There was a Dannon Yoghurt promo style delivery truck that is a little like that, but they go for pretty big coin. That's about it. Maybe just make it out of sheet plastic, put it on a S-10 frame maybe?

I remember Jimmy Flintstone or no wait I think it was actually a Testors resin kit from a couple years ago. It was an old school ice cream truck from like the 50's & remember thinking of making the Cheech & Chong "Nice Dreams" truck out of it.

You could do the scratchbuild thing based off the Tamiya Astro Van too, or even maybe that Chevy Custom Van reissue kit available now. Cut from the cab & scratch it

the thing is basically a box, i thought about doing it for a while, finding one and taking some measurements. Lights are easy, just raid the parts box or make some out of plastic. Did you see that post in post your rides i think? good reference material. That testor's model is an old Divco truck, but Flintstone resin is basically a big resin brick. I think there was an old Divco promo too, and Ron Cash resin and All American resin may have made one, but guess what, those effers went out of business.

hmm... I think the easiest thing to do would be to get a Fed Ex delivery truck thing, and cut that to size, and put it on like a s 10 chassis...Just my opinion...

here is a pic of a 1/43 diecast fed ex truck.
i think that would wrok pretty good, but i think you would probably want it in 1/24th scale eh 66pontiac?[/b][/quote]

but the bad thing is that on the 1/43 scale you cant put HH rims on it or HH chassis or anything really,or it might be as big as a 1/24 scale car because its big,no?
