Anybody Interested In A New Body?

Here's what needs to happen. An accurate master pattern has to be made, and from there the fibreglass molds would be made. So, if anyone is interested in makeing a master pattern, or who would be interested in helping to pay a pattern maker, please contact MF privatly at "firstname.lastname@example.org" for more information. This is a private venture so please forward "business" questions to MF off site.

and so there's no complaining, i also mastered a 12" deck big block chevy. tunnel ram, splits, symetrical port heads, dry sump, belt drive cam.
if you guys are interested in this kind of project, let me know.
p.s for you blower guys. this motor started with a TDR block, TDR valve covers, and a by request TDR 14-71 blower. the rest is scratch.

Guys, what you see here is a perfect example of what it takes to create a new body. Its a bit of a process, but it can be done.

We can't expect these guys to project the cost of something new until there is a decision as to what is going to be produced. I agree with Dave's comment above.......its all about how seriously you take your model building.

I'd also like to see a 32 Ford Pickup Cab done in 1/8. If you guys do decide to do the 34 Ford car, the 32 Pickup cab can be easily converted to a 33/34 Cab with minimal modifications and the 32-34 1/2ton Pickups use car chassis'. The 32-34 cabs are almost identical aside from an aditional body reveal on the late cab and a different firewall.

Hi, Im Alan. Im new to this site and have just been looking through many of the threads and came across this thread. Im from Australia. I don't want this to sound like a silly idea but I have seen so many models of American muscle cars and I there I have no problem with. I really love them. Heck im currently building a customized 57 chev belair with opening doors etc. I have bought many many parts from TDR and absolutely love the quality of the parts and in the next couple of weeks I am intending in purchasing more parts. Im just putting out there as a possible idea for a new body maybe some Australian classic muscle car bodies like Holden Monaro's, Ford GTHO's, Holden Torana etc etc. I no its not exactly possible I just thought I could throw the idea around as here in Australia I can not find anyone who builds large scale aussie models. Im not one to whinge about things. Thanks Alan
