mpc chevy "super dually" pickup

Posted · Report post

got this on a e bay "wrecker lot"

it was awesome that the mpc kit came with the box and most of the original parts to build the pickup

someone pirated the bed of the super dually and all the probly awesome offroad tires that were originally there

replaced by the revel "snaptite" like wrecker kit that has been reissued recently these 6 wheels are pretty nice and I mite use them for the build

I just don't know whether to lift the truck and go 4x2 action or leave it low to the ground and make it rear wheel drive only a super fast super nasty 454 big block powered monster like the trucks seen in the cannonball run movies!

I made my own "dually bed" by using an old parts box revel 65 chevy truck box and flares...... I simply widened out the flares by adding sheet styrene (seen on bottom view) to widen out the flares for the "dual" rear wheels

I honestly feel my bed is more sharp looking than the one on the box art and I made it :)

Off to a good start have to build your own parts is always rewarding

i'm just torn weather or not to lift and 4x4 the truck like the box model, or leave it slammed closer to the ground for that street truck look?? decisions decisions
