    Look for Moebius to be at the Detroit Model Show next month with the latest updates and possibly some prototypes to check out.   My built up of the 70 F-100 4x4 will be there too.

    Exactly right, but that's a very good thing in this case.  I've seen photos of the 65-66 mock up and its planed variations including it's optional parts.  Anything that's not 65-66 specific will also be a drop in fit for the 69 - 72 kits as well.  I'm betting if you're a Ford Light Truck, fan you'll be very pleased with what coming !!!

    That's a good question Brad, your probably right but I don't know for sure.  What's in the kit is same trans the comes with 6 cylinder version that would probably represent a three speed column shift.  However once it's built you can see very little of the transmission.   I also probably should have painted the trans case a cast iron color too.

      Thanks Chuck !!  Trying to find 1:1 examples of F-100 4x4's that didn't sport full modern aftermarket tires and wheels and or lift kits was pretty tough.  I did manage to find a few, here's a 71 F-100 4x4 with the hub caps in question.   It looks pretty original to me. 

    Maybe they were dealer installed or aftermarket accessory items like you mentioned.  My goal was to simply show what could be done with the kit based on the parts given to me.   I could have easily left the wheels open but it was my choice to use them.  I'm surprised no one has mentioned the modern battery that's in all the F-100 kits.  Go figure ...

    Thanks Mike !!  It's the same basic rear axle, different mounts to the spring.  The F-100 use blocks to raise the rear ride height to match the front.

    Mike, I removed the lower body trim, it was very easy to do. I just sanded it off with some sanding sticks.

    Moebius '70 F-100 4x4
    Here's the completed build up for Moebius, while I was putting this together I discovered a few small things that needed tweaked. I believe Dave has it all resolved now and it should be ready for production very soon. I have my fingers crossed that they'll be shipping these before the Holidays.





     
    In the future I would like to see some more appropriate all terrain tires added to the kit. Regardless, I think ‘70 Ford F-100 4x4 pickup is a welcome addition to the Moebius Truck line up.  I can’t wait to see what other modelers will do with it.

    No Automatic Transmissions were used on 67-72 F-100 4x4's   Powertrain choices were either the standard 240 six or optional 360 V8 both with a 4 on the floor. The F-250 got the 300 six as standard.  The kit will have the V8.
    If you want to build an 67- 72 F-250 4x4 you can use the suspension parts from the AMT 78 F-350 4x4 kit.  Those parts are practically a drop in fit I've been told.

    Yes,  I'm finishing up the box art build up as write this, should have photos up this weekend.  The instructions are being completed and Dave says he just got a test shot of the last few additional parts required for this version.
