’32 Ford Channeled “Pseudo-Tub” Show Car
More photos below

Many moons ago, ago about the time it was first introduced, I attempted to chop a Revell ’32 Ford Tudor. It went ago until I lost a part of the “A” pillars. The rest of the kit was picked clean of virtually all its parts as the half-cut body traveled from one parts box to another, homeless. Recently I decided to remove the top altogether, making what a TRaK member name “Dub” had christened a Pseudo-Tub at about the time of my original ill-fated chop. Dub had built a fine traditional style Tub hot rod from his decapitated Tudor  and I had always intended to try something similar. But as I gathered parts for my Pseudo-Tub project I encountered a gorgeous set of resin diamond-tuft quilted bucket seats. This caused me to do a full 180 from a 50’s style traditional street rod to an early-60’s style show rod with a Duval style windshield grafted on from an AMT ’32 Ford Phantom Vicky which also contributed it’s chassis and cowl. Instantly this turned into a monster kit bash. All the parts sources and details are listed below along with more photos.

Revell ’32 Ford Sedan: Main body (top & cowl removed), firewall, front shocks and headlights, taillights, license frame, coil springs and shocks
AMT ’32 Ford Phantom Vicky: Chassis (2 scale inch Z at rear), front half of floor pan, Rear axle and suspension, grill shell, cowl, dashboard, DuVal style windshield
Monogram Lil’ Coffin: Wheels front and rear, rear slicks, shift lever
Revell ’29 Ford Roadster: Buick Nailhead motor including carbs and exhaust headers
Revell ’30 Ford Phaeton: Steering wheel
Aftermarket parts: Drag City Casting: Diamond tuft quilted seats, front Buick finned drum brakes; Replicas & Miniatures of Maryland: Carb scoops; ThePartsBox.com: wire-reinforced resin ’40 Ford 4” dropped front axle; Modelhaus Tires: T120A front whitewalls; Aurora Plastics Corp.: "drawer pull" grill from vintage #592 Custom Grills & Trim 1/25 Scale Customizing Automobile Parts
Scratch built parts: front leaf spring, tonneau cover, interior side and rear upholstery panels, rear half of floor pan
Paint and finishes: Duplicolor white primer and Duplicolor Universal white base coat, Tamiya TS65 Pear Clear (3 coats), “Fade” panel paint job done with home-made decals, all sealed with Tamiya TS-13 clear (5 coats).

Thanx for lookin’

Hey Bernard, looks like your photo links are all broken. The build sounds awesome. Any chance you could repair the links? I'd love to see it.  I know one of the admins (Dave Ambrose) can give you editing abilities, because I fixed some broken links on some of my old posts.

Hi Dave,

Thanks. The photo links all work for me. i can see them all on my computer, both in the original post and  when I expand your quote. It's a pretty recent project and the photos are all on imgbb, my current photo hosting service. I also was able to go to them @imgbb when I clicked on the photos posted here. I hope they show up for you. It was a fun build.

B.

Well now they're working. Maybe my work server has imgbb blocked. Wicked cool phaeton.
