Built this for another forum's group build; didn't come close to finishing in time,
Image

Built it as a mild sleeper and surprising close to box art. Body and wheels painted Krylon peekaboo Blue. Used chrome pen for trim rings and hub caps. Used the Hemi with injector stacks. Interior painted body color and black. There were a few fitment issues, but nothing too serious. A word of advice, watch how the front axle goes in. I screwed it up by going by instruction pictures, so I glued wheels offset on front drums to somewhat center them in wheelwells.

Actually the kit is correct. I own a 55 F100 and before I modified it the wheels were not centered in the wheelwell. I looked odd. The rolling chassis I bought fixed that problem by extending the wheelbase slightly to center the wheel.

Thanks for looking. Comments and constructive criticisms welcomed

FINALLY!!!!!! SOMEBODY here got the details correct on a 53 Ford deluxe cab . However , the window division bar is Stainless steel and you COUL have had a chrome windshield reveal molding . You'll need to scratch build the "Boomerangs around the F-100 hood emblems as AMT for what ever reason sent this kit out in 1963 with a Deluxe grille and a Standard hood .
