’32 Ford 5-Window Highboy

I built this in 10 days with the express goal to get one last model done before the end of 2015. I just made it on the evening of the 31st. It’s what I’ve come to call a “therapy” build – a simple, straightforward project covering familiar territory with idea t o get something done in a ,short period of time that I will be satisfied with and that’s not too technically challenging. They’re usually Revell Deuces, which is right up my comfort zone.

This one isn’t quite Out Of The Box, with a pretty severe redo of the kit stance via a shaved front spring and notched frame rails, and a blown Revell Parts Pak blown Pontiac 421 with carbs and air cleaners from a Revell Parts Pak SBC. The wheels are Halibrand 5-slots I got at the NNL West a few years back. I have no idea of their origin. The rear tires are Herb Deeks truck items and the front “implement” tires are Modelhaus T100’s. Paint is ultra basic, just Duplicolor Gloss Black on the frame and Duplicolor Red Oxide Primer for the bodywork. I neglected to photograph the interior but it’s the kit interior with a seat from the Revell 32 Ford Goodguys Roadster, all finished in blood red leatherette with a black dashboard floor area and steering wheel. The grill graphics are from the ‘50’s and applied by way of a home-made decals.

Just yer basic Hot Rod…

Thanks for lookin’,
B.

Hard to beat these old coupes for a nice hot rod.

I like the lowered front end, and maybe I can use that on one I intend to build soon.

Good job. :lol:
It doesn't cost any more to be nice.

Thanks everyone. The Revell Deuces really need help in the stance department. You gotta be merciless with the front end. These days I'm down to one leaf on the front spring and notch the frame rails for clearance in order to get the front end down. The rear could do with some lowering, too, unless you want some radical rake like I did here. I was going for that "phone booth" effect along with the unchopped top.

Broken Photobucket links repaired. For now I'm only updating completed model pics. Updating w.i.p. links is just too huge a task! I'll update them on request...
