Hi Scott, yes they were called 5 quads and they were good trucks. I believe the civy equalivant was a K30 but these truck had thicker frame rails and cross members. The engines were 350's with 4 bolt mains, Rochester 4 barrel carbs and dual fuel tanks. Very strong trucks but were very thirsty for gasoline, hence the dual tanks.

A guy I watch on YouTube says I should put a 5.9 12 valve cummins in one. Not sure it depends if the 350 runs or not. I have a few photos of them things when they were in service ill see if I can ad them on here

Nice model. The real version had no chrome or tires that size but nice rendering just the same.
Thanks. Its also a short bed which sucks. Its got a gmc grill. The next one will be all camo with the big signal unit box. I would've added a brush guard but I couldnt find one anywhere in the same scale. But I knew t was gonna turn out good. I've got some photos of when I was building it. Ill post em up

Me and my grandpa were sitting out in my dads truck. I showed him a photo of a c.f. 76 chevy. He says they are great trucks he loves them (he's a farmer) he says there great farm trucks. I have his old 1984 chevy c30. I was thinking would one of those c.f. 5/4 tons make a great truck to convert to a dually and use as a beater? (by beater I mean toy,hunting truck,and tinkering truck)

Easier for me to get in and out of the truck, I installed a tilt steering wheel. I still have the original one.
I'd like to have one of those trucks. Are they a good truck to go camping with? I love the old round headlight chevys. I love the 5quads allot
