Interesting how the tractor is an International, as ABF never had any for line power.  I'd still get it though.  Too bad it's an arm and a leg. :-(
The foot turned to the horse, the horse to the carriage, the carriage to the train, and the train to the truck.

Several arms and legs, actually. :roll: What people are willing to pay for something like this never ceases to amaze me, even though I know they're next to impossible to find. Don't get me wrong, I'd add it to my collection in a heartbeat, but not at this price.

Hello guys,

Those "prices" for "just" a model is in my eyes only "USURY" and NOTHING ELSE!!!!!
I "KNOW" they are "rare", but you can't "tell" me that those models are that price "worth"!!!!!
That one is now by about 320,-!!!!!
That is "more" money than many people "earn" in a week, even for people in Germany who "lives" from "social money"  more than the whole month!!!!!
We have the same with "TEKNO-models" in Holland!!!!!
They have fantastic models in their collection (1/50-scale) but "paying" 599,- (almost US$900,-!!!!!)for "just" one modell is IMO a big way out of normal "relations"!!!!!
I "know" I am crazy (in a special kind of way) with my big collection, but my "limit/pain-limit" is maximum 250,- for just "one" model!!!!!
I bought 6 fantastic old and "rare version's/livery's" from Lion-toys (1/50-scale), all "DAF'S", for that price last friday!!!!!
I really "love" my models, but even I "have" a "limit"!!!!!
They are "just" models and you can't "live" from them and you wouldn't "die" either by "not having" them!!!!!
Greetings from Germany,

I saw an ABF a few year's back for 300.00 or so and I said that was too much, and now 500.00. I'm a collecter Ive got about 70 diecast's but I won't be adding that ABF. LOL

If i'm reading this stuff right it's $500 for a tractor (International) that ABF never had in their fleet AFAIK?  :?  Wait a few more months & you should be able to pick up a real Mack CH for a few bucks more on Truck Trader. :lol:

It's an International tractor. Because that's the only daycab truck DCP had at the time. I know of another model that was made from an International and the real truck is a T-600. Oh well.
