Freightliner FL80 Utility Service Truck With Altec Boom & Bucket - By Jim Groeneweg

Jim Groeneweg started with a Boley International 7600 Altec utility bucket truck chassis for this truck. Jim discarded the International cab and a Freightliner FL80 cab was installed on the chassis along with A-Line two hole disc wheels and scratchbuilt mirrors and exhaust stack added. Automotive paint was matched to the Boley paint and applied to the unit then the box/body was clear-coated along with the cab.
