40 Ford "load cars"

Recommended Posts

I decided to go ahead and build the cars for the tractor and trailer and this is what I came up with in the last two weeks.

I wanted a convertible ,but couldn't find the article to convert an AMT coupe, so I just started chopping. I looked at the Revelle body for reference.

I used the cover from the Revell kit and added a back seat.100_0297.jpg

The rest were straight from the box, well almost.

Building a lot of the same thing can get tiresome, but it was fun since I usually don't build anything stock.

Oh, the red one is for a special pursuit unit. Dual carbs, dual exhaust and radio communication.

Nice collection. My 39/40 Tudor and 40 Coupe came in the mail last week. Your builds inspired me. Can't wait to get cracking on mine. Good job.

Those came out great. I've always wanted to do a build run assembly line style like that.

Thanks, Guys, the show was great, what little I saw of it and we had a good turn out.

Oh, Derick, I built pickups just none of the stock, except the tractor.
