This model actual reprises one that Danbury released all the way back in 1999. The 1935 Ford 50-830 Half-Ton Custom Pickup, in dark Burgundy, was a custom remake of the standard issue truck that was first issued in 1995. The top was chopped, the body and suspension lowered for that, “in-the-weeds” look and it was outfitted with cool custom parts. This go-round, however, brings us a little nostalgia in the form of a period vintage hot rod with well worn primer.

The little rod features a custom paint job to simulate a number of rough and worn out areas over the truck’s surface, a set of exhaust stacks that run from the bottom of the vehicle, through the running boards and up alongside the front of the bed. The running boards have chromed Ford step plates and the truck bed dutifully shows signs of rust. You’ll locate an auxiliary fuel tank in there too and DM plumbed it straight through the wood bed with a metal line. The tail gate opens and is tethered with vinyl-clad wire. And check out the swinging 1935 Arizona license plate. It reads, “ACE” and it is mounted on actual chains. It might have something to do with the painted logo on each door, “ACE Hot Rods”.

To go along with the western theme, we find a Native American blanket covering the seat and take a glance above you on the cab’s ceiling. Yep, it matches. The dash and period-cool shifter are superbly crafted. I like the way DM fashioned the outside rearview mirror, club sticker on the windshield and the intricate pinstripe detailing on both headlamp shells, tailgate and hood. Careful with that, it just rests in place. The bed cover, on the other hand, snaps down to form a perfect fit. It is adorned wonderfully with a large ace of spades. Danbury even thoughtfully provides a vintage Moon Eyes cardboard box complete with a couple spun aluminum moon disc wheel covers.

The engine detail is positively delightful! The flathead V-8 features colorful trips and the mill is plumbed and wired nicely. Finishing up the nostalgic look are yellow-painted wheels with whitewall tires and small chromed Ford hub caps. DM does customs and rods right and this little example is pleasing to the eye. Its sassy stance and altogether wrong attitude is just as cool as it can be.
