Further Description/Back Story My wife surprised me with a monogram 32 ford and a Lindberg Big Red 27 T bucket model kits she found at a flea market. I purchased random chassis pieces and got out the Dremel tool and started cutting.
I used a lot of left over 1:14 truck pieces from my builds. Frame was put together with various m2 and m3 push rods and connectors.
