    The King Hauler is a great platform for a Smokey and the Bandit build. You can make it look like a Peterbuilt or a Kenworth.

    There were 3 Tractors used in the movie two 1974 models and my favorite the 1973. There was also a 40 foot 1970's Hobbs trailer and the 48 foot Mural trailer.

    One of the "Snowmans" (Jerry Reed) Tractor was the 1973 50th Anniversary Kenworth (Gold Emblem) W900A Short Frame 350 Cummings with a 13 Speed Transmission and a 38 inch Sleeper. The paint code for each truck was coffee brown with gold trim the Trailer was a 1975 48 foot Hobbs Dry Van with a prop Thermal King Reefer.

    Are you going to build the Trans Am too??? I hope you do...

    Eastbound and Down


    Love the build, Love the movie, Love the Truck... keep up the good work.
