Revell 1932 Ford Hot Rod Model Kit


revell 1932 Ford Hotrod Model



This is a Revell 1932 Highboy Hot Rod, with a surf board (I don't know where I got it from originally, I just pulled it from the parts box.) The wheels are from the parts box also. (I think they are Revell 1955 Chevy Pace car hubcaps, rims and tires).

The paint is True-Match Plum Crazy Purple (an original Chrysler-Mopar metallic paint color). The aluminum stacks I made from some aluminum tubing stock. Not every one of them came out well, it took some practice to get them right and get the ends flared correctly to suit me. I used an awl to open them up, and by carefully tapping, you can flare them. The biggest thing to watch for is the ends splitting on you. If this happens, just take your time and try to make another one. I don't remember where I got the intake manifold from.

The dice I added to the rear view mirror, they are an aftermarket item (Ken's Kustoms?). The interior is a charcoal grey.

This picture doesn't do the paint job justice, the metal flakes in the paint look great in better outside light. Of course, you have to have the Clay Smith woody decal on the fender to make it all official.

This is probably the best 1932 Ford kit out there, with a more modern suspension and Ford 302 engine. The brake booster underneath is tricky to install, but everything else fits together well. There is a Coupe version of this model as well, and it is just as good as this example. (I built one, but do not have pictures of it).

In 1932, Ford built 8,996 Roadsters. Most of them with the Flathead V8 221 acid. The average price for a '32 Ford was around $ 500.00 new. The Tudor Sedan was the most popular model, production was 90,568 cars.
