Ford “C” Cab Flatbed Trucks

I’m thrilled to say that I’ve had to make another couple of my trucks for the local shop.

These are the ones that Dutchy did a plan for adding it to his website as a free download.

While the plans are first class, but I’m just a toymaker and have as per usual personalized the build as I went.

Couldn’t have made the trucks without Handy’s assistance, he keeps me focused.

Just so pleased the shop sold the trucks and some lucky child has a good strong hand made wooden toy truck to play with, that’s my real reward.

Another nice addition crowie... however, with your prolific Ford roll out, you may not realise you are making Holden a rare comodity in this ever decreasing antique market.

A child would be lucky to play with one of these, but I figure their parents would make them set it aside to keep it nice. A “collector” piece…

Looking great Peter, another job well done. You will be building more, as the demand goes up. The way to a child’s heart. Fanatic design.

So nicely done!!!
I like the way the same truck can be done with different woods to give a different feel to the truck.

Thank you ladies and gents for the encouragement, it’s my hope that the plans Jan made up will be used by many others to make the truck for the children in their lives.
