Groovy Grader
Hopped-Up Heavy Duty Earth Mover

  • Original year: 1971
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

Need a drag strip in a hurry? Here's your baby! This is gotta be the world's fastest road grader. The old diesel engine was ripped out and a big blown rat motor was stuffed into the chopped customized grader body. Four giant dual slicks are independently suspended on the rear axles. With a touch of that vintage look, a pair of antique side lamps are mounted up front for night work, and the big chrome scraper blade is just looking for hills to level.

Dave's comments:

All public works departments should have a fleet of these....Another kit I built as a kid. Just rebuilt the reissue in 1998. Tom extended the road construction theme even further with his Unreal Roller in 1971.
