I managed to get this one done a few weeks ago, but Ive been sick so havent been able to post or do much of anything lately....
This is from a parts box 50 Chevy street machine, but I had the stock parts as well.... I started off using Rustoleum rusty primer.... Then using several different acrylic paints and a sponge with rubbing alcohol... This is the result... Transmission is from the parts box and the door is from a 32 Ford

Wow! Excellent job! Straight from the Barn :lol: ! Love it! :) :P :lol: .

This build also reminds me of the Star Trek Voyager Episode, where as the Voyager encounters this very same Truck in space.. Your model almost looks the same...
