First Gear (#60-0439) 1/64 Scale
Western Distributing - Peterbilt Model 351 with 63" Sleeper and Vintage 40' Refrigerated Trailer
First Gear has teamed up again with Denver, CO. based Western Distributing Transportation Corporation (WDTC) to offer this limited edition 1:64th scale Peterbilt Model 351 Tractor with vintage 40' Refrigerated Trailer. This model celebrates a unique Western Distributing fleet truck from years back. Driven by one of the most senior driver's at WDTC, Mr. Frank Piroddi . Frank has been working at WDTC since 1975, 43 years of service to date and is currently driving, according to Frank his last truck, truck # 777 for good luck. Truck # 777, coincidently, was the tractor number of his very first truck too.
Frank's handle for his first truck was the "Italian Stallion" as graphically represented on the side of the tractor's sleeper. The "Fly Like an Eagle" graphic, emblazoned on the air deflector, was added later per a request, as Frank was known for his speed. He used to pick up WDTC's hardest/most complicated wine mixers in California and still holds the record at fourteen pickups of wine in California in one day!
