1949 Ford custom

Recommended Posts

My latest build inspired by Ron Dunn´s old custom. An 3 scale inch section job, custom grille from AMT

51 Cevy upsidedown and slightly reshaped, 57 T-bird headlights and AMT 58 Impala custom taillights cut

in halves. Painted whith a mix of silver,gold,copper and bronze to get an early 50´s feeling.

Tryed to build after the device less is more.

That is beautiful! :wub: If my eyes are not fooling me it looks like the body is sectioned. I made one attempt at that on a "49 and ruined mine. I like all the custom tricks, it has that '50's vibe! B)

Outstanding in every way. Paint and body work is top notch.

Gorgeous !

Love the rounded hood and trunk lids...

the opened up wheel arches and section

give it a sporty look..well done. The sunken rear plate is a nice touch.

The flipper wheel covers can be found in the 40 Ford panel.

Very clean-looking. I love that clean unbroken fender line that sweeps all the way from front to rear- very elegant.

Absolutely stunning. That is some really well thought out bodywork- it avoids all the cliches of a typical custom- it has more of a coachbuilt feel to it.

Thanks for all your nice comments, feels great to passing on some inspiration.

My time at the workbench is quite limited, so i have lot of time thinking out the next step and how its should be done.The section job was done

in about two hours when I finally started.

The onebar flipper caps is pirated from an AMT 40 Ford delivery, dont know if all realeses has them. Could use another set for an upcoming project.
