Just finished up this Revell ‘29 Ford , it has the frame from the recent roadster kit with the axles from a Speedwagon. Engine and firewall are from  the AMT Mod Rod roadster. Rear wheels and tyres are from the Pro Street Willys as I thought they looked similar to the old Firestone Indys with the sidewall detail on the inner face.

I did toy with building it as the roadster pickup and painted both bodies but was swayed by the closed cab once mocked up.

Like you I prefer the closed cab, but you shouldn't rule out building a companion roadster pickup. Great looking paint job and I like the interior. Very healthy looking rear tires.

That's a sharp looking '29! I much prefer the closed cab over the roadster. To me, an open cab on a pickup just doesn't compute. I really like the color you painted it. What is the name and brand?

Very beautiful little pickup truck Stuart!  It is certainly more enjoyable for it's driving feeling than its hauling capabilities but it's short box is way too cool anyway... well done sir!!!

Really fine looking hot rod.  Glad to see you left the cab roof stock height, too many chop it down too short.  That color really makes it come alive.  Very nice build.
