Ok, another barn find for my friend that drag races slot cars. this is a resin Ford panel. It came with 3 different grilles, to be a 58 thru 60 I believe. Jeff wanted a Moon Equipment shop truck barn find. So, using duplicolor paints over red oxide primer, and weathering chalks/powders. I had no chassis to do the mock up pics,...but You get the idea. Since the pics I added some phone number decals, and weathered those too. More decal came off in places than I wanted, so one side is now the sound a cow makes.  but it works.

Not sure where to get this. The friend I painted this for got it in trade, along with the International Metro van I did. the Ford came with 3 grilles. So, as to who made it, and if its still available, your guess is as good as mine. Maybe check ebay, and swap meets.
