A small minifig scale towcar with tilting crane. In the style of the late '80s and early '90s.
About this creation

The piececount of this car, minifig excluded, is 78. Compared to official Lego towcars and towtrucks of the '80s and '90s of similar size that's a tad high. It can slimmed down to more agreeable 65, but that's at the cost of the tilting action, offset wheels plates, tools and less stuff under the hood.

The crane hinges on a pair of old fashioned hingeplates. It has just enough clearance under the roof. I also love those old minifig tools.

The hood hinges on a 4L Lightsaber bar.

I like to think a little towcar like this needs a serious engine. So instead of more common engine bay of 1x2, I choose a 2x2. This causes that protruding nose, which is camouflaged by the 1x1 sloped headlights.

Total built time was roughly 30 minutes.
