I used the AMT R685 MACK kit , The wrecker from the AMT 359 wrecker kit . I extended the frame, narrowed the wrecker body a good bit to make it the same width as the rear wheels. I also collected alot of photos and other info off the web and did most of all the plumbing on the engine and chassis. I am now starting to build the 359 from the wrecker kit and the REVELL PETERBUILT 359 snap kit to build A 1980 PETE 359. I am going to try to complete the PETE 359 in less time than it took me to build the wrecker, JARRNO88
