41 Dodge COE - Done and in the finished section


Recommended Posts

At least I think it's a 41, not sure. One of Jimmy Flintstone resin bodies.. Dodge L700 chassis with the front axle moved forward. Added a half inch to the front of the frame...

trying to decide on wheel choice right now... leaning more towards the resin ones as I want this to be dated to a later vintage.. 

not sure if it's looking the part of what I'm after but this is it so far..... what do ya think???? Be honest!!!!!

All these look great, and Kerry the Dodge cabover makes a great donor, I went with the J/F resin White 3000 cabover and tire wheel combo, the chassis from the Dodge L600 is the right size for S/A tractor..

Check the curvature of the front fender openings.  They look like they could be smoothed up a bit.  Can I suggest making a template of an opening using a compass on a piece of paper.  Cut out the template and place it against the opening to see if it is round.  Tires and wheels look pretty nice!

Hey Charles, yup since I took those pics the other day the wheel wells were sanded and are curved better than in the pics..... they look better now, forgot these pics were taken prior to that!!!! Lol
