1950 (or so) Chevrolet Panel Truck

Recommended Posts

Greets;

Does anyone do a resin 1950 (or so) Chevrolet Panel truck, stock, that could be used with the AMT 1950 Chevrolet Pick-up? I have so many ideas and pictures of trucks I'd like to build using this as a base. In fact any panel truck resin is hard to find.

Hendrix Resin and Star both list what you're looking for.

They seem to show everything that was ever made.  That Panel is what I got years ago for my Canopy Express.  So good luck finding one.

I said that in 1995, finished the  1948* Chevrolet Canopy Express  March 2020. ?  The original resin caster had something happen (I'll just say not good), nice to see it's available again.  The interior part is hardly accurate, it's just the box floor with a quick extension, the tubs are totally inaccurate.

I've contacted Star and it's not currently available as are all of the panel trucks he has on his list. Hendrix, as was stated, lists everything that has ever been made in resin. Most is no longer available.

You might be able to start with a Gravedigger kit.

Good idea but not enough of the body is left.....

There (are?) Some diecast ones available of the that body type. I can't testify as to the accuracy of the scale. These were sold with several retailers logos like Pro Hardware and even Schwans ice home delivery.

That second brand name should read Schwans Home Ice Cream delivery.

I swear All American Resin did a '50 Chevy Panel Truck, but maybe not. Perhaps a perusal of Rocketfin would turn up some possibilities. Perhaps Herb Deeks and/or Ron Cash made one?

Yes, Casey , All American Models (Art Anderson) did this resin body! I picked one up in the 90's from the Toledo show from him.
