Tijuana Taxi

Built by: Marty Bohn

Executive Transport

This one is a Tijuana Taxi that I modified into an Executive Transport.

I kept the body fairly stock with the exception of adding ladder bars to the rear suspension, adding a balsa wood floor to the cab and making the fenders out of sheet aluminum.

I also moved the bench seat higher up on the body and added a scratch built ladder to access the luggage.

I covered the kit baggage trunk with thin balsa wood and stained to look like an antique steamer trunk, adding wood strips on the roof, chains to hold the trunk down and a beer keg below the ladder.

The engine is box stock with the exception of adding turned velocity stacks and a wired distributor. All decals are custom on Testor's paper
