Dug some old trucks out for a few pics tonight...

These ones are franklin mint '96 4x4s. Gotta blame this diversion from regularly scheduled programming (plastic kits) on Mr Jessee. Came across his mar 2000 light commercial column discussing these and suddenly decided I needed one(or two) B) Threw the motormax camper on one to see how much work it needs to match up.

The little ones are 1/43 '68 and '70 F100s that have entered the marketplace recently. Unfortunately still no bigger bumps available yet. The big red/white '79 in the background is Mr Sam Walton's weathered truck (just begging to be refreshed with paint, chrome and a nice set of mudders). Many will recognize the liberty diecast '79 that has appeared in everything from Shelby blue to Cornhuskers to Haliburton colors. This one is canadian tire's kick at the can.

The Walton and Franklin trucks share more than the included pets...

They also share what are close to the worst representations of Ford engines (300 and 302) in scale <_<

Very interesting ! I wasn't aware of a 78-79 F-100 ever being cast . I own a 78 Flareside myself and I used to own a 79 F-300 .

Here's another 1/43 '70 from Brazil. When I get some time to detail it, I'll throw on the torque thrusts from a 1/43 deuce I've got sitting here.

The other two are matchbox 1/64, a '79 and a '70 'Texas ride 'em' series from '09. That '79 was first issued in red and white as 'sam's truck' exclusively sold at wm stores.

Here's a link to more on other matchbox 67-72 ford diecasts... http://www.fordification.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=45618

And here's a couple more from Argentina...

Cool F-series diecasts Mike!

Do you happen to have the First Gear 1/25 scale 1973 F-100? Just wondering how accurately scaled it is?

I've seen it in a couple of different colors but not up close yet. Front wheel arch looks off but I bet uncle Jesse wouldn't mind. I don't really anticipate buying one at current pricing as I'm not really a fan of that 73-5 grill...

The Liberty diecast is more like about 1/26 and the walton truck is at least 1/24 with goofy wheel arches too..

Spotted this pretty little 1/24 '69 on the big auction site tonight. No idea who makes it yet.
