I want to build the gasoline trailer from the "DUEL" movie. I have seen the build from scale auto but there are no dimensions on the actual shape of the tank. It is easily an ellipse of sorts. Can anyone direct me to a cross section diagram of a 1940's style Fruehauf Tanker. It will be one with a rounded nose and slanted back. Also used by U. S. Army as a M967.

Have heaps of info on M131 & M969 but only little bits on the M967 - Main differences are in the onboard pumping systems (tank unit remains the same).

This should get ya pointed in the right direction.
