SR-71 Rapid Tool Express

SR-71 Rapid Tool Express

There have been many times in U.S. History where American creativity and ingenuity have produced things that have raised the bar to an incredibly high standard. The creation of the SR-71 Blackbird spy plane was one of those times. Never shot down… never captured… never equaled, the SR-71 has come to represent American excellence at its best, and the inspiration to one of Stacey David’s most unique projects: The SR-71 Rapid Tool Express.
Linked with the 100th anniversary of Cornwell Tools, the SR-71 will not only be the world's fastest tool delivery truck, but It is also being built with products and parts that show that same level of excellence found in the Blackbird and Cornwell Tools.
