37 Chevrolet Road Tractor

This is my new project. I've admired the work of Chuck Most for some time, and that inspired me to attempt an old barn find model. This one began with the AMT "Orange Blossom Special" and the Revell 41 Chevrolet kindly donated some parts too.

Lookin' good!  When I get settled in my new place, I think I will give a similar project a shot.

Best use I've seen for the old Orange Blossom cab. :) I need to do an F-600 barn find one of these days. 

Thanks Chuck!! This cab has some real issues out of the box. I made the windshield taller, I took some of the slope out of the side windows, I added 3mm to the rear bottom of the front fenders. Admiring your many weathered trucks, I thought that I would give it a try.

Very nice work and great concept! I my humble opinion a set of wheel sanders would be a perfect period touch.   Paul

Thanks Paul, I never thought of that.

It looks like this barn find may need some work. There's a box on the front seat with the starter, the distributor, the carb, the air cleaner, and some tools. There's a brand new valve cover gasket though. All of the spark plugs are out of the engine and there's a can of Marvel Mystery Oil, so the engine is probably stuck. Maybe that's why there's a For Sale sign in the box too.
