I decided to build Eddie Munster a Hearse ..eerr C-Cab for his own.

Since building the Dragula,I went looking for a new project when I

spotted the Chuck Miller's Fire Truck.

Our own Chuck Most did a review on it. LINK.http://www.modelcars...=1

First off ..the mods.

Frame Z'ed,body sliced,axles swaped from left over AMT 32 Vicky

,bench seat w/split back,rear doors,Buick Nailhead engine,fenders from

Vicky widened and soon to be bobbed,skull shifter from Warhammer stash

(thanks Ed Shaver).Still undecided on grill..

Going for a Cobolt Blue paint and silver scallops.

Looks good with fenders and those wheels. Appearance wise it's beat a Nailhead, too. B)

55K for that? I need to contact the buyer to see if he's interested in a bridge.

A little update..

Made a split bench from a T-bucket bench and added storage bags

to the backs.Then I added a stair/wheelie bar and a rear pan.

I don't care for the oval single windshield..plus I also section the body.

So I made a new windshield frame and a new dash.

Then I added a Coffin sky light.

Let me introduce you to Spot Jr.

He's a little croc from my parts stash..don't know what kit he's from

but I like the "I'm from parts unknown" rep..LOL

I also finished the Buick Nailhead...added a crossflow water pipe and an alternator w/bracket.

The headers are from the new 32 Ford and the lakes are modified from the 53 Ford truck.
