Just what the headline says. Doesn't matter whether it's a car or truck, just has to be a 1954 Dodge. I don't normally do cars, but I have this crazy diorama in mind. Did a search on line, can't ascertain whether anyone has turned out such a model or not. Anyone know of such a beastie? Thanks.

Never heard of one. Never heard of anyone wanting one.

Maybe such a thing has been done in 1/43 or HO scale.

Ther seems to be a 1/43 die cast from Brooklin Models: https://www.rmtoys.co.uk/products/brook ... onvertible.
Perhaps a Dodge Power Wagon would be easiest to find in different scales. I don't think they changed much during the years.

Thanks. A little pricey for what I have in mind, maybe I'll just keep it in the back of my head until the Modeling Gods call me home. 😄

I was going to use it to make a wee diorama of the Frank Zappa song Joe's Garage:

It wasn't very large
There was just enough to cram the drums
In the corner over by the Dodge
(It was a '54 with a mashed up door)
And a cheesy little amp
With a sign on the front said "Fender Champ"
And a second-hand guitar
It was a Stratocaster with a whammy bar

It would also require scratching an amp and a Stratocaster, so maybe it's best if my meager skills are denied the opportunity.
