OLD SKOOL 32 FORD ROADSTER
Posted by Space Cowboy on Saturday, August 18, 2007 9:39 PM
I built this one some time back. Its a 32. I built it to look like some thing from the 50s. The paint is Met Purple. The tires are slicks and Firestone street tires with white walls. The wheels are steel stock. The engine is a Ford flathead with tri carbs and its wired and plumbed.



More pics coming.

Oh yes, now that's what I call a traditional hot rod. Beautiful job.
I'm hopelessly addicted to building models. Not finishing them, just building them.

Wow ... what a great model! It reminds me of the 1:1 '32 hot rod in the movie "Earth vs the Spider."

I made them myself. I used my dremel to remove just enough sidewall to insert a white wall.
