Mobil Ford F-100 Tow Truck - By Jim Goodin

Like we explained in Photo Gallery 91, this little truck started as a Trident Chevy tow truck. This view gives a better perspective on the wrecker body. Jim modified the Trident frame to accept the 1966 Ford F-100 cab from the Walthers pickup and then added the cable, mirrors, a rotary beacon, light truck disk wheels (including duals on the back), a push bumper and other details. The unit was painted and finished with Mobil Oil decals from Microscale.
