Boyd Coddington's Eddie Van Halen Pickup Model Kit


eddie van halen boyd truck


Eddie Van Halen's pickup truck by Boyd Coddington

Isued by Testors models.

Eddie builds his own guitars (he used to use Kramer parts in his early days), and the patterns he paints on them are his own (in fact, he used to use Schwinn bicycle paint and tape to create his designs, namely his famous "Frankenstein" pattern).

From the article I read, the reason he said he uses that paint is, "...the more you sand it the shinier it gets".


Boyd has duplicated such patterns subtlety on the sides of the truck, and the kit does so with decals. Two original trucks were built. This one, and another one without the custom mods (more or less stock), but had the VH pattern painted all over the truck, end to end. That truck was a giveaway in a contest.

Even without the famous tie-in, the kit itself is a good representation of these style Chevy trucks. The tires and wheels are exceptional. This kit has very good detail. It's hard to believe it does not get reissued more often.


I have already built one of these kits (alas, no pictures of that one), but I built another one for:

The original EVH truck just out of storage. Eddie then had it restored

and customized for a later more modern approach.
