’40 Ford Sedan Delivery Shop Truck

This is part of a set I’m building consisting of a ’34 Ford Roadster dry lakes car, shop truck and trailer, all done in matching colors and in the style of the late ‘40’s or early 50’s. This is based on the AMT ’40 Ford sedan delivery kit. Precision Porting and Machining is a fictitious firm from the period offering a cost effective alternative to more expensive cast aluminum heads. Precision were expert at filling and reshaping the combustion chambers of stock cast iron heads to yield big torque and power increases, equal to the best of finned aluminum heads. Their secret was they possessed a flow bench and new how to use it. They painted their heads bright red so you new you were running them. They marketed them under the PowerFlow name.

The model is largely built out of the box with the following changes:
Motor: Kit stock flathead with Revell Goodguys ’40 Ford twin carburetors and manifold.
Tires: Modelhaus T120C front tires and Modelhaus T180C rear tires.
Paint and Graphics : Home made decals, DupliColor Wimbledon White and DupliColor Deep Jewel Green Metallic.

Thanx for lookin’,
B.

Perfect vibe, colors and graphics; sweet little truck. Looks like it's right out of some of the old hot-rod and dry-lakes 16mm films

Thanx guys. :) On to the '34 Ford lakes style roadster that will be its companion (which, of course won't be posted here in Truck purgatory - not a big fan of subdividing things into subject categories...). Shooting for the NNL West on Feb 14th. Yikes!

Nice looking Delivery, I really like the paint scheme and your decals are awesome. The Flathead is really cool. Looking forward to seeing the other components of your team. :)
