Done. Not my best but it will do.





Black bonnet to break up the "Red Barren" look.






The 215 alloy V8 got some attention & bling too.

I love the early sixties cars. They still retained such individuality.

Nice one Chris!

Seconded. You could tell a cars identity a hundred feet away, now with a few exceptions you have to get close enough to read the badge.

Back then, I could identify almost all cars at night by the configuration of their lights in the rear view mirror. Try that to-day!

Too true on distinctive design of brands.  That said, folks finally realized many vehicles that looked different really shared a majority of parts anyway.  As for the small Olds wagon, nice work, but a contrasting interior (something in a light color) would help set it off as having more character.  I did the same as you with an early Chevy II, red and red, and immediately regretted my choice.  Thanx for a sweet old wagon, reminds me of Arnie Beswick's (Mrs. B's. Grocery Getter) small Pontiac wagon of the early '60s.

Roger that Sir, this is why I really love the older cars, no jelly moulds back then and each vehicle had it's own identity and personality, these days they're just like the robots that build them...
