In Topic: MPC 1/20th Ford Van to be reissued..

08 January 2015 - 12:17 AM


You would need the Motor City Resin's 74 Econoline kit, and an MPC Ford Stunt Van for the engine, wheels, tires, suspension and exhaust. Then just have someone reszize the decals that come in the 1/20 kit.
Been seriously thinking about doing it!

I suspect he meant for Round2 to retool it in 1/25, not make your own. I'd buy one in 1/25, but 1/20 puts me off.

There was a feature on Big Al in an early '90s R&C.  From memory, it had a homemade multi disc clutch and direct drive through a large diameter (~12 inches) torque tube into a flipped Pontiac rearend.  The rear axle was mounted upside down to work with the reverse rotation of the Allison vs. an auto engine.

I went there to try to discover the origin of the T street rod in "With Six You Get Eggroll". Always liked that car. But no luck. Anyone know who built it? Just curious.


 Tom Booth.  The rolling chassis is on the cover of the August '66 Car Craft, not sure if it was featured in that issue though.

I added a single turbo to mine. There's not a lot of room; I had to thin down the interior tub to gain some clearance. fl15.jpg

Great shots!!!!    Thanks Maxx.....TIM 

They are, much appreciated.   They would be even better if Fotki didn't shrink everything to 500 pixels.
