Diamond T in Red

Mid 1960's Diamond T conventional. Using the AMT Diamond Reo kit as the base and a resin hood from Spaulding Trading and Shipping and a few parts-box items - my plan was to build the truck used in a Diamond T advertisement in the 1960's with an aluminum frame. The photo has always intrigued me. I obtained the hood in '07, painted it in '11 and finished it 2/12/12.
