AMT 1940 Ford Dirt Track Car Model Kit

This is an AMT 1940 Ford Coupe. I made it into a dirt track car.

I left the fenders off, and made a few modifications, including the tow bar. The glass was left out of the frames. A lot of old track cars use no glass, or they used some kind of chicken wire. Probably for safety reasons during mishaps, and to keep rocks and debris from getting inside the car.

I'm not sure if the wheels came with this kit or not, they may be from my parts box. But the steelies get the old car look across.

The model car is painted with Testors Gloss Red, and then sprayed with Testor's Dull Coat to fade it a bit.

The decals are I believe Fred Cady ( or maybe an old J & J offering? I am not sure).

Just about any old car can be made into a dirt car, and you don't have to make it a perfect build. Just have fun with it.

If you really want to go the distance, dirty the car up with some mud, scratches, maybe a bent body.

In 1940, Ford sold 33,693 2-door standard coupes. At a price of around $ 660.00 each.

The weight of a new 1932 Ford was only 2763 lbs.
