1934 Ford pick-up

Post by ozmodeler on Sat 29 Nov 2014, 9:07 pm

Hi all. this is my latest project. The excellent "Lindberg " (ex AMT) 1934 Ford pick-up 3in1 kit. I'm building it as a early 60's show hot rod , I've chopped it 3inches , shortened the bed and bobbed the rear guards. Its getting tuck n roll chairs ,full wheel covers ,whitewall tyres and mad paint. It's also NOT getting a small block "chev". A vintage hot rod engine of some sort will be fitted. this is all I have so far." />

Love the 'Vette caps and understand your not wanting to use a SBC.

A set of narrow whites would work well with the wheels and gve the car an early sixties vibe.

Are you familliar with how Gene Winfield painted his shop truck? Both the blue version and gold are among the best treatments I've ever seen for one of these things.

However, that engine is as traditional a hot rod engine as any flathead V8, the first one was swapped into a hot rod about one minute after GM revealed the '55 Chevrolet range.  And once the SBC arrived they dominated most drag racing classes like no other engine before or sinceand that include the famous Chrysler hemi.  Heck, one of the cheif designers of that engine and the father of GM's Corvette, Mr Ziora Arkus Duntove even wrote a letter proclaiming that GM should now start making parts available to soup it up and target the hot rod market at the same time.  It still dominates drag racingm, NASCAR, Sprintcar racing, even our own Taxci cab series also known as V8 Supercars.  Ford's flatty was in production for only 20 years whilst the SBC has been in production (yup GM still make 'em)  for almost 60 years, which is a pretty fine track record among internal compustion engine designs.

I've been working on the bench seat, with mixed results. First I cut out the area where I wanted the tuck n roll , then I backed up the area with styrene sheet." /> then I cut pieces of styrene rod 2.5mm diameter for 2 1/2" pleats whew.." /> Finally I painted the seat semi gloss white and added "tiger tail" jewellry making wire for the gold piping.overall the effect looks better in real life than in photos , my next attempt will be better !( I hope )
