Thanks James for the feedback and absolutely agree with your verdict on this Elky.  

 

(PS - be watching for a possible 1/24th/1/25th scale El Camino Kit History article in a future issue of MCM)

Another teaser image from the album link:

This is a REAL '32 Ford Roadster Pickup body.  Note the much more upright, truck-like cowl, windshield frame, and door/body section, as well as the slightly different "commercial" grille shell/grille (a simplified stamping on '32 Ford trucks, vs. the multi-piece assembly on '32 passenger cars).  

 

There were very few of these made originally, and even fewer survive (most '32 Roadster Pickups you see are "Phantoms" based on the totally different passenger car roadster body).  Five more pictures of other equally cool pickup rods from Bruce's Rod Shop are at the link on page 7 of the album.  

 

Best regards...>TIM .
