    Hi guys, The Walmarts around me dont have them and i was wondering if someone could help me out and get me a few of them if there Walmart is still carrying them.

    It doesnt matter which cab models nor does the color matter. Im going to be building a bunch of Jacob Model Resin Cab kits and i need the parts from the Malibu trucks to finish off the Resin Kits. Not all of them will be used for parts but a few of them will.

    If anyone could help me out here, I would send you a USPS money order for them and pay for shipping of coarse. Anyone help me out here?

    Thanks in advance guys :mrgreen:

    There are 9 of the Malibu trucks at my Wal-Mart, but I didn't buy them because they are ALL the single rear axle Volvo and Mercedes trucks. If you want them let me know and I'll pick them up Thursday, i'm sure they'll be there, they've been there for a couple months now. The Fords and Peterbilts sell pretty fast.

    Thanks for checking Dave.

    I dont want the Mercedes ones, but are the Volvo ones the cab overs or are they conventional style like American trucks or the ones that are overseas?

    No problem. If I see any conventionals, I'll grab em. If you don't still want them I could prolly use 'em too.

    Good news, Josh. I found ONE...bad news, one of the rear wheels fell off, but it's still in the box, easily glued back on...good news is I took it up to the service desk and they discounted it down to $2.50 from the retail price of $3.97 :thumb:

    PM me with your address and I will send it your way....
