This is from the Four Hill Billy Hot Rods. It is, of course, the pickup.

I changed the wheels to Mags and added flames on the sides. I got the Mags and the flames from the 1931 Hot Rod Ford Roadster, designed by Osni Chioveto.

This project was very fun to build and I will be building the rest in the set of four, maybe in half scale.

 I used 1/4” plywood and MDF for the 1/2” stock and pine for the engine.

Thanks for lookin’

This is really a fun build Bill. I love it. The flames really pop on the blue body. Nice choice of colors!

Brilliant paint job, and I really like the wheels. 

Mine is not as flamboyant, and as it is to be used as a charity box, I lengthened it and then it looked a bit odd so I added a fuel tank.  It is a great toy to make. The transfers are for Harveys Beer (UK).

Thanks to everyone's kind words. I did enjoy doing the hot rod and now working on the panel wagon version.

Wow, Bruce, I just love your panel wagon I just hope I can do mine as well as yours. Just brilliant!
