We are extremely excited about the recent launch of TRJ's newest product, the TRJ Special diecast 1932 Ford Coupe. These 1:18 scale models are currently in production and will be ready to ship just in time for the holidays.  Only 2000 will be sold, and each will have a numbered serial plate on the bottom of the gas tank. 

Just over 22,000 Deluxe coupes were built by Ford for the 1932 model year. That makes them one of the rarest 1932 Fords ever produced. By the early 1950s, literally hundreds of these coupes were turned into hot rods and lakes racers, which is what prompted TRJ to do their first diecast not only as a 1932 coupe but to emulate a street and racing dynamic. As soon as they got the first sample from GMP it was decided to do a full TRJ studio photo shoot in an effort to provide you with more details of just how accurate these are.

$139.95US + shipping (TBD)

The Rodders Journal Issue # 48

If you missed out we still have a couple of issue 48 left...

Issue #48 Buy now!

The recently completed clone of the Sam Hollingsworth 1957 Chevy Nomad is creating quite a buzz, and we have the complete, in-depth story on this famous custom. This Nomad, known for its candy bronze and gold flamed paint, is beautifully displayed on the newsstand cover of this issue. We photographed it both on location and in the studio, and have included many previously unpublished historical images. In the fourteen pages devoted to this custom clone, we explain the journey that led to creating the new wagon as well as the full history on the original car. Pat Ganahl researched the original build and famous paint job as well as the mysterious saga surrounding its disappearance.
The subscriber cover of TRJ #48 features Emerson Glazer's 1933 Ford Fordor. The accompanying article examines the contradicting elements of this car. On one hand it is a comfortable family sedan, but on the other hand it is still an aggressive, traditionally-inspired Ford hot rod. When Emerson bought this sedan, it was a '70s style yellow street rod. He took it over to Pete Chapouris at So-Cal Speed Shop in Pomona, California and the two developed a plan that brought this Fordor to its current state. This article explains all of the hot rod aesthetics of this car as well as the family-friendly amenities.
