32 Ford surf rod

Recommended Posts

This is based on the Revell 32 Ford kit. It has been channeled, and lowered. I wanted a motor with “presence”, so I went with the DOHC 426 hemi and added ignition wires and fuel lines. Parts box surf board and  fabricated roof rack. Paint is Dupli Colour metallic blue with flat clear, surf board is same colour with gloss clear. Also added parts box wheels and tires.

Another superb build Steve!  Great idea to use the matt finish on the body and gloss for the board.  A Ford body with a Mopar engine... not bad for a Chevy guy... ?

Very nice, they'd certainly get to the beach quick enough.

The metallic paint with flat clear gives an interesting effect, I like that.

Thanks for all the kind words guys. Much appreciated. This was a fun build. The metallic paint with flat clear does give a cool iridescence.

Cheers, Steve
