'25 Fordillac Roadster Pick'em Up Truck

22 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

After building the '50 Ford Low-ridin Pick'em Up Truck, I got a hankering to build another.

Started with bits and parts from the AMT 1925 Ford kit and the Revell 354 Cadillac Parts Pack engine.

Inspiration was drawn from the "Hot Rod Lincoln Roadster" in the August Street Rodder Magazine.

Cool!

There's something about the simplicity of this...very complex in its own right, yet so simple and elegant.

I think Charlie said it well. This is just an honest street rod that has the right look. I like it!

Can you tell us about the radiator shell? That's very cool and makes the build. It gives the rod a face.

Scratchbuilt...

glued a couple of rear fenders from a chevy pickup, drilled and filed the openings:

cut off the stuff not needed, and one "tractor" grill created:

Thanks. Now I remember that thread. I actually glued together two rear fenders from the '55 Chevy step side, but hadn't gotten any further.
