My niece is getting married this summer,and she asked me if I could make something to put on her raffle table for the Stag & Doe. A quick look around the plans I have and came across this T&J plan 78. (1917 Ford Truck) Having never built this one I figured it would make a good project for me and a great prize for her…... maybe even make a couple of bucks.

Built of scrap pieces and and shorts I had in the shop. Walnut, Poplar and a bit of Padauk. The wheels I had on hand, left from another project. Finish is just a few coats of rattle can Varathane.

bushmaster ;; No… The wheels are commercially available…... These one came from a local hobby store.

Great to see this build. It’s a time ago you posted a build model here. Very nice my friend, especially the wheels.

I like many aspects of this; using scrap material, building a vintage style unit, and giving it to someone, where it will end up being a treasured piece of art too!

Great looking truck! This should bring about lots of conversation at the Stag & Doe! Nice work!

I’m sure that it’ll make a good few dollars just keep the children away from that beautiful model…

Great looking truck—should be a crowd pleaser!

Great project I love the roof and the seats the most, but it’s a whole project that makes it work.
