More or less scratch built . This is a model of the 1956 L'Universalle van that was built by the G M C Truck and coach division for the 1956 Motorama . This van nearly went into production . Had it not been for a major alteration that G M accounting would NOT approve , the distributor interfered with the bottom of the seat !

Would love to see/ hear how you lowered it. I'm working on this exact kit at the moment and wanting to drop it. Any help would really be great if you're up to it. Van looks amazing. Awesome weathering!!

Just remembered I had this one lurking in my unfinished project pile.  Jimmy Flintstone resin body that is replicating a van of a friend from back around 1976. The van was brush painted and had wood bumpers.

Can I ask what you built this  from? I'm looking to do a Chevy Grumman Step Van and this looks similar, though I suspect it may be all scratch built.  It does look fantastic!

 

Yes, it's scratch built. see here: http://smg.photobuck...n?sort=3&page=1

 

Thanks for the kind words!

Did this one back in April.   A special thanks to Dwayne for hooking me up with parts that were missing so I could make it almost box stock. And there was another member that pointed me into the right direction the plans but I forgot his name thanks any way. I say almost because it came with one 3 types of sirens that (in my openon) did not look good together, so on Dwayne suggestion I found a 2nd big siren off a cop out on ebay, that had to be modified just a little so they match, then  put some post on both so they would fit in the existing wholes.

     I moved the hose, prayer, thinging to the back along with the gauge panel and moved the later up. It made more since to me. The back windows didn't come close to fitting so I justified leaving them out with

 the thought that all that heat and fumes had to go some where. I dropped the front a scale 3 inch's into the weeds only to find out that was not conceders box stock, whoops. And lastly put a 9 where there was nothing but a whole up front.

Tom,

 

Your vans are incredible!  I remember you posted the green Ford Econoline in another thread a while ago.

 

Every last detail down to the spare tire in the back of the Chevy is spot on.  I had to go back and look at the pictures a few times to make sure they were models.  

 

BTW, what paint/color(s) did you use on the green Ford Econoline?

 

Mike.

This model just has "FUN" written all over it.  I am sure it brought you many hours of joy and pleasure.
