It was one of my favorite sets back then and it came out along with one of the best Town sets wave TLG had ever released. Click here for the Town sets. Why memorable set you ask?
The shape, the size Little difficult to remember the original price. Good old Legoland boxes. One minor difference when it comes to the box is that the phrase “Town System” and the small age recommendation frame was never used on the sets that were imported to Greece.
The instructions are just a two paged long piece of paper. A common thing for a set with this size back then. Although a little faded, -it is 21 years old after all- it still is a nice minifig. The typical classic head, red legs, a red cap and a very nice torso. This minifig appears only in this set. The torso on the other hand is present in 10 more sets. Check the sets here! This vehicle was quite an innovation back then due to its size, height, and of course width.
Although that the main body is a 4-wide pick-up truck, the whole structure measures almost 9! Nothing too fancy here. Here is the cause of the mutation! A small pick-up truck for agricultural purposes yesterday, a massive 4-wheel frightener tomorrow! There are four wheels in each side, connected together with a technic axle, making the total of 8 wheels.
As you can see, the left pair has the exhaust attached on it and also has one 2×4 plate more. This is for the vehicle to lean a little forward for a more aggressive look. The height of the vehicle is exactly what it should be for a truck of this style. A small climb on the tires is needed in order to get in. See the slight lean forward!
From here you can clearly see the wideness in all its glory.
The two small pipes popping out from the front are part of the engine. I really like the contrast between the main body and the way the wheels are attached on it. It gives the feeling of an actual customized -not Legowise- car.

Lego set 6675 Town Road and trail 4×4
This is what a minifig sees. You can see that it hardly fits the road! Being 9 studs wide isn’t exactly the most city-friendly vehicle! You can reach high speeds with your Porsche, you can carry heavy things with your Wind Turbine Transporter. What exactly can you do with this instructtions Gee, what a show-off I had always considered the Container Stacker as the “beast” instrutcions my collection of vehicles due to its size and strange looks.
I guess the definition of big and monstrous has changed after 20 years comparing the two sets. This picture is in a small catalogue I have the one that folds in four. You can see the truck trying to move on the road.
Btw, this is one of my favorite town scenes! This set is still in my all-time favorites when it comes to classic town vehicles. Although that it’s not the typical classic town car, it still has this ’80s touch we all loved. Standing out from the rest of the cars but not being extremely huge is a big advantage for me. I think that TLG’s concept wasn’t just a monster truck causing chaos but considering that the Stunt ‘Copter N’ Truck which was also released the same year had the same door pattern, TLG probably wanted to create a fleet of special duty vehicles.
The only change I would love to see is to have suspensions on the wheels. That would have been an excellent addition! What else can you ask for? Only thing that could have been added is suspensions. The 8 wheels and the doors iinstructions the highlights for me.
Thanks ‘Zorbas’ for another review, cool set For it’s time a 9 wide wheel base, even these days it’s not that common up to 8 wide iswhich make this a very nice 80’s monster truck.
This is a cool set, I picked one up on eBay a few years ago. Its heavily modified from original though. I don’t like the doubled up tires.
I’ve wanted this set for a while now but haven’t been instrjctions to find a good deal on it. I have the special doors though so maybe I could just try to get the other parts individually. As you said, it could use some actual suspension. There were the red suspension parts that were used on a few City sets back then, which might work here if there was a way to connect these wheels to them. I own almost every little car from to about but this was one of the more special ones, I had endless fun with it in the late eighties.
Especially with those eight big wheels. I always onstructions the way Instrructions put on the 1×3 plate for the exhaust on a half stud offset, something that was rarely done in those days. One small thing though: You forgot to include the spanner in your lovely review, it can be seen if you take a closer look at the back of the vehicle on the box-art.
I don’t think it’s even mentioned in the instructions. What a beautiful set. I always wanted that set, just because of the colour scheme, as a kid, I just it! Shame I never got it, it would look soooo nice next to my Stunt ‘copter N’ Truck.
I always thought them to be part of the same daredevil “stunt team”. What a great set. I’ve never seen this before, but now it’s a favourite. Thanks for the review. I was able to scratch this off my wanted list a few years back.
I love classic 4 wides. Do you also own the set that camera is from or did you just assemble it using pieces you had on hand? That TV van was one of my first sets. I only have about half the pieces to it, I need to BL some of the missing ones so I can reassemble it.
I remember looking at the catalog and wanting this set, but it came out after my active kid town collecting days I had moved on into castle by this time. I was lucky enough to have two copies of an almost identical set,as a kid. Even more lucky, I instructilns have them today.

I played with these incessantly over 20 years ago and they still look great in my City today. My kids love them too! Both sets have stood the test of time, and are truly outstanding!
I too had this set as a child and bought another 2nd hand copy not too long ago.
It’s probably one of the best classic cars with a four-wide body they made. Looking back at that catalogue I’d have to say that most city sets back then were brilliant. The parts I loved most were the tyres. There weren’t many sets back then where you’d get 8 of those for as little money. Now you made me want one Check that box pic again. Yeah, I know it looks discounted, but still. Only when I read your post I remembered that a spanner was also included.
Thanks for the reminder! This took me back to my childhood I own that set and it was also one of my favorites during my childhood.
I know what you mean Dennimator. I ‘ve seen the price tag but I couldn’t rely on it since I had no evidence of the price being the original one or even the release price. That’s why I didn’t put it in the data list. Thanks for the point though.
