1932 Ford Four Door Sedan Hot Rod
Posted by Dennis Lacy on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 9:32 AM

1932 Fordor Sedan using the conversion body for Revell's '32 Sedan kit by Drag City Casting. This project started a while back when I created the master body for Drag City to mold, cast and sell. Once I had a production resin body in hand I set out to build a 50's traditionally styled hot rod with it. Hope ya'll like it!

 

- Drag City Casting '32 Ford Fordor Sedan resin body

- Revell '32 Sedan donor kit

- Frame back-dated with center "X" and rear cross member from Revell 1940 Ford's

- Revell 1940 Ford's Columbia 2-speed rear axle with Revell 1948 Ford's radius rods and spring

- '32 Sedan front axle and suspension with Revell '32 5-Window "hairpin" radius rods

- Revell 1940 Ford's brake plates with Revell 1929 Roadster finned drums

- Revell 1929 Roadster wheels and tires with '48 Ford hubcaps

- ArDun flathead engine from Revell 1950 Ford Pickup kit-bashed with a Vertex magneto, modified Chevy finned aluminum style oil pan, Revell Tweedy Pie carbureters and AMT '32 Phantom Vicky lakes style headers

- Full exhaust system bashed together with sections from Revell's '29 Roadster and '48 Custom Coupe

- Interion from '32 Sedan kit with door lines reworked to match Fordor body

- Revell '48 Ford steering wheel

- Tamiya "Pearl Light Blue" over their light gray primer and sealed with their clear.

Again, an amazing custom! What I like the most, is that the model doesn't look to me like "too much". Looks like a hot rod I would own myself...

That is one very smooth rod, with neat and tidy building, and a classy colour.  Your wheel and tyre choice is perfect.  I like this a lot.  Cheers.

That is one sweet hot rod, really like the color.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Looks great! the knowledge of all those parts and ability to get them together so nicely is amazing! Good work! Cool Thumbs Up Bow

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
