    Actually, just the fenders and tailgate were updated for '80, John. The basic box with flat top sides was used from '77 up.

    The '78 stones reissue has both two and four wheel drive rear leafs, so you could adapt one or the other for the front...

    Apparently, to some it does. That's what makes these discussions so interesting. A note to the literalists here: my qb comment was made in jest. Of course I've looked at cars and thought of different ways things could have been done. As this particular Buick mill and it's accompanying body was not presented as an exact window in time but as a dependable classic rod, I don't think there's any reason to belittle him for his choices.

    This is a picture I took a couple of weeks ago at a local car show and posted on another forum. I'm sure I can find a way to give the armchair quarterbacks here a chance to talk to the owner so they can spell out clearly what's wrong and tell him not to do it again  
     
    ...not that I don't agree with having a cohesive package, but if a guy wants a dependable road-going vehicle compromises may be needed. Lots of good points raised here starting with Greg's, but the owner's happy with it and I'm sure not going to whiz on his parade...

    Glad you added that 'almost, because without it the question needs to be asked ... obligation to whom exactly? There is a rulebook for these now?
    Amen.
    Howsoever, this gent is neither a mouth-breather poseur or an idiot. He's put together a cool , dependable truck that has logged thousands of highway miles with little trouble. It was built by him for him at his own shop and I doubt he's losing sleep over a bunch of guys on a model car forum putting his truck back on the trailer because it doesn't quite match their 'taste'

    Any room here for the possibility that maybe he's going for the look he likes and not necessarily trying to please everyone ?

  10. mk11 added a post in a topic Anyone making grilles for the Moebius Fords?   

    After taking some measurements on my own 1:1 '68 and doing some surveying of available kits, I've found that the headlight doors on the revell '64/'65 chevy pickup kits are a near perfect match for frontal area and could be grafted in. There may be some gifted individual here that may want give this a try. While this issue may seem not be on the magnitude of problems with Lindbergs' '61 Chevy or Revells' Charger, this basic grill design (with variances in the horizontal bars) was the face of Ford trucks for three years and it would reflect well on Moebius to take time to amend this. Nothing this flawed would fly on any of their other subjects so I hope they seriously consider it.

    He carried the theme out inside as well. Unfortunately the 'less is more' concept didn't figure into things when he piled all the stuff on the front

    I understand that; my comment simply reflected soley my own valuing. The man has done some fantastic work and deserves what the market will pay.

    Beautiful color combination and about as clean as you'll ever see one. Looks like he got the front park lights confused with the 67-69 style paintwise...
    500 bucks ?              nahhhhh
