« Part 242: Chevy Corvette 1953 Making what's wrong right Part 243 of Toy Construction series Part 244: Ford pickup 1955 glueing it up and getting ready for some wheels »

Got a slow start on the 1951 Pickup.
This is a Toys and Joys plan, in maple.
There are quite a few Beautiful ford pickups on the site so here’s my slant on it.

I was either less than 1 YO or still cooking! depends upon the model release month.
if the release date was pre May 1951 I was still hiding, if post May 1951 1 to 6 months

As for a slow start, ... I am still behind you muddling about with my wheels project, as they say the wheels of a big machine turn slowly.

And a little more.
The back hood and grille aren’t glued up yet, got a lot a sanding to do before that happens but you get the idea.

I like it. That totally captures the look of my grandpa’s black Ford PU. It had an a oval rope-bordered sticker in the rear window that said “Made in Texas by Texans”.
