'40 Ford Bobber

Recommended Posts

I don't really know what to call this one, a rod, a custom, a what....

Chassis, suspension, wheels and tyres are from the Barris Surf Woody. I wanted a model that showed up the chassis detail. Engine is donated from a Willies Gasser (not sure which one) and body was a 40 Ford coupe, slightly gas axed. Paint is Tamiya Pure Red.

Bit of fun and it looks cool on the shelf. And thanks to the Silver Fox who donated the power plant and body (or what's left of it).

I like that. It looks like a grown up Hot Wheels rod, which can't be bad.

Great looking build. Besides the detailing that you did it looks well engineered enough to be streetable . I like looking at and trying to figure out the source of all the different parts that went into this build.

Whoa, wicked! I love that front 3/4 shot showing the independent front suspension and rectangular headlights. Crazy, creative, and it all works pretty well despite the wide and disparate range of parts and inspiration.

Kind of reminds me of Gary Campesi's awesome digital car concepts. Well done!
