A Model Pickup Banger Rod

Post by Hicksy on Fri 21 Jun 2013, 11:08 pm

Hey guys im new to the forum, ive been keeping an eye on all the builds here for a while and thought it may be time to show off some of the stuff ive been working on. Ive done quite a lot of builds in my younger years but haven't picked one up for quite some time. Anyway, what better one to get back into it with than a '29 A model Ford pickup (my dream car by the way.) The kit used is the Monogram '29 Ford rat rod 3 'n 1. Believing I can make this car into more of a ratter than its intended the first thing thrown away was the instructions. As I said ive built quite a few scale cars in my younger years but never really went too custom with them. Since the '29 pickup is my dream car I decided it was best to build it exactly how I wanted it. The cab and tub have both been channelled to sit as far over the slightly modified chassis and standard diff as possible, the 4 cylinder engine was chucked out (I know, ya buy a rat rod kit you expect atleast a v8 right?)I dug through my old parts box and found a 460 ford sidewhacker v8 out of a 1949 Ford Merc, if my memory serves me right. If its early its gotta have a flattie. I custom made the straight pipes and the trumpets on the Tri power intake manifold. Here is a couple of pics of it mocked up to see how it should sit, ill get more pics up as I go. Let me know what yall think.
