The 1976 Crane Truck features a rotating crane cab on the bed of a three-axle truck. The crane boom elevates and extends, and the hook fits snuggly under the truck cab when the boom is stowed for travel. Outriggers are molded into the model base. Tinted windows and limited interior space hide the lack of an interior.
This Matchbox vehicle has come out in the following versions:
