Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

"Rolled Back" Car Carrier & '61 Chevrolet Impala - By Wayne Calder

Here's another look at this very interesting combination of 1961 Chevrolet Impala street rod and custom car hauler from Wayne Calder. This hot-rod type truck is based on a HotWheels model. It is certainly closer in size to a modern class 8 truck than a small '50s type truck. While the cab is unchanged, it underwent several modifications to get the Road Champs' bus tires under the body. The '61 Impala was originally a stock Classic Metal Works model. Also shown in Photo Gallery 224.
