1948 Corbitt 25TG sleepercab
Posted by dsldriver9900 on Friday, March 23, 2018 11:42 AM

Corbitt was the largest truck manufacturer in the southeastern US back in the '30s to the '50s. They built a good, solid truck that many of the eastern freight companies used. They also built many trucks for the US military effort in WWII.

For this model I started with the AITM Corbitt kit, and used the AMT Ford Louisville for a donor. Just for kicks I decided to open the hood, and stretch the cab to add an integral sleeper.

 Thanks for the compliments on the truck! The MoPar is actually a '64 Fury, destined to be part of a crushed car load!

Update, I've added some paint! The wheels and tires came from Jamie at moluminum.com.

I still have some touch up to do, then I can add windows and decals.
