Stunt Double Die Cast
THE STUNT DOUBLE
One of the most iconic Square body GM trucks of all time is undoubtedly the one from the Fall Guy TV series. The show starred Lee Majors and was about a stunt man/ bounty hunter and his adventures. But the real “star” was the high-flying stunts of that brown and tan truck. The TV truck originally was an early 80’s GMC 4x4 long bed, but since they tore up about 3 trucks per show, it was constantly changing from GMC to Chevy, to longbed, to short bed, etc. over the seasons. Because of this, the Fall Guy truck quickly became the “tough guy” representation of any square body GM truck.
“With the renewed popularity of the GM square body trucks today, I wanted to build something special to recognize such a great design and remind everyone how tough these trucks were back in the day. So, I hatched the idea to build a Stunt Double for the legendary Fall Guy truck! In true stunt double fashion, the STUNT DOUBLE truck is not meant to be a perfect replica of the Fall Guy truck, instead it’s a truck that looks the part and is capable of coming in and doing the heavy stunts in place of the “star”. Just like a real stunt man, or woman does. This allowed me to build a more modern truck, using some of the best aftermarket parts available, but still keep the classic look. Starting with an 86 long bed Chevy K2500 4x4, I packed in over 500hp, upgraded the suspension and axles, laid out a custom interior, and made sure I added modern brakes and A/C and tons of other cool things. Built this way, the STUNT DOUBLE is not only capable of doing the hard stunts, but it’s also tough enough to drive home in one piece afterward…... and THAT is the main goal for any professional stunt man, or stunt double!”
Now you can own a smaller version of the truck Stacey built on GEARZ! Done in 1/64th size by the guys at ACME, exclusively for GEARZ, this highly detailed truck not only has the look of the STUNT DOUBLE, but is tough enough to beat on too! It’s the perfect addition to any diecast collection when you need to jump things and create mayhem!
