Amt 1934 Ford pickup rod build on budget.
Posted by Gluecipher on Sunday, November 19, 2017 10:52 AM

I have this amt '34 Ford pickup and ive been thinking a lot what to make of it. Im limited to use only,and only parts from commonly available other model kits and no aftermarket part comes to question for any reason, so lets forget them please.

Yet i would like to hear your suggestions gladly.

I want it to have its recovery boom, or make a better one. Not real wrecker boom but just a hoist to pull off engines and cars..

It wont have any fenders, that im 80% sure of.

I was thinking of using the dropped front axle of Revell 29 pickup ford, as it just is so much more authentic, and as it will be so visible it needs to make some sense.

Maybe move the axle 2-3" scale inches forward too.

Maybe a slight chop but i think(?) i wont channel it at all.

I could use tips on kits that have tall/high, narrow whitewalls as i want to use such on the stock wire wheels.

Quick change rear end too if i find one.

As for engine i would love to use flattie with latham blower (since scots dont exist in many models im aware of, maybe in just two and i dont want to buy whole kit, just for the blower and throw rest of the parts ti oblivion.)

Other engine option might be Chevy 6. 

Simple interior with tach and roll bar for stop light wars, and cozy sofa for two to have fun in the drive-in theater. 

In my head the car belongs to some guy who works in junkyard or gas station ,at 50-60's and studies to become a car mech, and he builds his daily driven rod bit by bit, using maybeold race cars brought to wrecker, and sure dont care about fender regulations nor the looks of the car so much as he cares about how it goes. Not a rat rod of these days but maybe not so far away either. 

 

So if you have ideas,i really want to read your part ideas, where to get this and that part, perioid correct speed tricks etc.

I'll try to figure out easy way to post pics.

 

Thanks.

You seem to have a great idea going there already . I wouldn't chop it myself , but yur choice . Mechanics drive mucky cars as they say , I'd do multiple colours and sand back in the rubbed areas slightly . Worn in .... The motor should be a work in progress as he's an "apprentice" so the Chevy stovebolt with a 2 carb manifold & headers ?? regarding photos I use pintrest its free & relatively easy to put on here and tons of ideas too !!

Hey thank you.

Yes i think having a blown flathead would be bit too expensive and rare choise for young guys car since lathams werent cheap back then.

Stovebolt has nice feel to it as i think there many lying around after guys swapped them for flatties and smallblocks. Small block is the last one, with nailhead, that i want to use in mine.

Multiple colours or somehow unfinished paint is a must too.

Heres how I do it .... Big Smile

#1 - On a laptop PC & using microsoft edge internet explorer . 

#2 On the " Reply with Quote " ( Not quick reply ) theres an icon with a mountain range & sun [ Between the chain ( or strange square glasses !?!) & film reel]   - putting the pointer over it , it says 'insert/edit image' Click on that . 

#3 A small screen will show " Edit Image " in  bold - top left . 

 (In the source area will go the URL from the selected photo from Pintrest .) 

#4 Open a new page & go to Pintrest , select from your folder the picture you want .

#5 Clicking on the picture , then click on it again to 'highlight' that one image  you should get up the specific url for that photo .

copy/cut the url , then paste in the source area on here . 

( I'm useless with 'tech stuff' , but soon got used to posting up here .Geeked

Here's proof !
