The Kit

The kit is for a 1940 Ford Sedan Delivery, custom designed and built by Gene Winfield. The kit can be built three ways – stock, street, or strip. The kit comes with enough parts to build two motors and come with a motor stand to place one motor on. The motor can be built three ways, too.

The instructions are well drawn and easy to read, but provide no color scheme to follow. It lets you paint it your way.

The Build

Before beginning, wash all the parts in soapy water to get any mold release agents off them. You begin construction with the motors; there are enough parts to build two. The interior is constructed next, adding both seats and the dash. Next, add the tires and rims by fastening them to the steel axles provided. The interior has enough room to add other accessories, should you desire.

Final Assembly

Glue the frame to the chassis; the frame is only the fenders and the grille. The interior comes next, fastened to the body by two tabs in the front and the walls in the back. Final assembly glues the body to the chassis and frame at the sides of the frame. The rear door can be glued in place or left unglued so the van’s interior can be seen.

Thank you to Round 2 Models for a great re-pop of a great AMT kit with art work, and thank you to IPMS-USA for the chance to review the kit. A final thanks to Gene Winfield for a great design for a great sedan.
