###### wish I had my pics but I am getting a surgery and don't have my Dad's picture of his '63. I have been wanting to do this model because I remember riding in the truck. It was yellow and brown. If you wait for a month or so I will be able to post them. If not sorry. I have two pics front 3/4 and rear 3/4. I would say for everything to be close if you have an itch to start it use a Chevy Titan or GMC Astro kit. The wheels my Dad had the spoke dayton wheels those kits have. It had a short wheel base similar to these kits. Wheels were brown. Lower part was brown and upper yellow. It had a single exhaust with the aircleaner right beside it.

TJ and Jerry,

Those Whites bring back a lot of great memories, thanks for posting the pictures. What company is making the resin casting for the White 7000 and White Road Commander?

Jacobus,

Looking forward to seeing your White after you finish your Diamond Reo project. Is your Ford WT Finished?

The red McClean posted earlier is one I built back when Spaulding's offered this cab about 10 years ago. I scratchbuilt the frame from C channel plastic, but today I would use a Titan 90 as the donor for ease or even a Road Boss.

The Astro chassis makes an excellent universal chassis. If I remember right White during the 60s and 70s used a tube shaped crossmember which was carried over to some Western Star trucks to this day. I know my 2004 WS had them as did a friends 1968 White 7000. Glad I could help Jakebus.
