You can try these two companies. American Industrial Truck Models and IIIini Replica Conversions
Here are the link. http://www.aitruckmodels.com/. The link for Illini Replica conversions is on the front page of American Industrial Truck Models at the bottom right. AITM is great to deal with and the castings and service is great. I have never dealt with Illini before, maybe somebody here has.

Although I might end up doing this version instead. I think this looks pretty cool too, especially the cab lights.1934BBFord_zps612ca7ea.jpg

I love the old cab lights, 3 green in the middle, 2 amber on the outside.

I know the pic is different but still has 2 green and 1 amber

I have bought from Illini. Top notch castings of old Kw's, Hendricksons, Diamond T's. Super nice guy. I have tons of AITM resin also. Frontier resin designs on ebay has some great old school medium to heavy duty stuff as well.
