This is my AMT '32 Ford from a CBP.  When the V8 Ford was first introduced in 1932 the previous 4 cylinder engine often had more HP than the V8 because of hot rodders. That and the resent introduction of the Rat Roaster is why I am calling this the Flathead Roaster.  This is based on a '50's hot rod.  My inspiration came from a photo in a book called Hot Rods.  Modifications include a hot rod 4 cylinder with a split exhaust manifold and twin carburetors,  '40 Ford dropped front axle with pose-able steering,     open trunk with tools, open cowl vent, bobbed rear fenders and Testors Mystic Emerald paint.DSC04578_zpsb7339de3.jpgDSC04576_zps6418220d.jpgDSC04575_zps6cf6f615.jpgDSC04574_zps44f61424.jpgDSC04569_zps53b009ad.jpg

Very nice hot rod. You don't see those hot rodded 4's in scale rods very often.

Very original and well executed take on the AMT Deuce roadster. I don't I've ever seen anything quite like it. Lots of nice details, too. Bravo! :)

Awesome build! Nice to see a 4 banger done up right. Mystic Emerald is one of my favorite shades. Looks great on this.

Nice!! Very creative version of an old favorite! The hopped up 4 banger is a cool idea. The color is a favorite of mine, and just seems right for a hot rod like this. Great work!
