Traditional Hot Rod 1930 Model A Closed Cab Pickup

Recommended Posts

This was a 1930 Ford Closed Cab pickup build, part of a Car Modeler magazine article comparing three aftermarket resin '30 Ford Pickup cabs (from Art Anderson/R&D Unique, R&R Vacuum Cast, and the late Ron Cash).

It was matched with the custom frame/front suspension and Buick Nailhead V8 from the original AMT '40 Willys/'32 Ford Custom Tudor kit. 

The exhaust headers were from the earlier MPC funny car kits (the Color Me Gone '67 charger, the '67 GTO, and the "Ramchargers Dune Buggy), tunred upaside down and painted with then-available Testors "Chrome" spray paint.   

Those narrow tall'n'tallers sure look like they were from the Modelhaus catalog....

This model was built just around 20 years ago, well before today's "Traditional Hot Rod" design ethic became as popular as it currently is...

Again, more pictures follow here....   Thanks for looking.....TIM

Thanks Guys....I'm knee deep right now in restoring a 51 year old model that was mostly destroyed soon after it was completed, so I have not had time to post pictures of the rest of my hot rod closed cab pickup collection, but hopefully will do so soon.   As mentioned elsewhere, the remainder of those models, when posted, will appear in the Pickups/Light Commercial/Vans "Under Glass" section rather than here...….TIM
