Hard Hat Hauler
The Ultimate Political Machine

  • Original year: 1971
  • Company: MPC
  • Scale: 1/20
  • Designer: Harry Bradley

It's the MPC nomination for the next presidential Limousine...the perfect vehicle for left, right or center of the road!! Custom touches for the ultimate political machine include: Lunch bucket gas tank (with room for servings of crow and humble pie,) political guiding lights, campaign fund scoop, left and right wing headers, ecological disaster stacks, union made tires, power grabbing slicks, operating fork lift (simulates popularity polls,) chromed hard hat, "hard running" hub caps with Agnew, Reagan, Muskie and Kennedy decals, grass roots supports, coalition blowers, custom workingman's interior (sorry, no senate seat.)

Dave's comments:

A real fun-time rod with this wacky political and union theme that was a real rod! This original kit is sealed. Look at those decals on the hubcaps. How did MPC know Reagan was going to be a star back in 1969--70? Another 1/20th scale model, it was reissued by AMT along with the Popcorn Wagon in 1998. However, this reissue completely lost the political theme and replaced the candidate hub decals with regular mags--a huge disappointment. Take a look for yourself.
