« Part 258: Cattle cars number 3&4 Doors & Roof Part 259 of Toy Construction series Part 260: 32 Ford working on the radiator »

I build this Toys and Joys car [1932 Ford] way back but used pine and just was never happy with the way it came out so lets try it again with some oak.
This is a very simple [old] plan so doesn’t come with many details.

Cut out the sides and frame then sand sand sand!!!

Glue up for the hood, I don’t have much of this really figured oak so will be facing some plywood to get it done.

Here I’m taking off the masking tape and pattern for the frame really makes clean up easy.

Picture of the parts.


Will need to be playing with some spoke wheels in the near future me thinks. :-]

Is there an angle at the trunk? Can’t tell. If so, what is the angle?

It fits the shape of the body and is flat across the back, It hasn’t been sanded yet, hope that’s what your asking for.
