The customer supplied technical drawings and photos of his personally restored 1931 Mail Truck are going to be a great help.
Just like the real thing, it starts with the chassis.
Making the floor and walls of the box compartment is next.
Once the individual parts are prefabbed, assembling the box is quick and easy.
Double check placement with the drawings then attach the box to the chassis.
Creating the engine cover and grill detail.
After weeks of work, it is really starting to come together.
A Ferro custom made copper 1931 Mail Truck Weathervane!
Right down to the security window grate and brass padlock on the door!
She’s pretty, but built strong too.
“We are so thrilled with the weather vane.
We take it along to our shows and display it with the mail truck.”
