AMT Extended Cab Ranger project

Recommended Posts

So a LONG time ago, I started a project of an extended cab Ranger to replicate my 1:1.  As many of our projects go stagnant, it went on to the shelf of doom, not to see the light of day for about 20 years.  Well, as skills and building materials improve, I resurrected the old codger, finished the roof, made a game plan for the side "glass" and finished the body.

I stretched out the chassis, interior pan, and body using two kits, then modified the door panels for the interior using those fake credit cards and strip styrene.  Made molds of everything and cast up a few sets.  



So today I have made visible progress.  Lowered the rear suspension, painted some stuff.  So I had to check the ride height.


I hope to have the drivetrain sorted out soon so I can start with the details.  I'm kinda stoked about this one.  Hopefully it doesn't take as long as the SVO did!


Thanks for looking!

Started with the engine and got the interior done.

I'm using the Monogram SVO Mustang 2.4 Turbo engine.  Made a new intake manifold from styrene and aluminum tube.


Made the bench seat from a F150 fit.  I know the split is on the wrong side, but it's been 23+ years since I owned the real truck, so I just didn't want to be bothered to build an accurate seat.  LOL 


I've also done some work on the side glass.  Seems like it worked out ok.




Now I hope t isn't another year before I post more progress.  Lol
