Retro Rat Rod Roadster!

Brand new this week at is an original hot rod, a 1929 Ford Model A Roadster body on a 1932 Ford frame! Based on the first 'hot rods' that originated out of southern California in the mid-1930's through the late 1940's, this release faithfully reproduces the early days of automotive high performance. And with Harley-Davidson custom paint and badging, this nostalgic, 1/18 hot rod is sure to be a craze!

Take a look at these great kits available at!
