'64 Chevy pickup
Posted by JayVee on Wednesday, October 19, 2005 9:29 PM
While waiting for the paint to cure on my '56 F-100 I started this one. It's been lowered about 8 scale inches in front and 6 in the rear. It'll be Champagne Gold with a white roof, birchwood bed, and a dark blue interior. Seats are from the WagonRod. The engine will be from the SSR kit and seems to fit really well. The exhaust system will exit right before the rear wheelwells into rectangular pipes, which should look pretty cool.

Should turn out great! Can't wait. What are those wheels & tires from? I have been trying (half heartily as I already have soo many projects) to lower the front but just can't get it low enough. Yours looks great in that photo.Big Smile

Those are the kit wheels. This is the "California Wheels" version of the kit.

Yet another clean build in the works, JayVee........ say, if it's AMT or you can make it work otherwise, the '55 AMT Nomad has some neat looking hollowed out rectangular exhaust tips, you may want to use.

This is a fun kit and a very cool truck when it's done. The only downfall with it is the 4-piece hood, 3-piece cab, and 4-piece box. Yours looks to be heading in the right direction!

To Lower mine I Fliped the front axel so it rested on the frame
I cut it apart so it could fit and this was the final result

Thanks for the tip Andy. I just keep having problems with the tires hitting the top of the inner fender before it gets looking right. I was going to use a big-n-little set, but just haven't spent time on it. I'll look into it now though.Big Smile

Sure, I'll do that. I'm almost done with my F100. Once that's wrapped up I'll get back to this one and post some more pics. BTW, I removed the front inner fenders to clear the tires.
