Starting this build today of J/F resin 50s or early 60s White cabover. I'm using a Ford C series cut down chassis and the closest interior is from the C series also. Had to narrow it some but I'm liking the fit. Engine looks like the problem now because of motor height , but I also said that about finding an interior

Put the interior shell back together after narrowing and changed the Ford dash to look closer to the White 3000 dash and narrow to fit interior. Changed the tire wheel combo to a resin older style tire/wheel . I also decided on a flat bed style straight truck instead of a tractor. The flat bed base will be covered with wood planks and maybe make sides, this one will take awhile, plus I need to get 2 steer tires to match the rears, and since the chassis was from a glue bomb build I still have plenty of clean up..🙃

Got this old White up on the tires . The cab needs to come down a little which is no problem. The interior is where I spent the most time but now I can do the final sanding and refit into the cab. I also noticed the windshield may need to be mounted from the outside which means making some window trim. The bed will be a farm style stake bed.

Only slight progress on this old White, the bed is close to being done just need to make some sort of sides and bulk head. Interior just needs final sanding to smooth it out then add some door detail. I also need a double seat for the passenger side.
