IMPROVED DECK DESIGN WITH LARGER, ANGLED BOTTOM RAIL
MODEL TRUCK IS INTENDED TO SHOW MODEL PAINTED AND INSTALLED AND IS NOT INCLUDED. One styrene plastic rollback carrier/tilt chassis kit. Universal kit is designed to fit most 1/25/24 scale truck chassis with only minor trimming required. I recommend AMT Dooley 3500 or Dodge dually 3500, Monogram F-350, or Revell wrecker Lenny's Towing or any 1-ton model for best results. Parts are unique and totally scratchbuilt, and will function like the prototype. Parts included are: carrier body/tilt chassis,telescoping hydraulic ram, tilt hinges with metal axle fastener, winch, winch base,and wire for cable, J-hooks with real chains, cable hook, some scrap styrene for pivot point on truck frame, leveling, etc. Carrier measures 8.5" L X 3.5" W, chassis is 7 3/8" L (varies) X 1 5/8" wide on the inside. Most model cars and trucks will fit on bed no problem. Model truck chassis/wheelbase will need to be lengthened (stretched) for proper apperance and operation. Cut truck chassis about 1/4" behind cab andspread the two halves so there's a gap of 21/2 - 3" between. Measure distance from back of cab to rear axle...should be about 51/4 - 51/2".Fill gap with .100" thick styrene cutto matchtruck frame. Add thin styrene to joint(s) for strength and give it all at least 12 hours for glue to dry.Test fit, test fit, test fit! Install pivot point pieces for tilt frame as far to the back of the truck chassis as possible for clearance. Drill small holes, set frame on truck, line up holes,and insert metal axle.Assemble hyraulic ram and note location on frame. Glue pivot rod to frame with tilt chassis in down position. Did y'all get all that? After the sale I'll offer any technical support needed to assist with assembly (uh, within reason, of course). I've been building and selling rollbacks on and I guarantee the quality and functionality of this item. Some light sanding may be required before painting.
NOTE: Each carrier model is handmade and may differ slightly from model shown in photos and each other. I try to keep at least one in stock but some models are built after I receive the order. In some cases a few extra days may be required so I can build and ship them out. I'll let you know if I'm backordered or not. Any changes to this design or add-ons OK but I'll need to know in advance as this may affect the final cost.

This is a scale model and not a toy - It has small parts that may become lose during shipping. Normally they can just be glued back on by anyone with modeling experience.
