This started with the 66 Flareside kit. The cab and chassis were lengthened using sections spliced from a second kit. The wheels and fifth wheel are from Scenes Unlimited. The tailgate was made from plastic strip and mesh screen, and the bumper is a modified Moebius part. The bed was littered with junk and the whole mess was lightly weathered. Paint is Krylon Chalky Scarlet and Colonial Ivory.20200413_152339.thumb.jpg.7e0844aee595b7587933f0560e81cc29.jpg20200413_152349.thumb.jpg.50d7b085e345d36ad8065d01c70f9e39.jpg20200413_152401.thumb.jpg.a08729385b37e54dec7fa31c9bbfa1ce.jpg20200413_152414.thumb.jpg.5cadf7ec6cecbbbd9f67e3b7ece37f55.jpg20200413_152428.thumb.jpg.aa839133f3c944e7c81cb330bf3fe482.jpg

Very impressive work! The 4 door cab is spot on to the factory units first offered in '65. 8 lug steelies are a great choice. Looks like a ex railroad truck finding a new niche in life.

Wow!  That's gorgeous!  It looks like you could jump right in and drive it - if it would start!

Well that's something you don't see every day. I really like this. Not enough middle weight trucks. Reminds me of the railroad trucks I saw as a kid.

That's a real nice job Sir!  Perfect weathering job.  I had never seen a 4 doors FORD cab of this era before and I must admit that's very cool.   This is to be confused with a real one!!!
