AMT Open Road Camper

I bought this Open Road Camper kit from AMT. It was a fun built. The camper did not come with a truck. I understand this is a re-issue, and the original release came with a Chevy truck. I'm trying to find a donor truck that I can use to put in front of the camper. I have a 1955 Cameo, and a 1941 Chevy truck that I may use. I'm not sure if they will fit. Using the 1941 Chevy will require cutting it in half. I don't like that. The 1955 Cameo already comes in 2 pieces. I think I will start with that one.

If you don't mind paying over $25-30 for one on evilbay that is.

Even the last re-issues of the 72 Fleetside go HIGH!!

Look pr parts lots/builts to get them cheaper.

got a few good rebuilders that way

Putting one of those on a Revell 65 Stepside.

Stretched the frame to Longbox spec for it to fit!!

That Mini-Motor Home might look good on that 55.

Just remember to stretch the frame

I don't think Chevy offered the 8 ft bed till the 58 Fleetside

55-57 Cameo's were the same as Stepsides,

since that is what they mounted the fiberglass fender to!

Yes, I agree. I think I want to use the 1955 Cameo. I tried to see if the 1941 Chevy would fit, but hat truck is so pretty by itself, I did not want to mess that one up. It deserves to be built as it is.post-10095-0-48109000-1356319076_thumb.jpost-10095-0-95429800-1356319184_thumb.j

I have some of the long bed 72 Chevy truck stuff. Missing the long beds though...would be perfect for that camper! Lol. Did that camper come with the wedge bed car hauler too?

That camper looks good with most any cab from '50-'75. I also have one in process on a '65 Chevy cab.
