I like the 2 1967 Chevy vans and the 60's chevy wrecker best .
I never seen a mini lindy ford van ??
they make a 32 ford pickup that looks a lot like the aurora slim line 32 pickup.
I wonder if aurora copied the mini lindy 32 ford pickup ?
they look really similar , I have both of them .

Jim, funny you should mention the similarity of the 32 pickups.
Aurora DID use the Mini Lindy as the main model source for that body.
I canot afford original Aurora 32 ford pickups and many times the resin repros go for too much too.
but, I have converted a few Mini Lindy bodies.
again, I will have to mak some time to get pics and post em

This is a '67 Jeepster Commando from Lindberg. Added screw posts, painted red top black and added chip headlights. Ended up getting the build a bit out of order so once I had the new screw posts in the was not room to replace the original headlights, so I had to use clear window maker which never turns out as nice as I would like - especially when I get in a rush.

I slipped the tire back on the rim after the picture, oops!
