I built this because I just love heavy duty trucks of the 50's. I was inspired to build this by a row of old construction trucks from the 1950's and 60's I saw rotting away by the edge of the woods on someone's property. I dreamed of someday buying one of those trucks and restoring it. But I don't have the money to do that and I won't for a while so I figured I'd build one out of LEGOs. Though I wanted it to have a dumping bed, I didn't have enough of the right colored pieces, so I kinda took the lazy way out and built a flatbed.
The truck has a trailer hitch, dual exhaust stacks, and interchangeable front bumpers. I also added details like the radiator cap, a light on top of the cab, and a chain on one of the front bumpers. I designed this to be a classic looking truck.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this. I'd appreciate your support 🚛
