Revell 1937 Ford Pickup Truck Model Kit

1937 Ford Pickup Truck

 

This is a Revell 1937 Ford pickup truck.

I removed the bed and made it out of a clear sheet plastic, so you could see the modified gas tank, and the rear chrome suspension I made from various other kits. The chrome street-rod type suspension was primarily from an AMT Parts Pack, reissued a few years back.

I smoothed out the firewall and dash. I added a custom engine - flathead with triple show blowers on top. I added a third brake light in the roof, after cutting a hole and shaping the red plastic I used. It's painted Testors Gloss White and French Blue. I put a lot of custom work and time into this build.

The Miller Beer decals are an add on, out of my parts box, left over from a Rusty Wallace Nascar kit probably. Most of the fancy work on this 1937 Ford Pickup Truck was done on the suspension, and can't even be seen from the top.

The interior features a colorful pattern on the seat, which originally was a sticker for the Revell Ford Expedition snap model kit. Essentially this example I made is to represent a show truck. Not a "real truck" as far as a daily driver.

I like this kit. It went together well. Even building the truck stock would be a good project. The original commercial decals are well done too, it would even make a great Gas Station Service Truck.

I once had this truck in an IPMS model contest, where a judge had mentioned on the contest sheet that I lost points because no truck would have 3 blowers on it. Not that I really care, just thought it was humorous.

Guess this guy had never seen a custom show car before.
