Here is the final piece to my So Cal Speed Shop collection a 1953 Ford F100 pickup truck. It is put out by ACME and made by Lucky Diecast Company. It is not as detailed as you expect from ACME, but it makes a nice display piece. It has a Flathead V-8 under the hood, the hood opens, doors open and the tailgate opens. It comes with a trailer hitch that slides onto the rear bumper and a wood push block (plastic) that slides onto the front bumper. I would rate this as being inline with your typical Ertl diecast over all. Here are some photos and a video of the truck.

Very nice, I sure do like it but then I'm partial to anything built/created in the same year I was..lol.

John, in pics 5-6 there's a white model sitting up there on the passenger side. What is it please ?

Thnx, 

Steve

Steve, I know you're waiting for John's response, but I'm pretty sure that's his 1/18 Autoworld 1971 Pontiac Trans Am that he featured a few months back.

@chris 

Thnx Chris, I must have missed those pics ! 

I've always loved those first year new body style 'birds 'n 'maros. I wish I still had pics of my '70 red / white scoop and fender extractors T.A. 

I lost interest in them when the shape of the backlight was changed.

Thank-you. I've always liked the 2 color schemes. I wish I had researched the '70 that I purchased  Summer of '74 to inquire the color combo. It was red, black interior and had a white hood scoop / fender extractors. 

I don't ever remember the police officer selling it saying anything about it being repainted and I never saw anything that might reveal that. 

Steve
