Here is the Lindberg 1934 Ford Pickup. It is most likely one of my favorite kits. I channeled it, put the engine from a 2008 Mustang GT500KR, and added wheels from an old nascar kit to it. Here are some pics:

Another one of my favorite models. Seems I like the old ones best.
Really good job on this one, I like it.

Cool model! The 34 pickup is one of my old favorites too. Just don't drive this one on the road though...that radiator grill looks like it will hit on a one inch bump! :D

Thanks guys, Terry the grill wouldn't be the only reason not to drive this truck. The rear axle is sitting on the frame rails so you would feel every one inch bump on the road :D :D Thanks again :D

I dig the thoroughly modern look of this build - breaks all the "traditional" rules. I especially like the motor and the underslung appearance of the chassis rails in front of the firewall. :D :D

Oh man. Is it too late to take those wheels off and sand that mold seam off the tires? All that good work and those seams stick out like a sore thumb.

I like it, but rat rod is a dirty word. I agree you should sand that seam off of the tires, other than that it looks good
cheers

Thanks Mike, it was your 34' that made me want to build one so badly. B)

I love the look, not even done with my 34, and you got me already wanting to build another.
