TAT GMC crackerbox

Recommended Posts

hello , i have make the fenders with woodglue to the cab so i can figured out where the battery box etc can come on the chassis and i can make the support for it , also for the aircleaner , so now its must a little move back but now i know the sizes









i have ordered a V6 engine for this old lady but if its take to long a take the V8-71

Jim , i have see it

 , i have seen a very nice picture of a GMC Crackerbox with a movingvan , its a single drive from greyhound

i have the decals almost for a year in house [ from jerry reeter ]

can i switch the chassis and wil be no problem for the TAT 2018 , here is the single drive chassis


if you say no than i use the tandem chassis but no movingvan

but it looks so good

How about a Moose and Benji ( Movin On series ) build?

You mean the "Pig Pen", it was a lot rattier and a dual drive. ;)

 Prayers and condolences from to yours on the loss of your Sister ! It’s a hard choice between single or tandem they both look good. You may want to look at it by what you have in your collection of trucks have how many single cabs do you have versus how many tandems.
