I hope to eventually replicate my Grandfather's first car, a 1933 Dodge coupe. He hot rodded the car in the 60s by putting a 283 in it, with the all important Corvette valve covers and a 4 speed transmission. He still owns the car to this day. I have searched for a 1/24 or 1/25 model but have come up with nothing. Am I missing something? I thought a 1934 Ford Coupe would be pretty close. Here is a reference photo which is not of his car.

 

Thanks In Advance,

TR

AND...the consensus is that you can get a good start with a '34 Ford. 

If you're working in 1/25, I'd suggest trying to find the 1/24 scale Monogram '34 Ford kit. As the Plymouth/Dodge cars are slightly larger than the contemporary Ford products, you'd be a little closer.
