1965 Dodge A100 pickup
Posted by chromecop on Monday, January 07, 2019 2:35 AM

This is my latest build. I started building Dec 2-2018  and it was finished on Jan 5th , 2019. During that period I was also abroad for 15 days som only about 18 effective working days went into this build. It has a slant 6 inline engine with a 3-speed manual, I also widened the rear stock wheels and changed the tires both front and rear. I also scratchbuilt some extra details, like speaker grille for the dashboard, the orange beacon-light for the roof, the chromed horns an all the linkage for the steering.

Nice. Did the engine drop in or did you have to modify things?

The engive was pretty easy to mount. I used the stock mounts in the frame and glued small "notches" to the engine block  which rest on the frame-mounts.

Really great work.  I love the wide rear wheels.

You should do a tutorial on how you did them.

 

Just keep picking away at it...

Thanks! The rear wheels - I took the "common shortcut" and just cut the "lip" off from the stock wheel and then mounted an extra wheelback/-ring on the stock steel wheel to get a deep effect.
