Wow, almost a hole day and only one comment? 

I guess either I pissed off a lot of people or I posted this in the wrong section.

 

Maybe it's time for a Rod & Custom section??

That’s beautiful. I dig the period-correct, stock  look of the paint scheme and the lime green wheels. Very classy and understated.

Great job! Very clean build. The engine looks great. Love the plug wire boots on the plugs and distributor. They really make it look like 1-1.

Yeah, things can be very slow in the truck section. Outstanding job you did on this one! Are the door handles out at the chrome platers?😁

Add me to the list of people that missed this one!  I know it's my problem, no-one else's, but when I see Model Truck I think of Kenworths and Peterbilts, not Model A pickups.  The only time I remember to look in here is when a hot rod truck pops up as the first post when I get online.  I suspect I might have missed a number of cool hot rod trucks as a result.

And yes, I love your truck!  In the WIP section I said I wouldn't change a thing and my opinion hasn't changed.  I haven't even opened my Tudor kits so it is neat to see what you can do with the wheels in that box. This would look right at home in an Aussie rod run.

Cheers

Alan

I missed it, too!

I'm nearing the finish line of the RPU version, hope it turns out half as nice as yours! :)

Very nice truck. As I’ve been playing with Model As lately, and already have two roadster pickups, I’d been thinking about a hard roof version too!
