

Discovered one of the cab pivots was 1/16 of an inch longer so had to cut it loose and move it down on the frame.
