Franklin Tech students hope to transform Ford truck into a Radio Flyer Wagon in 13 weeks

Updated:

Collision repair students at Franklin Tech Center in Joplin are transforming a 1995 Ford Ranger extended cab pickup into a huge, drivable, Radio Flyer Wagon.  

"There is really no one around here that has one - we wanted to do something that nobody else had, we saw one on YouTube where an older man had made, we thought no one else has one around here like that," says student Aaron Anderson.

The goal is to put the large Radio Flyer Wagon in some of the local Christmas parades.  That gives them about 13 weeks to finish.
