This is a Revell
1937 Ford pickup truck.
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
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.
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
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.
this guy had never seen a custom show car before.
