This iconic Truck is really for all Technic fans of Expert Builder sets a wanna be a dream car to build. It could be build with one of the bigger sets available that time. The 8860 Car Chassis, 8859 Tractor and the 8848 Unimog. The Expert Builder series from Lego Technic always gave additional models based on combinations of sets.
- 8860 Car Chassis released in 1977
- 8859 Tractor released in 1981
- 8848 Power Truck released in 1981
- 8889 Idea book (http://peeron.com/scans/8889-1/)
Although only 4 pages were available showing a few pictures several tried to build it. In this era where digital building instructions can be made relatively easy I decided to give it it try.
