Autocar Bucket Truck
Posted by Mopar-D on Tuesday, January 01, 2013 6:03 PM
I recently saw this truck on our beltway and already had the AMT Autocar dump truck kit and had won this bucket chassis on e-bay I think it may of come off a First Gear truck but it is a 1/25 th scale. I know that the current Center Point Energy trucks are white but they were green at one time. Im looking for some current Texas license plates to add to it. Your comments are always welcome.

Very nice build. Nothing looks better than a working Autocar. I love the bucket truck conversion. Very well done.

That's a car plate, but the state and colors on the plate are right.  Nice work.  We see those go by the house every once in a while.  Yep, they're white, but they do still have Autocar trucks.  Nice work!
