Short C-Cab

Built by: Ira Dahm in Cotati, California

This car is based on the Paddy Wagon kit. The frame was shortened, and the rear wheels were moved forward about an inch. The front part of the body, and floorboard are from the Paddy Wagon kit. The C Cab, seats, gas tank, and the tail lights are from the Beer Wagon kit.

The blower, scoop, and the fan belt are from Tester's Coupster kit. The front part of the body was extended about 1/4 inch with sheet plastic. The body and engine are painted in metallic red.

This is the first model I have built in about 30 years. (I used to write for Car Model Magazine in the 1970's.)

I used the Paddy Wagon Kit, and the Beer Wagon kit and mixed the parts up and came up with two new styles of cars. I really enjoyed building these kits, it was great fun, and I am looking forward to building many more.
