I decided to build Eddie Munster a Hearse ..eerr C-Cab for his own.
Since building the Dragula,I went looking for a new project when I
spotted the Chuck Miller's Fire Truck.
Our own Chuck Most did a review on it. LINK.http://www.modelcars...=1
First off ..the mods.
Frame Z'ed,body sliced,axles swaped from left over AMT 32 Vicky
,bench seat w/split back,rear doors,Buick Nailhead engine,fenders from
Vicky widened and soon to be bobbed,skull shifter from Warhammer stash
(thanks Ed Shaver).Still undecided on grill..
Going for a Cobolt Blue paint and silver scallops.

Looks good with fenders and those wheels. Appearance wise it's beat a Nailhead, too. B)

Thanks Chuck..the mill is still up in the air.
I'm debating between a full race Flattie
and the Nailhead.Or maybe a Blown Ford
full race engine or ...

55K for that? I need to contact the buyer to see if he's interested in a bridge.

A little update..
Made a split bench from a T-bucket bench and added storage bags
to the backs.Then I added a stair/wheelie bar and a rear pan.
I don't care for the oval single windshield..plus I also section the body.
So I made a new windshield frame and a new dash.
Then I added a Coffin sky light.

Let me introduce you to Spot Jr.
He's a little croc from my parts stash..don't know what kit he's from
but I like the "I'm from parts unknown" rep..LOL
I also finished the Buick Nailhead...added a crossflow water pipe and an alternator w/bracket.
The headers are from the new 32 Ford and the lakes are modified from the 53 Ford truck.
