Finally managed to finish one of the thirteen projects I have going. AITM conversion kit (with headlights from a Mack DM 800 parts kit) on an IH 4300 donor chassis. Wheels (and possibly tires) from Double Take Replicas. Inspiration photo in background is from Robert Baciulis Flickr pages. Wish I could take some outdoor pics but there's too much snow to mess with that now.

Beautiful build of one of the first type of truck I drove for Red Ball Movers locally!

I'd love to find an Emeryville conversion.

Thanks guys. Dave at AITM has these conversions in stock. Great quality and fast shipping too.

Thank you all for the kind words. This is my second resin conversion that I completed and I learned a few lessons along the way.

The snow finally melted here in Ohio and the weather was nice enough for some outdoor shot yesterday. The Fruehauf skateboard was built back in 2018.
