AMT's '39 Ford Sedan in Tamiya's French Blue with a resin hood scoop, removed front bumper and running boards, plug wires, valve stems, BMF, enlarged rear wheel openings, raised rear suspension approx. 3 scale inches, drivers seat belt, helmet,stock front axle.


If I replace the slicks with street tires, this sedan is street legal with headlights, tail lights, mufflers, and license plate as in the begining the "gas" class was made up of street driven hot rods that were raced on weekends.

Looks good and the color is a standout on that body style.

I like the 39 Ford a lot!!!   I have said it many times before .... I like the old kits and you have proven again that with some attention to detail you can turn out a quality piece of work from a vintage kit!!!    Nice work!!
