The 3 Stooges version has the chrome one bar spinner and little moon hubcaps, it comes with with stock Ford Deluxe hubcaps too.

The episode with the 'hook line and sinker' logos is called 'Cookoo Cavailers'  It was made in 1940.  I found it on youtube today.

In that episode those decals/letters are on a 1928-29 model A panel truck, with a row boat on the roof.  I wonder where the 1:1 vehicle is today.  I would have to do some more 'research' of old episodes to figure out what the other decals might go to.

 

The kit also comes with 4 printed Firestone white wall tires.

I found one of these van kits at last years NNL east.  Maybe I will have it done for this years show, for their van theme.

I tried to research the van that was actually in the Paris-Dakar race.  I could not find much but I did find a photo of one similar.

The vans were heavily modified for that race, including a 4x4 set up.

Im not sure about the rims in the kit, it seems like they need lug nut detail.

Still a neat kit. All of the Esci kits I am familiar with have nice tires with lots of detail on them.

 

Also it has left and right hand drive options.

Hi, I built an '80s long bed version from this kit.  I used a 4 cyl engine from a Nissan truck kit and the round gauges from a Cyclone kit.  I made window cranks too, since the kit had power window switches.  I also removed the abs module from the inner fender etc..   I think the rims I used were from the Amt '96? blazer custom rims and tires.  I weathered it slightly and added try transfer letters to the doors.  I also opened the gas filler door and added some detail to it, just like the 1:1 movie vehicle. (before the chase scene with the semi truck)

here is a pic of it, from my profile on this site, other detail pics of it are also in my 'gallery' in my profile.

 

I used a Perrys resin '80s S-10 grille and at least 2  S-10 kits to lengthen the bed etc, for the Terminator 2 chase scene version. 

 

I had a 1;1 '91 extra cab and also have a resin extra cab from Perrys, both probably are not made any more, they were some of his first castings and it took a long time to get them.

In the Three Stooges episode where they had a job selling fish, "Hook, Line and Sinker" the vehicle was actually a '30s Model A panel truck. Its a long planned project and now I think I could use the decals. I was planning on using the Minicraft '31 model A for it.
I wonder if Revell would reissue the '37 Ford panel truck with the "Elite Tree Surgeons", another stalled project...

I dont think there are any screen shots on that box art showing the model A on the '40 Ford box.
