"custom designed and hand built to your specifications"

Paul, this truckmaker is small enough that they have the flexibility to build whatever you want.

I hope they kick some goals with this truck. Great little idea and it'll give some of the bigger manufacturers something to think about.

That's an attractive price, unlike some of the not much cheaper that new fleet prices I've been hearing for the other glider makers.

A good friend (and REO, Diamond T and Diamond Reo collector) paid this same guy like $500.00 to build him a model of one of his trucks. He paid the money, but never got  the  model. Makes me wonder if you would have to pre-pay for one these models,and take the chance of not getting it?  Al

The new glider kit may be well constructed,but it's overall styling just looks generic to me! The grille is atrocious! I believe they could have just reproduced the old 114 with the white cab! Just an opinion! They might have to fasten the diamond t emblem with some space age adhesive,as I feel it may try to jump off in shame!😁

Doesn't do the Diamond T image much good making it resemble an S model "binder!
