Very nice, the cool thing about those is there is always someone parting one out on ebay so it should be easy to find parts on there.

That is so cool!
I parted out a xtra parts truck [and a coupl'a Bruisers] over the last few years 'cept the body[s] which I sold recently.I bought my BB 15+ yrs ago as a built shelf queen from a hobby shop that was closing somewhere on I-45 North of Houston Tx,I only stopped to get gas and saw the sign.I also picked up a spare complete chassis w/wheels and tires at a Fleamarket in Canton Tx for like $10[!] 5yrs ago,it was hard to keep a straight face and not run away like a MADMAN when the money changed hands.

You can get brand new sand paddle tires for it now too, thanks to the Grasshopper re-re. Here's a link to the tires on Tower.

Not the same tires,the BB's sand paddles are bigger than the Ghopper/Hornet paddles.I know the BB uses the same size tires as the original Wild Willy's,I owned both at one time.If he can't find any tire's he might have to switch up to 2.2's,might check with RC4WD for rims or rim adapters.It wont be original but it will be a rolling truck.

Here's a old pic of my old long gone Bruiser wearin' a Blazin Blazer body.I'm with Lunchboxer on hoping Tamiya would re-re the BB's body.
