this is the last model i built, about 4 years ago. I sectioned the body, added a Tonneau cover from a 1962 T bird, the interior from a 2005 mustang, Mercedes headlights and frenched tail lights and side exit exhaust. A parts box Chevy big block and Hillborn injector setup. The paint is House of Kolor Lapis blue, and Pegasus Wheels. I used silver solder for the roll bar hoops.

Looks good. I built this a couple of years ago and had horrendous fit issues. What kind of luck did you have?

Was yours the Revell / Monogram kit? That's what this one started out as, but the body was cut into 5 pieces during the sectioning process. The chassis was heavily modified as well to get the low stance and accept air ride type shocks. I have built several of these over the years, Convertibles and sedans with little to no fit issues. I always found them to be a good kit.

Very nice. How did you do the gauge bezels?

The gauges and bezels are the kit pieces from a Jada 05 Mustang kit. The entire interior was taken from that kit and modified to fit. The console was also modified to join the tonneau cover between the seats.

The dash looks great.

Thanks, I was trying to give an old body style a modern street rod look. I'm fairly happy with the results.

Masterful work, in particular the fitting of the T-Bird "tonneau/headrest".  Blue and white classic look!
