I purchased the plans for this model from Toysandjoys.com. The truck is about 15” long It is made of pine and MDF. The grill, wheels, headlights and lattice were all made on my Shopbot CNC.

Nice job P’277... Being a Ford it “must” be black.

Unfortunatly, (in my opinion) paint disguises the wooden substrata.

Thanks, gentlemen. The black paint is a water base rattle can product. I hate the way most rattle can paints stink up the house.
LBD – you are right the FORD had to be black.

Thanks, Tony but a number of the parts are MDF, not impressive.

Your Shopbot CNC didn’t notice that the headlights were mounted to a headlight bar between the fenders and the radiator shell. All early Fords had a single, transverse leaf spring in line with the front axle.

Phil32, I appreciate your input. I did not know about the details you point out. The plans I bought had these items as I built the truck.

Phil277 – The people developing plans are only interested in selling plans. It is intriguing what woodworkers have done with such plans. Technically Ford did not manufacture a vehicle like this. They were built by after-market suppliers. Ford sold a lot of bare chassis (engine, frame, & wheels.)
