Sounds like you have it "mapped out"? Reckon with a little scroll work
here and there, & some signage on the doors?... she'll look a treat.

Jerry Ol'55, Have signage for the doors will look at some scroll for it too, Oh the roof will be white. One thing with this one the box art has a C-900 on it but the cab has C-800 badge on it, Also have the C-600 ridge with pan its has C-800 on it too. Look's Like AMT used one cab for two trucks. It will worry and upset some but not me its a cool COE Ford.

Interesting truck there Allan, doesn't look like you'd have to lengthen the wheel base any just put the tray straight on.

It's probably a bit longer but your model your call. The cabs all pretty  much forward of the rear of the front tyre so weight forward wouldn't be an issue for carrying 1 car. Maybe a short bogie pan trailer or a set of those single axle pans they use in the US?

So far so good Al. That colour suits that truck. Is this the same model truck that Clint Eastwood drives during the intro of one of the Clint & Clyde movies?
