Couldn't find a pic of it. Last and only time I personally saw it, it was on a back lot at Universal studios many years ago.

I did come across this however. Makes me wonder if they made a model of Ricks Power Wagon?

I know this is an ancient topic but look what I found online.

Its an old shot of Ricks truck on the Universal Studios lot. I also found out they used 2 trucks on the show,one was an actual 79 "Macho" Power Wagon rare longbed edition and the stunt truck that usually didn't have lights on the rollbars was actually an 81-93 style with a 72-80 bed on it painted up like a Macho

Here's a recent shot of the true '79.

They never made a model kit of the truck, but a few of us have scratchbuilt our own.
Here's a photo of mine:


Here's a link to my photobucket with photos of some of my other work.
Thanks for looking.

Seems there was more than one chase scene where they were flat out getting it, I wonder if they had more than one like General Lee.
