1975 Ford 1ton flat bed
Built this to be versible on what it will be towing
Scratch built flat bed deck with real wood,custom western style rear bumper with pintel hook that is removable,also have a stock style draw bar for pulling car trailer or utility trailer's.
This was originaly built to pull my scratch built hot shot two car hauler trailer, then got to thinking heck why not make it a shop truck and do all sorts of things......
The engine is out of a 1979 Ford bronco and it replicates a 351M400, Bud wheels with michlen long life tires.
The box on the back is scratch built to hold the extra goodies when not in use.
Fuel tank was scratch built and a filler neck and bracket made from scratch.
Good Looking Truck
Great looking truck, nicely executed. Great scratchbuilding work - is the hood hinged or does it just lift off, tho?
Not totally scratch built!
Personally, this is a basic kit build with some very nice scratch build add-ons. The tow hitch is fantastic and I think is one of the best parts of the model. The remainder is fairly standard except for the addition of the little touches like the tools in the box etc. The display is not too bad but could use some background or setting. The truck looks good as an auto hauler. I would have liked to see better paint cut lines too.
Overall not a bad model and a good representation of an everyday farm truck/work truck.
The title says it all. Imagination has been utilized in this creation. Its built into a practical utility vehicle that you'll see on any old farm or hillbilly backyards.
