I like the looks of the Superior/Sunnyside 1937 Ford 1:24 pickup truck.

Here's a link to what it looks like in red:

Red 1937 Ford Pickup


However I'm a bit concerned about the scale. It's billed as being 1:24 scale. However this company (Superior/Sunnyside) has been a bit loose with their use of the 1:24 description in the past. Like these Crown Victorias that I remember seeing in person and they were way under sized compared to my other 1:24 vehicles and even many of my 1:25 trucks.


Crown Victorias

Does anyone have this pickup truck, and if so how does it match up with the rest of your vehicle fleet?

I have several, but they are by two different manufacturers. There are pretty much identical. On one the hood is removable and the other the tail gate drops. On both the doors open . Mine are dark green with black fenders. I am very happy with them and feel they are 1:24. Both are made in China. I don't think I spent more than $6 or $9 for them.

7.5" long.
Frame on a 1/2 ton is 157.38"
Gotta figure bumpers and horns.
That's a frame length of 6.56"
Add 1/2" per bumper and horn, you've got the 7.5" length.

Bumper to bumper is 182" to 185".
7.58" to 7.71".
The only published dimension of the model I could find falls right in line with the prototype.

San Juan,

I have two of the pickups and one of the Crown Victorias. The trucks are significantly larger than the Crown. My pickups are green rather than red.
