41 Dodge COE - Done and in the finished section

52 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

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!!!!!

Just my 2 cents but I think the tires are too big for that era.  Even if updated a bit.

Thanks for the ideas guys, I know the slotted resin ones are smaller diameter than the L700 wheels.....

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!
