Thanks guys! I was thinking a '51. A friend of mine at work gave me this casting to "do something with it". Half of the front bumper and grill is missing. That Roadmaster is just awesome!!! I'm thinking making a yard find out of it. A little bad but fixable. All of that chrome in the front kind of through me!
I wasnt born until '59 but I would drive these cars every day!!!
No probs. The more I look, the more I like the old Buicks. One of my faves is the 1957 Buick Super Riviera 2 door. Sweet ride, especially with a continental kit in the rear. Too bad the real ones were prone to front end suspension troubles...very expensive to fix, 1 year only. One I've seen in a car show the guy took the old body and mounted on a '72 station wagon chassis to solve that problem.
No probs. I was looking at the 1:1 Super Smooth and it doesn't really look like a '39 pickup to me. I only see a faint resemblence at the chopped roof of the cab and windshield. The fenders look more like Hudson fenders if they are even truck fenders at all. The grill is completely different. The bed is pretty obviously scratch built. There is very little if any to indicate it started life as a '39 GMC if all I have to compare with are the other two pics of the stock and mild custom.
