The differences, especially the grills, are major and noticeable to anyone with eyes.

It will surely be noticeable to the guy who actually owns the real truck.

The differences are important to the owner of a '38 model like me.

To the general public, it's another truck!

This is interesting ... but ...

Since this post is primarily about a "model" of a 37/38 truck, and not an actual truck, suggest this post be moved to the Spoon and a note posted to the "Moderated" new poster about the change.

Admittedly, I had to go back and check and then saw it was a model truck!

We had another request last week about some discussion on "earlier trucks" and have been contemplating that request. I mistakenly thought this was similar to that one and that initial request bumped up one notch.

But ... on this one ... not the same. Gonna move to the Spoon and I'll alert the OP ... Maybe he got what he needed from all the suggestions and he's hard at work on his model truck! wink Maybe he'll post a picture or two of his work or what he ended up with. pix

Maybe

Nice model. It wasn't until I saw the model in front of the picture of the 38 that I noticed the positioning of the headlights is different from 37 to 38. The 37 looks to be quite a bit higher on the core support than the 38. I never noticed that before.

The model was originally a 37 2 door coupe car. I couldn't find any 37 or 38 truck models anywhere, so I made my own.
So don't expect this to be an accurate 37 truck.

That 37 style headlight positioning looks kinda like the old guy with his pants pulled up to his armpits. grin
Not my style, BTW. wink
