  1. This is a old AMT Autocar DC I’ve had for about 16yrs always undecided what till make till last winter. I decided to make it a Dump truck. I took my brother Bill’s old bed he gave me back around 1986 and re-do it. Bill bought a new AMT Autocar Dump Truck when it first came out in 1972. He painted the neighbors fence to buy it of course I helped I was 3yrs old. The cab shied and front was bad so I replaced it with a Ertl one I had. Here’s some pics of the bed and truck in progress.

  3. I bought this kit off EBay about 2 yrs ago and this kit brings back a lot of memories to me. I think it was Christmas of 1979 Mom and Dad got this kit for me and my brother Bill got me the GMC General the same Christmas I have a pic of them some where that my mom took of them when I finished them. They were my first model trucks.That was 40yrs ago so I thought I would build one for the Anniversary of this first model truck I got. I will be adding some spoke wheels and a tarp and a headache rack to this build. Hope you will follow along.

  4. Ron. Wow!! What a great build at the moment I’m building some 1/25 trucks also I might post one. Here my brothers 1967 Kenworth he and dad restored and I helped a little. I can’t link the video from YouTube but if you go out and search 1967 Kenworth 318 Detroit you’ll see me driving my brothers truck. Great progress so far keep it going

  5. Back in 1990 when I started my Trucking career I use to see these trucks all the time on the Interstates and the Railroads on Flatcars. I never cared to much for this truck until about 10 years ago when I started taking a closer look at these beasts. Now I’m hooked on them. This is my first “Modern” Millitary Model I’ve built. I bought this off of eBay and it was missing the instructions, shelter building, and the cab top. I now have 5 of these in the stash now if this build goes well I plan on building more.
