1953 Ford Gasser

  • Hi

    I have finished this gasser, starting with the '53 Ford Victoria from Lindberg.

    There is only a stock version in the box, so I had to add some aftermarket parts to turn it into a gasser.

    The engine is a Ross Gibson Ford "drag engine", the gasser suspensions are resin items bought on eBay, the interior features bucket seats with belts & photoetched buckles. The wheels & tires come from my parts box. I had to modify the firewall to make room for the big gearbox, & the chassis for the big rear tires.

    The body has been painted Tamiya silver leaf. When dry, the lower body portion was painted with Testors clear blue, & the roof with Tamiya mica silver (all with spray cans). I then sanded & polished everything.

    Despite the mods, the assembly was relatively straightforward

     

    Thank you for looking, I hope that you enjoy.

  • Ford....you did a great job on that Gasser conversion.  I've often wondered what the Lindberg '53 Ford would like in Gasser form.  Now I know the answer.  Congratulations.   TIM BOYD
