32 Ford chopped and channeled

Recommended Posts

This is one I built a few years ago. Chopped the top approx 3-4 scale inches. Body was fit over the 32 chassis from the 29 roadster kit using all the drivetrain and suspension from said kit. Wheels were from 37 Ford pick up.

 I can’t remember exact colour used but I do know I put some gold pearl in the clear.

Nicely done. I did a chopped 3-window several years ago and, oddly enough, it was candy gold, too. But it was before the Revell '29 Roadster kit came out so it's based on the '32 chassis. The new '29 kit sure is a fine parts kit for this sort of work.Looking forward to seeing more cool hot rods from your bench.

Even with the chopped top the body proportions all look perfect. Great color and paint. Very cleanly detailed engine.

There's so much right with this build. I absolutely love it! Makes me want to rush to my local hobby shop and pick up the 29 Roadster......oh shucks.

Your build is a knockout- great looking 3 window.

Awesome build. I don't see any taillights though.

Thanks Jim! You know I never noticed for some reason! Guess I wasn’t worried about being street legal?

Very nice amalgamation of parts from two kits. I especially dig the color, and of course the Nailhead!
