Hi Bob...

Labatt's has two trucks they send out to car shows in the summertime....

This one, and a Keg Truck...

A close friend of mine get's the job of hauling them around .....

He and his Wife babysit the two trucks at the shows...

Did you know there was a Diecast produced of this very truck?...

Take care....

Bill...

This is gonna be really cool. Id been wanting to build this exact truck for a few years but could never figure out where to start because of the extreme shapes involved...Ill be watching your progress on this one for sure.

Thanhs Codie it is going to be a task but as kennb said take your time.I have being in contact with the Brewery about the restoration of the truck and they are getting the person whom restored it to send me as much info as can be found .It my not be perfect there is not much info so far example frame can get pictures so some peices may not be right but 'm using ideas from uor machines that I build at work

Projects like this one are definitely worth the time anf research in the end. The H61 Mack I scratchbuilt took me nearly two years on and off to finish, I had collected heaps of pics and even contacted the Mack museum who sent me out a gold mine of brochures and spec sheets which meant I could build the truck as close as possible to the real thing....I also did the same for my W71 I'm building....but I've lost interest in building lately and tucked them all away until I get the bug. again. Builds like yours definitely keep me interested and I hope we all get to see this get completed.
