Here is my recently finished 37 ford pickup.... this is the MOST box stock build i have ever done LOL (first finished model of 2013)

But not all box stock :o

1. Custom scratchbuilt intake manifold design (w built in electric superchargers)

2. Converted to fuel injection

3. Newer style distributor (scratchbuilt)

4. FULL msd ignition; blaster coil, 6AL box, distributor (all wired up properly)

5. Converted to OBD1 computer system

6. Str8 pipes!

Basically my design is... surf shop bought old rusty pickup, slapped on nice paintjob, upgraded engine for better fuel economy, all brand new suspension for better ride, slapped on a set of aluminum rims (about 16 or 17 inch scale) with slicks!

now on to pictures!

oh man that is so cool , love the graphics, and that board looks like real wood. Under the hood looks great to but the best part for me has to the rust on the bottom, thats great just like real STREET rods we had

Very nice build John. The wheels/tire & stance are perfect. Are the wood sideboards & bed decal or paint? Love the shark on the hood/roof.

thanks for the comments guys!!

lazlow you definately got the theme i was going with! lol

JC, all the wood (including the surf board) is all kit supplied decals :o .... its my first time ever laying down wood grain decals lol, normally would just do a custom tonau cover...

i cant remember where i got these wheels... ive tried them on about 6 other projects but only this one looks rite haha

oh and the best thing about the decently shiny finish is..... no clear coat :o .... and not even polished :o:lol: !!!

just a simple primer and color paintjob! (rustoleum automotive paint)

any other questions/comments gladly welcome!

This FOR SURE! I can't believe how much more real it "feels" having the underside "not so perfect".

Nice chassis work. I always weather mine, some a little and some a lot, depending on the story of the car I've modeled. Note that every car, other than a polished show car, has some degree of wear on the underside. Even cars being unloaded from the truck at the dealership have toning on exhaust, some rust on bolt heads and some dirt from rain.

A little bit of toning and wear on the average running car....
