[Archive] My Lindberg '49 Ford Slot Car Conversion

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Hi everyone!

This is my conversion (so far) of the 1/32nd scale Lindberg 1949 Ford Tudor Coupe model. It uses Monogram Slot Car Parts on a home built Evergreen Styrene frame and body pan.

The 1949 Ford with the body removed. All I need to do to finish the car is to enlarge the hole ahead of the front axel and add the front pick-ups. Once this is done, I can then paint it. It will be orange with black and white racing stripes and numbers.

Glad you like it!

Here’s a few more pictures. Next up, I’m going to paint it.

After many hours (And many pains), I finally got the chassis finished!

It uses the Monogram 9 tooth pinion gear and the 26 tooth crown gear. I broke the outer crown gear spacer trying to force the plastic gear on the knurled axel.

All plastic pieces are Evergreen Styrene and the screws / metal parts are from an old stereo.

The 1949 Ford after all the componients have been added. Now it’s time for a paint job!:wave:
