This hood and old slide scan is all that's left of a '40 Ford Sedan I entered in a local hobby shop contest in 1962 when I was 16. It won the Custom class and only lost best in show because it was said to be "unroadable". whatever that meant. It did scale out to be only 48" high after the chop, channel and section on 13" wheels! The placing surprised me as the Candy Green paint was a disaster with dark blobs all over it.

For years the 1st place trophy eluded me, but my last few completed models have brought them home.

The story is what was the winner of this contest. i beleieve it was a 2003 hobby outlook win it was youth autos 1st place i got a hobby town 20$ gift card from them. Story talked about how the truck got to be so destroyed. after the picture my then 1 year old brother knocked it off the table and it broke, i rebuilt it and never lost hope in building models. i was like 9 or 10 in the picture. my parents were so happy that when the issue came out they bought 10 copies for family and friends.

Outside of model club meeting contests ( of which I am no longer a member, and haven't been for some time ) , I haven't entered a model contest in years.

 

This is the last one I built as a 'contest' model . With exception to a few builds shown on these forum boards no one sees my builds outside of my household.

 

This car was built using the 'then new' AMT Daytona kit. requiring a lot of work to get the nose to look right . With a chassis from the also then new AMT 1969 GTX kit.

I agree! You should recreate this one using your original hood! What a wild kustom it is!

Hey Austin, it's a wooden base with a resin 'FJ' nose, painted in Alclad I think B)

Thanks for the comments on this with tiny photos!  I was a AMT '40 Coupe and I do have a kit I was thinking of recreating my build from 1962! I have one 13" reversed rim and tire also .. ehhe. I know I used Cushenbery's Matador as inspiration on this (headlights and fender scoop) but not sure a rebuild will ever happen. It would be fun!. :)
