On my 166th post is a comparison on late 60's Ford truck by M2 and Greenlight.

On the left is the Greenlight ‘68 Ford F100 STANDARD OIL from the Running on Empty series 3 and on the right is the M2 Ford 1969 F-100 custom 4x4, Good Year and comes as a model kit.

Both were made as 4x4 and while Greenlight has a short bed, M2 made theirs long.

Now let’s take a look at their opening features.

Greenlight probably uses the same stock chassis and added height adjusted axles to simulate a 4x4. I heard some people had complained that the chassis does not represent a true 4x4 but for a 1/64 I think most people rarely pay attention to the chassis detail nor display their car upside down.

M2 uses a different chassis than those used on their stock height which incorporates the height adjusted axles molded with the chassis. However there is a lack of realistic detail on it.

I do love the ‘Good Year’ lettering on the tires but here is where M2 missed the mark. As you can see there are no cover on the wheel wells under the bed so you can see thru it.

Greenlight on the other hand does not have a gap. Also there is a bit of weathering on this truck as well.

Overall both trucks have their charm.
