'61 RAMCHERO! ..... Deals Wheels Style Ford Pick-Up! 5-11-12


Recommended Posts

Looks like a lot of fun, Ira. Inspires me to maybe build a Deal's Wheels style Bugatti!

The MPC Dune Buggy Zinger has a 1/20 scale Boss 429 in it, if that fits the bill for you.

Thanks for the Suggestion Andy!

Found a 20th scale HEMI that looks much better than the BOSS 429!

Photos Coming... :D

IT'S GOT A HEMI!!!

I was sold on the 25th scale FORD 409 Engine, untill I saw the BIG HEMI...

I found a 20th scale HEMI Engine in the Little Red Zinger Kit.

The Double Superchargers were too tall for the Ranchero, so I looked for something else. I found a BIG Supercharger in the Groovy Grader Kit.

The Scoop from the WILLY WILD will be just what I wanted, after I do a few modifications... B)

Removed The Chrome...

First, I put the Supercharger and Scoop in the Purple Pond, to Remove the Chrome Plating...

Then I put the ends on the Engine Block & Cut the Block down a little bit.

I made a new base for the scoop, that moves it forward towards the cab.

I also Wired the Distributor and Drilled the Valve Covers for spark plug lines.
