Here you can see,
the separate chassis (black) on the Ertl model.

It would be easy to shorten the body and fender castings,
to made a flat bed or dump body to add behind the cab.

Thanks for following along.

Regards, Dave L.

Another nice feature of this model,
is the opening rear doors with a load in view.

The coin slot and the opening hatch
to empty the bank are here.

An unusual spotting feature of the Graham Brothers trucks,
was the backing plate behind the rear wheels.

It is included on the Ertl model.
I doubt they were chromed on the real trucks.

Ertl's 1927 Graham Brothers truck
would look great on a large scale layout.

They are plentiful on Ebay right now.
I saw one listed at $3 plus shipping yesterday.

Regards, Dave L.

Graham Brothers had a pickup version of the truck.

The metal turned out to be very hard to cut with hand tools.
Here is the project underway.

I'm getting ready to prime and paint this Ertl 1920 International truck.
I lost some of the factory paint trying to clean away sticker adhesive.

Weather is hot and humid here in PA,
so I'll wait for better weather to paint out on the deck.

I had to file away some flash around the windows.
Still deciding on a final color.

The body is riveted to the fenders,
so I'll have to paint the whole vehicle the final color.

Regards, Dave L.

Ertl's 1912 Ford van has a body that comes off
with one screw, leaving a hood, fenders, and chassis.

Because there is no rear screw to hold the parts together,
I use Aleene's Tacky Glue to keep them attached.

I still need to work on rear beds.

Regards, Dave L.

Here's a body style I'd like to put on one of these 1912 chassis.
