My '32 5 Window, 2 years in the making.

Got this about 6 months after it was released as a Revell Special edition kit, started it about a year later, then ran into problems, boxed it and forgot about it until earlier this year, I was then on a mission to finish it, So here it is, inspired by a local Hot Rod and Bruce Springsteen song Ram Rod;

Hey, little dolly with the blue jeans on

I wanna ramrod with you honey, till half-past dawn

Let your hair down sugar and pick up this beat

Come on and meet me tonight down on Bluebird Street

I've been working all week, I'm up to my neck in hock

Come Saturday night I let my ramrod rock

She's a hot stepping hemi with a four on the floor

She's a roadrunner engine in a '32 Ford

Late at night when I'm dead on the line

I swear I think of your pretty face when I let her unwind

Well look over yonder see them city lights

Come on little dolly 'n' go ramroddin' tonight

Come on, come on, come on little baby

Come on, come on let's shake it tonight

Come on, come, come on little sugar

Dance with your daddy and we'll go ramroddin' tonight

Hey, little dolly won't you say you will

Meet me tonight up on top of the hill

Well just a few miles cross the county line

There's a cute little chapel nestled down in the pines

Say you'll be mine little girl I'll put my foot to the floor

Give me the word now sugar, we'll go ramroddin' forever more

The Irony is that I started out with just a Hemi from unkown origin, later found out that it was from the '68 Road Runner, so it literally a Roadrunner Engine I was putting in my '32 Ford. Anyway, bits and pieces from the kit, the parts box, and various aftermarket companies.

Enjoy. I already have.

I love the black on this one and the late '60s early '70s vibe. The bare foot pedals are a nice touch. Nice pair of '32s and great pics.

Anything finished that nicely, and stuffed full of Hemi, is just fine by me!

BTW: Did you resist the temptation of orienting some of those foot pedals differently?

Thank you Guys, was a long but still pretty fun build.

John, yes I thought about configuring the pedals differently but then decided I like this configuration the best.

Charlie, I like to think that I'm progressing as a builder.
