Wow, surprised this one was still going.
The wheels are from the Revell '32 Ford Roadster (this is what I'm playing with now). I had to use two kits since only the rears fit the Revell Rat Rod tires (sorta).
Jantrix it was a pleasure to meet you as well.
Thanks again for all the nice comments. Heading back to the bench.

Love stuff like this! Imagine the outcry if you did this in 1:1.
1/1 wouldn't be a big deal if you started with one of the VW powered replicas - I'm surprised it hasn't been done already. Come to think of it, a VW Bugatti in scale would be fun to try...

This is one beautiful, imaginative creation, I see more of the talented, quality building techniques that didn't sink in the first time I looked at this beautiful model. Oops, I almost forgot the paint, it's so Swell it's (almost) by Mattel!! (The rest of you Old Farts will get/remember that commercial reference)
I'm still thinking this kit would make a great start to some of the Model T Speedsters that are showing up lately. Makes me want to find one to use with some of those Stock '25 T kits that I've got Rat Holed. Now if I could just find a few more sets of decent Model A wheels and tires... maybe a set of Buffalo Wheels.... hmmm....
