Find the last issue of AMT's '29 Roadster, Classic Series IIRC. It is discontinued but GM has them listed:

with all the parts to build the '29 stock or hot rod, there are many parts from the Ala Kart in the box: body, frame, radiator and grill, interior, bed parts (not all of 'em) and top. There are enough parts to get you started though.

many
I just posted on alt.binaries.models.scale a pic of the one I recently did using the parts I mentioned. It was fun as my very first parts box build and was a great learning exercise. No wonder I like OOB :-)

wow, that's great. are you going to weather it like a rat rod? you did channeling and lots of mods, yes? the rails are cool and the body has a neat stance. i hope to do motorcycle wheels on the front of mine. very cool chuck, and thanks for the extra effort.

I had a '36 series going for awhile but they got side-tracked and are sitting about collecting dust now. I have a roadster, 3-window coupe, 5-window coupe and, yes, a convertible under way.
I think the '36 was maybe #4 in my list of model cars built. I know the first two were '40 Fords and there was a Monogram Black Widow in the line somewhere. The '36 was in its original 1961 box.

there
Thanks e, I'm glad you like it. Nope, it is done. Yep, I did channel the body down level with the bottom of the frame rails then sectioned the radiator and grill to match the cowl height. I posted a fairly indepth decription on abms. It took so long to find all the 'right' parts and get everything to fit the way I wanted, I decided to leave it bare nekked as a building guide for the next time :-)

I scrounged around for a couple years collecting the last issue (yellow) of the AMT '36 roadster just to have a couple 3 window coupes. Since I go mainly to IPMS shows, the most I had to pay was $15 sealed. Now I have 4 of them, 5 of the 5 window and an American Metal 1/24 cabriolet. I just wish Monogram's original '36 was 1/25 :-) I find a rut for myself all too easily. Same 'collecting' thing happened with Monogram 1/72 P-51Bs, F4B-4s, P6Es, F11Cs and any make of F-84s, 86s, 100s in any scale. I'm *so* glad I never got into WWII German A/C or F-4s
The AMT '34 Ford PU and '36 Ford were the first two 'big kid' kits I had. Before that I built just about every 1/32 Lindberg car our local party supply carried............ after all their 1/72 A/C :-)
