AMT 1932 Ford Coupe "Snake Eyes"


Recommended Posts

I was looking for something quick and easy so I grabbed this out of my stash , mainly because I love the Box Art !   Fourteen days start to finish which is great for me since I only get an hour or so at my bench every day .
It's built right out of the box except for lowering the front and adding a distributor and coil . The chassis is just one piece with only a front axle and wishbone being separate parts , so I did a little creative painting to pick out some of the details . The only issues I found with the kit are the fit of the windshield frame and the taillights seem way too big to my eyes . . . I almost left them off .

"Snake Eyes" is painted Tamiya Metallic Red topped with Clear Red to tone down the metallic . I finished it off with a 1966 Florida plate , which is the year this kit was released .

How can you have a collection of model cars and not have at least one red '32 hot rod? This is just a beautiful standard for classic hot rods! Very clean and tasteful build, love it!

Thanks Rusty !  Actually this is the one and only '32 on my shelf .

Great job! Nice job on capturing the box art! That one is pretty hard to find and $$$ when it shows up on ebay.

Thanks Larry !  I bought several of the early AMT kits many years ago just for the box art and never built any of them , maybe I'll build a couple more .

Very cool. Looks like a fun project with great results. I need to do more of those if I have any hopes of getting through more of my stash. 😁

Thanks and same here !

Probably the best build of that particular kit I've ever seen.

You (and a few others on here over the years) have definitely inspired me to do a few simple box-art jobs.

Thanks very much Bill !
