This was built on a dare from a dear friend of mine who passed away a few years ago. His name was Scott Davidson who owned a hobby shop here called Fine Scale Hobbies. He dared me to build a model & enter it in the 1997 NNL East Special Theme Class. I built it, it won it. Very proud of that. I opened the doors & trunk. Scratch built & kit bashed a lot of the suspension. There is "Glass" rolled down in the doors. The engine is a ford from a late model mustang kit. I wanted an all ford hot rod. Notice the ford part numbers on the mufflers. I scratch built the intake & used carbs from a corvette grand sport kit. A lot of small scratch built parts on the engine. It has removable dipstick, turned aluminum stacks, fuel pressure gauge, wired & plumbed. The grill is PE with a wired cooling fan behind it. Steering column is turned aluminum. Real wood steering wheel with PE spokes. Flocked interior. Paint is boyds aluma coupe yellow over yellow primer. It was built in 1996 & still looks good. I'm sure that I forgot something but here are some pics.

Bruce, you have built one of the nicest '32's I've ever seen, congratulations! One question though, what kit has those mufflers in it?

Mike, The engine & mufflers came from the monogram late model mustang convertable. I forgot what year it is. I used the basic block with trans . Intake was scratch built but patterned after the grand sport intake.
