Default need help tracking down radio shack 4x4

hi guys and girls,
basically after searching the internet i found this site. I am looking for a radio shack big wheel 4x4. My father recently passed away and it was the first rc i ever got that he purchased for me, it must have been 1991 or 1992 at the time. i found someone in ontario that was selling it but the add was from april and i presume its gone, if you have one or know someone who has one please let me know, its a hunt that i hope ends sooner than later, here is the only picture i could find of it!

it took 6aa and 1 9v in the bottom, had a high and low gear, had a blower in the front, was black, lol i know its kinda weak but its what i recall.

Can't really make out exactly what this RC looks like but I saw this on a local craigslist ad. No mention of Radio Shack but thought I would post it.

I have that exact truck! I bought it about 6 years ago for 10 bucks still in the original box! It dosen't have dual motors but it is 4wd. I also have one similar to the one in the last pic except it has 2 air cleaners on top of the blower instead of the scoop.. That one I got on my 8th birthday way back when!
By the way, I'm new to this site and joined just because I was looking on info on that exact truck..
