VW Single Cab Pick-Up
Posted by PatrickW on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 10:27 AM

Having spent a while with my previous resin bodied DoKa, I thought I'd build up the Hasegawa kit that I'd copied so many bits from. Firstly my inspiration was the SantaCruz Cycles Truck.

So this is mine with shaved door handles, and a few additions, rusty-ish truck floor, sun visor, scratchbuilt wipers/exhaust pipes,truck style rear view mirrors, and borrowed the bikes from the DoKa. Plus home brewed decals.

Especially like those monster exhaust tips! Back in the seventies, a co-worker had a 1:1 with the fold-down doors removed and a Ford 289 and C4 trans under the 3/4" plywood deck feeding through a stubby driveshaft into a Chevy 10-bolt rear. Looked completely stock outside. The extra-long factory shift handle was retained and worked the C4. Instant wheelstands on the street with a 2-barrel motor. It was certainly a thrill being way up front and way up high. If I ever get through my current batch of projects I'll have to model it. Thanks for sharing your build. Beer
