Here is one I did a while ago. I removed the center engine compartment to make this H model into just a plow configuration, added a deck plate , couple of tool boxes, lights, and Chicago decals.

Nice custom! I like to see the Chicago-themed models, which are few and far between.

What's the reason,for the gap between engine,and cab?I can only think of even weights,on axles.

Normally, the H-Series trucks carry a snow blower or heavy duty hystat broom, so the gap is filled with a second powerplant.


Cheers,

That is how the basic cab and chassis is made. Chicago has some that are dedicated plow trucks, and not used for blowers and brooms. I have a small weight added under the diamond plate. Teeth
