Modified '35 Ford Sedan Delivery

  • Original year: 1998
  • Company: Testors
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Dave Carlock

A good hot rod designer must have a vivid imagination and his ability to visualize a finished machine will encompass automobiles of almost nay kind and shape. What's a Vantastic? How about a Ford sedan delivery, circa 1935, mounted on stylized 1937 Ford fenders. Its beautiful flowing grille pays homage to the venerable '40 Ford, while its chopped, shortened and massaged body represents an interpretation of a "phantom" sedan delivery street rod. Vantastic is a thoroughly modern running with a classic theme. Power is supplied by a Corvette LT1 350 Cu. in. V8 with automatic tranny.

Thanks also to Chevrolet for the suspension. You'll find 16" and 17" custom alloy wheels with BF Goodrich rubber keeping Vantastic earthbound. This is delivery at it finest!

Dave's comments:

One of those slick understated '90s show rods that honor past achievements while breaking new ground in color and styling. Testors did some great custom cars in the '90s including the Chezoom, the Aluma Coupe and Boyd's Smoothster. This beauty is by Dave Carlock, former AMT designer who has many kits on this site. The purple candy coating on this one makes it look good enough to eat!
