40 Ford tractor and trailer, club build #3
Posted 06 October 2012 - 09:38 AM
I cut the fenders from the front of the 40 and added a 1/8" strip to widen the a scale 3".
I cut the chassis down by 1/2" to tractor length and cast some copies of the wheels and tires.
the 40 engine doesn't have any stock parts so they were pirated from a 37 pickup, the six was cut off and the flathead added on.
the doors were sanded flat and sheet stock added to look like a stock door panel, solder window crank and a 37 door handle.
stock tail lights.
the trailer is a glue bomb I got from my brother in law.
a little weathering and it's good to go.

Yeah, every one wants 40's to go on the trailer, I was also thinking about it as a pick up vehicle for a rod shop to bring in projects and take finished cars to shows.

Oh yeah, I thought I'd add a little something to make it interesting.
The truck is already in Ocala so I won't have pics of the truck loaded until tomorrow.
