That's essentially what it is, just made by Giant Vac. I put a new battery in it today, and after I figured out where the on switch was, it fired right up! It has a 4 cylinder Wisconsin, onl puts out 30 hp but man does it sound cool! Gonna take that small axle out later this week and throw a 3500 lb axle under it, then weld up the hitch.

I was thinking of just throwing the axle under it without springs? I want to keep it as low to the ground as I can.

That 1997 chevy went for $150.00 at the auction!!! too bad the frame on it was snapped in half! It had the 6.5 litre diesel in it too, would have mabe a nice plow truck as it sat!

I was thinking the same thing. Sell the motor and scrap it, but good luck.
