DRIPTROIT 71

CF Pusher Freightliner

Recommended Posts

These trucks were used to push trucks over Donner pass. It is powered by a VT-903 and backed by a 5 speed Spicer. The big air tank is for the air starter. I cut the cab down to 72”.

Awesome outdoor shots. Makes the “snow” look more realistic with the real sun on it.  Just the right look all around, great weathering, nice display base. I like the rusty chipped finish on the exhaust outlet pipe coming off the engine. For its uniqueness, I’d have to say this is one of my favorite builds of yours.

Thanks Vince!! I had been wanting to build this one for a while now, but I also have about 100 others I’m wanting to build as well.😀

That is so awesome!  Great detail work.  So nice to know others that are a bit obsessed with this hobby.  Reflection of an era when folks worked hard risking their lives to get a job done!

Thanks! I agree, I guess that’s kind of why I like these old trucks!
