I just cracked-open the c.2015 reissue of the venerable AMT 1953 F-100 (the one whose box art is the "Retro" version) , and am ready to dig-in. I'm going for a mildly-customised look ; a work vehicle with some custom touches ( the grill which appears to emulate a 1960 Ford or Edsel [?] ; the "Swiss-Cheese" bumpers ; stock interior , with the 2-way radio & phone , and a custom floor shifter , and ; RWL or Redline tyres with plain , unembellished wheels ) . I'm at an impasse of sorts regarding the engine . While I'm not adverse to using the L-Head V8 , I'm trying for something period-correct (well , up-to c.1969) engine-wise . I've been toying with using one of the following : - Pontiac OHC Sprint-6 from the MPC 1969 Trans Am - FE engine from the 1960 Starliner - Buick Nailhead from the AMT 1962 225 (?) - Pontiac V8 / Hydra-Matic from the AMT Parts Pack So , to this end , I'm looking for the easiest conversion . I would love to see some of my fellow modellers' conversions , with an accompanying "How To" . Please , share your ideas --and photos-- with me . Thank You !
