This is a 1:13 scale Ford C Series car hauler built specifically for the LEGO Mustang Creator set.
About this creation
This creation is 1:13 scale Ford C Series flatbed car hauler. I recently received the LEGO Creator Mustang set and just love it! I felt it needed a ride from time to time so I scaled up and modified the cab from my previous Ford C Series Dump Truck. This came about after a quick google search revealed several trucks like this, one hauling... you guessed it...a Mustang! The C series is period correct for the car (The Mustang debuted on April 17, 1964 and the LEGO model is a 1967) and when I saw the photos - well that sealed the deal!
This truck features folding loading ramps at the rear, spare tires, gas can, winch, work lights and chains in the back. The storage compartments are filled with various items such as another gas can, oil cans, spare parts and more. The detailed cab features running lights, mirrors and windshield wipers. The cab tilts smoothly to allow access to the engine area and front steering axle.
The truck is a work in progress, so currently it has no engine or interior due to budget and time constraints. My plan is to add them, paying tribute to the Mustang with a similar V8 engine and a similar two-tone tan interior.
The build style of this truck is a combination of a LEGO Technic chassis (including the steering, rear axle, differential and possibly the engine; if space permits) and a more traditional LEGO Model Team/Creator cab and body.
