Stretched AMT White Freightliner

Recommended Posts

Another one added to the collection. Started this project about 2-3 months ago with the intentions of making it a hay hauler. Well my flatbed didn't work out due to warpage, so I turned it into this beast! Still debating on putting a deckplate on here. The list of mods is as follows: opening door with an upgraded steering wheel, pedals, shifter, seats, and vents. Stretched the frame roughly 1-1.5", swapped the rims and tires out for a set off an amt California Hauler. The 8v72 came from the parts bin with some slight weathering on it. From the parts bin are the: rear fenders, air tanks, bumper, 5th wheel/platform and cab lights. Photoetch door handles from a buddy of mine. Scratchbuilt exhaust, mudflaps, license plate holder. Decals are a mix of aftermarket, and modified kit decals. Enjoy!

Much appreciated! And yes, with rigs they're very different compared to cars. You can customize these as much or as little as you'd like. They all are configured differently! 

I thought I had a visor for it, but nearing the end I realized I didn't. I actually like it without. Gives it that farmtruck look to it

Very cool like the motor swap my dad had a “67” with a 318 and swapped it with a crate 350 Cummins witch they told him it couldn’t be done wouldn’t fit needless to say installed with a 13 speed tranny changed the radiator added a fiberglass fan changed rear end gears this was the early “70’s” it was a 95 mph truck. Love the build it brings back good memories
