What hot rodders do when they want to build a model car?

The St. Joe Valley Street Rod Club, with members located in the South Bend, Indiana... created a display, including the box, that replicates an early 1960's AMT plastic 3-in-1 model kit of a 1940 Ford coupe, using an actual '40 Ford and associated car parts and kit building items (paint bottles, glue tube, etc.).

A "tree", one of two, was created to hold actual flathead engine parts, including a block and heads. The second tree replicates one that held chrome parts such as nerf bars, bumpers and wheel covers.
