This is my original chevy badged clodbuster , had it a few months now . Bought it off the bay - had seen only light use with only a little dirt and rusty springs . Hope to make it a show piece so have replaced most of the chrome parts with light bar to replace and some detail painting to do .
** UPDATE ** see the latest pictures below... this truck is nearly a shelf queen... virtually rebuilt apart from the shell but that is in good enough condition for a shelfer. Not a great deal to replace , just the spot covers and daylighter decals and a bit of detailing .Looking really good now very pleased .Old chassis and a few spares have become a runner with a lexan body . (see showroom for pics)



Looks good with the new chrome Shell is in great shape - very lt work required That chevy grill really makes this truck And the tailgate - superb looks these trucks have New springs to replace old - Nearly done Just detailing to do and the odd part **UPDATE** now has complete new chassis cost a small fortune in new parts alot came from bargain bundles on the bay apart from new spots.. a shelfer is born

Was a real good deal... paid 130 GBP that included postage and came with all radio eqpt and 2 running batteries . Real nice when one turns up like this.

Fantastic clod . I have one on it's way . Sadly not as good as this , but it will be a good runner . So have you ever run one of these old beasts ?. Nice and shiny & blingly .

matman buddy never run this one since it was re-built but did have a runner and they are quirky to say the least- but fun. I was sad to sell that one but at the time needed the cash so it had to go, would love one to run especially on the beach as i reckon that would be superb but alas i now don't have the room for two of these brutes lol. Have fun with yours buddy but keep an eye on those plastic gearbox things (part no evades me) they are fragile, plus if it has not got them already the brace plates for the chassis as the ball joints on the chassis for connecting the long black arms are weak in the chassis without strengthening plates.
