1971 Ford 'C' Type Gelo Racing car transporter
With instructions.
About this creation
My second MOC for the Classic Race team group. This time a race car transporter for the Gelo racing team
Next on my list is building a Ferrari 512M to fit in it.


This truck is quite large and heavy for my standards. It's 58 studs long, 22 studs wide and 28 studs (not plates) high. The truck weights about 3 KG.

The truck has:
- Opening doors from the cabin
- Working V8 engine
- Adjustable cabin seats
- 4 storage bins
- Opening doors to the car area
- Working steering
- Removable roof
- Opening tailgate





















Everything opens on both sides. I also filled the storage bins with some things






Of course the rear ramp opens. The lower 'deck' will fit cars up to 20 studs wide, but with limited height, whereas the upper 'deck' fits car up to 18 studs wide that can be a little higher than the lower cars.
Also note the steering knob.





















Some photos of the transporter and the car together.











I also added the LDD file. I couldn't do everything about the cabin right (doors, mirrors, headlights, engine), but you'll be able to figure that out by yourself by using the photos.

it is really sad that you had to take the awesome transport truck apart :( but at least you have the lld file :), by the way you said your not sure if the logo one the back is good? it is!!! i don't know anyone else who put that much effort on a picture in a model (unless it was a mosaic) great job!!!

Quoting David Roberts Two quality MOCs in one. The details really make this model. The lettering and badge on the truck are impressive.
Thanks! Right now this truck is already taken apart, but I'm working on a other classic race car transporter. That one won't have closed bodywork, but it will be longer than this one so it can hold 7 cars! But it's going to take a while: on the moment I only have the cabin done.....

Yes, I mean the horse! In this size it's like sprite design on a C64, a really tough job! But the lettering is cool, too!

How did I miss this one? It's awesome! The Ford van is instantly recognizable and you've added a lot of nice details. The stuff in the top box is really cool! My favourite detail is the Ferrari logo mosaic. It really looks great. Great job! :-))

This simply fantastic! One of the best transporters that I've seen in the group so far. The overall feel if it is really nice and the words and Ferrari emblem are very well recreated. And of course the opening functions and interior details are great too! :)

Very cool! You made the shape of the cabin very well and the colours are also fantastic. It absolutely brings the feeling of the old races of the 1970s. Great job!

The best transporter I've seen so far! I think the transporter is a bit on the short side here, but it does give it that unique stubby shape which i like. The lettering and stripes on the side are fantastic! 5/5 :D

I agree with the others - the best transporter in the group, and therefore probably the best on MOCpages. I could look at this for hours... the lettering and the Ferrari badge are very nicely done.

This is a fantastic moc!. What a great continuation on the transporter truck saga in the group, I don't see anything one could improve, and more, somehow I like your full studded bodywork the best. Great great great!

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera Stunning work Thomas! I love this! What do you think?
I can't wait to see your transporter, so if I where you I would post that one first and after that build/upload the car! :-)

Quoting George G. Superb work Thomas! And hopefully it won't be too long until I can get my transported done too ;)
Thanks!!! I can't wait to see your transporter completed!! I am sure it's going to be a beautiful one!

Quoting Ape Fight This is INCREDIBLE! Firstly the shape and details are really accurate (and I love the full-stud bodywork) - but lots of people can do that. What you've managed is to team the detailed looks with great functionality. The opening storage areas for example, are the neatest I've seen on anyone's transporter so far. This is an exceptional build, amongst the best on MOCpages. 10/10 : )
Quoting Ape Fight Back for a second look. Yup, this is my favourite Transporter so far : )
Thanks!! I must say that i am very proud of this truck, but I don't know if it's my favorite? I think the other transporters are at least as good as mine. But anyway I am really, really happy to hear that you like it so much!! :-)

Pretty good! I'm impressed by the mosaics and lettering (I'm horrible at those). Somehow seems squashed though. :) Needs better pictures. ~LB Jr.

This is fantastic! It looks just like the real thing, too. Nice details, and I really like the "studded" approach. Now all you need is a 512M!

Thomas this is fantastic. The studded snot bodywork is beautiful and the logos are fabulous A real treat for a Lego purist like me. Like mine this must be quite light for its size. Excellent all around job and a real asset to the group. These transporters are a challenge to build and you have done a marvellous job. Congrats :)

Stunning work Thomas! I love this! The studded look really suits it and all the details you crammed in are marvelous. It kind of reminds me of a modified removals lorry. Which is basically what it is. Can't wait to see the 512 to go in it! I've very nearly finished my new transporter, just a few last details to do, it looks menacing :-) I think I might build a car for it before I post it. What do you think?
