Default Anyone know of a 32' Ford 5 window body

Looking for either lexan or plastic in 1/8, 1/10, or 1/12th scale. The old parma hemi deuce coupe would work, but they are a little hard to come by so I was curious if someone else is making something similar. I have spent too many hours in the last few weeks searching with no luck.

Nate

At hobby town I saw a 1/8 scale revell or Amy model. It was about $80 but it would fit your specs

Also what about the RJ speed legends bodies? I know they have a lot of different bodies there. The legends are close to 1/11 scale but they have various 1/10 as well.

How about 1:18 Die-cast?
Too small?

Found a 32' Ford Highboy on ebay. Not a 5 window, but close.

There are quite a few model T's on ebay to.

These guys have a couple different ones. I have never ordered from them though so I can't tell you how good or bad they are to deal with.

Best bet Nate would be to find a Duece 1/8 model by Revell and custom the cab. I've looked for a long time for one of these bodies.

The eduece isn't taking orders currently and his bodies go for upwards of $100.

Thanks guys.

I have checked the educe site before and he is very hard to catch when he is making bodies. I have tried to get an order with him for a couple years. I wanted dimensions, but have not been able to get them.

The rccarking bodies are cool, but trying to go fenderless. For what it is worth, several guys in the pulling club order from them with great luck.

The hemi coupe 2 would work and I have a couple hemi motors in the garage, but I can't find one for sale.

My old man has a highboy, but we are making some dragsters and really like the look of the 5 window. I may have to pick a different body.

Nate
