Nice clean look to it, check the direction of the tread on the front tires.

It jumped out at me and I had to say something. :)

Thats the 72 chevy body?

I think what I like most is the links. I need to get some of those. I have tried every type of connection for round links and they all twist. I now just connect them to the axle tubes with custom mounts.
Nice looking truck.

I was going to buy that for my clod, that would have been my first choice. Instead I got a brand new dodge mega cab 3500 from proline.

Some guy was selling it online in calgary and he even dropped it off at my work for $20. That will the first test body for the clod.

Then I will get the 72 Chev and hope it looks as good as the one pictured.

That's one cool truck! Nice and low. Looks like a limousine with that extra wheelbase. :D
