And if you happen to been burned out on the traditional look, the wheels and running gear from the last issue of Revell's '32 Ford Coupe could probably get you close to this late '60s beauty.

I like that. And AMT has some nice blue line slicks that could approximate those rear tires.

Here’s the one I built back when the kit was introduced. It went together well and was fun to build.

If this kit had fenders, I'd be all over it. Still might be good for parts though.

Model A fenders from other kits can be made to fit with a little bit of work.... -RRR

I'm sort of thinking the reverse; using the guts from this kit (with a complete engine change), to doctor up another Model A kit that already has the basic body structure in place. It's certainly something I'll be considering.

So, I didn’t see this specifically addressed in the various other Revell 2020 threads that got closed...but with all the Corona stuff happening is this one likely to be delayed?

My thoughts exactly when I saw this kit. There's things I'd have done differently in retrospect, but I'm overall happy with the model.

Rob, Nice Ride!

Thanks Alan. Between all the Revell Ford Model A abd Model B kits, there are a lot of options for all sorts of swaps. I'm gonna try one with the AMT '32 Vicky soon.

I built this when it first came out, years ago, can't remember what I kit bashed but I DID use a Caddy mill!

Dennis, that is outstanding, as well. Caddy Mill is a great touch.

I know most of you aren't into hot rods, but when Revell issued their new tool Model A series it was the best thing for us rod builders since the '32 series was introduced in 1996. When the tooling was mishandled (not sure we'll ever know the full story), it was devastating (as devastating as something such as that can be in the grand scheme of life and death). Today, I received the new new tool '29 roadsters in the post. I bought four and gave one to KK... -RRR

Hmmm, I still have two of the previous release of the '29 Model A Roadster, so I don't think that I'll be buying the new issue. Be sure to wipe down the box before handling as it did come from across the pond.

looks like globs of glue on the bottom of the decal sheet; is that supposed to be simulated rust?

This kit is different than the first issue IIRC....isn't it a different engine??

If only they did it with full fenders,...

Are the fenders from the Revell '29 truck the same? If so, shouldn't be too hard to rustle up a set. 

Or how about the fenders from the AMT '29?

There should be plenty of both in the spares boxes of the gang here. B)

The engine in this kit is the 3x2 carbureted (sp?) or blown SBC that was in the '30/'31 coupe version originally. This kit also has the chrome wheels and knock-off spinners from the coupe kit (as well as the steel wheels, trim rings, dog dish caps that were in the original roadster kit). -RRR

There's got to be a way to mix & match. I''ll need to look into it.

I like the dry lakes lettering and "Paso or bust" decals. Cool stuff.
