Now here is something I started almost 10 years ago and was forgotten in the back of the stash. I found it a few days ago.
My 1937 FordVette. The idea is to have a '37 Ford body and chassis with everything else Corvette. This is the '37 Ford model with the little trailer. It comes with the drivetrain already. I opened the doors and trunk, and plan to use either a '73 or C5 interiors. If I use the '73 it will be called the 3773 :)

wired and plumbed. Scratchbuilt rear shocks. Aluminum driveshaft.

Many shades of metallics. Full brackets. I HATE to see alternators in the air :)
The engine has lost some of the wing bolts. :lol:

complete fuel line and engine wiring

Here is a mock up.

I took a little break from cars and I'm currently working on some aircraft, but it shouldn't be long. What do you think?

Looks cool! Wonder if that chassis will fit under the Monogram '40 Ford pickup?
