(PICS) Larry's one-off precision-diecast of a stock '37 Ford 'flatback' Sedan
’37 Fords were perhaps not the most attractive of FORD’s early years, but 10 years ago, my brother, Larry, figured that since no manufacturer offered a precision diecast of a stock ’37 Standard sedan, he’d make one…. Just because he could.
Testors offered a simple metal kit of a ‘hot rod only’ ’37 ‘flat-back’ sedan, which Larry took as starting material as well as the chassis/drivetrain from a derelict ‘Franklin ’36 Ford. With lots of internet reference, he proceeded to cut open the trunk lid area and fabricate a hinged aluminum/styrene lid, the trunk interior, firewall, main interior, inner door panels, seats, headliner, etc. He chose ’37 Ford Dalmatian Green as the exterior color with the standard light grey as the interior. Below are a few of his pics of the construction, as well as the finished sedan.
