I haven't built a truck in a while and I'm really not a knowedgeable truck guy. But I found this truck at a garage sale for $10 so I bought it. The seller knew that kits were selling in stores for $25-30 so he wouldn't go any lower. Everything looked intact and still in the bags so I went for it.
When I got it home I was even more pleasantly surprised that there was relatively little flash, no mold lines that I could find and the door panels, door handles, badges are all very crisply molded. I quickly prepared the body and gave it a coat of primer. I plan to paint it a two-tone with Ivory on the bottom and another color on top. This will be a quick box stock build, I hope. Thanks for looking!
If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR
Next on the bench: Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
