About “FOSHO”

Description: '40 Ford truck with a '77 Chevy 3/4 ton built from 4 models and many hand built parts, the bed made of balsa wood stained and varnished with pin heads for bolts, gold striping tape, dual batteries held down with bent pins + - wires run to starter, tail gate net I tied together, bumpers and roll bars were bent from aluminum fence tie wires, the same was used on the shock and steering stabilisers except polished.
The 305 twin turboed Chevy SB has correct spark plug wires to the distributer, master brake cylinder lines, steel braided radiator hoses, gas fill hose and winch cable.
The interior door handles and drink tray I built from balsa wood. The guages, stereo and C B are detailed enough that with powerfull glasses you can see all the indicaters and buttons.
Thats real tint and striping on the glass.
The paint I custom mixed then ghost flamed and I added green pearl to the clear even on the bumpers and roll bar.
I shaped the gas tank from brushed aluminum.
The axle trusses I modified with plastic and hole punched.
