Chopped '29 Ford Pickup on '32 Chassis with Hemi!
Posted 23 April 2012 - 09:58 PM
I started this because it's very rare, practically never in fact, to see a '29 closed cab pickup mounted to a '32 frame. It has been done 100's of times with '29 roadster pickups but for some reason just gets over looked with a closed cab. I also wanted the truck to look useable so it was decided early on to leave the body in primer. I guess one could say that this would be perfect for a "shop truck".
Chassis: Revell '32 5-Window, front and rear suspension modified to sit considerably lower.
Wheels & Tires: Steel disc wheels / caps / rings from Revell '32 5-Window. Modelhaus T110 & T180 tires.

Intake modified to use 3 Rochester 2 bbl carbs, flame arrestor air scoops from 70's AMT '34 3-Window, pieced together over the frame headers, Parts By Parks pre-wired distributor, scratch-built coil and fuel log, leftover ignition wire for fuel hoses and fittings from Detail Master.

That is one cool old hot rod pickup Dennis! You've definitely got an eye for hot rod builds! I'm always impressed by them. You might want to paint those tail light lenses.
Thanks and yes, I do need to paint the taillights. I would have but when I went to dip my brush in the red I use for this it didn't seem to want to submerge into the paint. I'll grab a fresh bottle one of these days and touch them up.
