Today my friend Jon sent photos of his 1935 Ford Four Door.

He started with a Liberty Classics '35 Ford pickup.

He always amazes me with his projects.

Regards, Dave L.

One of my favorite Ertl Model Ts
is this all white one.

For a long while I've tried to figure
what commodity a white tanker could haul.

Milk is the obvious answer.
Someday I'll print decals for a milk company.

Regards, Dave L.

Two Liberty Classics Studebakers still need wheels painted.

The Shell logos are OK for the era.

Liberty Classics's line of models,
continues to impress me with their detail.

The 1928 Chevrolet pickup,
comes with a load of drums or crates.

They completely hide the coin slots.

This model is so easy to modify.

The bed comes off with one screw,
leaving a cab and chassis for modification.

Liberty Classics 1916 Studebaker truck comes in many versions,
but the one I mostly look for is the Lennox version.

I set aside the huge boiler casting in the bed, and then
use the truck with another load, or leave it as an empty bed.

I like this version because of the driver figure.
This truck uniquely has him (Dave Lennox) in the seat.

I've never seen another truck from this company with a driver.

Regards, Dave L.

I've seen this Ertl early Ford in a couple of versions.
The rack on top is a separate piece, as on this one.

Another version just has a cast ridge,
instead of the chrome railing.

I've removed promotions and painted the wheels
on my version in the photo.

Regards, Dave L.

I admit to being partial to tank trucks.
This Ertl Red Crown truck is well done.

The Yorkshire Co. Fort TT
conversion to a tanker using an Ertl tank
was described in this Thread a while back.

Regards, Dave L.

Looking at an Ertl 1905 Ford delivery van and an Ertl 1912 van chassis,
I got to thinking I might be able to make a nice C cab truck... Nope.

The '05 body is an eighth of an inch too wide,
to drop between the rear fenders of the later Ford chassis.

If I could get to the workshop and access to metal cutting tools,
I would cut off the inner fender sides and drop in the red van body.

Another project might be to cut off just the cab part
of the 1905 Ford and place it on the 1912 chassis.

This is not possible for me right now.

Regards, Dave L.
