1934 Walter Snow Fighter - By Chester Fesmire

This is model of a 1934 Walter Snow Fighter by Chester Fesmire. Chester admits he doesn't know much about the prototype but as he was measuring and photographing it at a local truck show an old timer remarked that it was the most difficult vehicle he ever drove because of the unique shift pattern. Chester took a Wiking Bussing cab & chassis and narrowed and shortened the hood and added the scratch built plow apparatus to the front. The 'ballast box' on the back (also Wiking) has a block of concrete in it.
