I'm not positive, but wouldn't the engine out of the Revell-Monogram Jeep J-10 pickup(Pink Poison, Rancho, etc, etc) be correct?
I realize that it's 1/24th instead of 1/25th, but it could easily be shrunk some if deemed necessary by scraping block, head and various other surfaces down slightly.

I've visited his museum before. He also has had quite a few models donated from people who have built various replicas of his famous #43 through the years.

Sure beats the heck out of trying to chop the top on an IMC 46-48 Ford! I bet they are going to sell a ton of these.

They really are nice, it's just they have the same problem that I had with 1/18th scale. They take up so much room I could for the more typical 1/24-25th scale things. Very tempting though and I'm just glad to see the name Hawk back on the shelves, even if just for the nostalgia factor.

Very nice! Sometimes the traditional wire hinge just isn't correct in appearance for some applications.
Not that I've installed that many of either on any of my builds,lol!
