After finishing the 59 Longroof ..

I got back to the 53 Ford chassis that was keeping it out

of "Under Glass". Work on the headers and exhaust is done.

I finished the Hemi wiring next.Cleaned up the touch ups.

And finally ..ready for Under Glass. Body and hood are sectioned,

roof is stock height.49 Merc tail lites and 53 Ford Victoria bench seat.

Interior door panels made from a tuck and roll bed cover with solder

window cranks and styrene arm rests. Frenched antenna on passenger side.

Black Force wheels and tires. Hemi motivation.

Nice truck. That telescoping stay rod in the bed is a nice touch; scratch-built? I'd like to see a close up of it.

Thanks Y'all for bringing this one back.

@ Johann

Got this one on my Fotki..

Straightened paper clip with shrink tubing..scrap styrene for the handle,end pads and some paint.wi

Stays on the bed just fine..just wedged in there. Then I added the release levers on the Jack stands with

solder wire.And a bit of styrene on the top of the Jacks.

@ MercuryMan..drilled out the sides of the hood right in front...the hood lip is thick

enough for drilling and inserting straight pins with a bit of super glue.

for drill

Great lookin truck, love the whole set up with the trailer and car. Also some really cool details with the stuff in the bed. Impressive how you get those little details in there and real nice touch with that stay rod. I would love to see some up close photos of all your little detailed stuff.

@ Jason..made this shrunken head for a 54 Chevy Phantom Wagon..bad thing is ..it's hard to see with a visor and all.

Made with tree styrene and paint.Here it is attached to the rear view mirror.

This is just a tool box,gas can and floor jack ..detailed with paint.

The "wooden" box is just to keep things neat.

Adding a little interest to a 72 GMC bed.

James, you do some of the nicest detailed stuff, even if it can't be seen right away. I was thinking of carving a skull head but I deffinatly have to try one of your cool shifters from your tutorials.
