I gave it dents and rust and body rot. I detailed the slant 6 too. I made the hood springs and notice the special AM radio antenna. I was able to hide the defects in the chrome bumpers and where they were attached to the tree with rust. I did use some PE and BMF too. Spark plugs are in the correct firing order. I even won some small contests with it. Non model builders like this model too. There's couple of WIP shots on there too.

Exciting see the engine with the body off. Alternator is beautifully finished, engine great! Right side view of body (passenger side) looks the best, with bit of missing trim. For me, the hardest thing to make look old are chrome bumpers. The chrome is too shiny and I always wondered if a "mist coat" of flat clear paint would make a difference. On the other hand, when I've seen "satin chrome" finish on some kits, that doesn't look right either. Hard to solve the dilemma! Thanx for a great job on a tired car.

I agree that the work and effort gone into this model is outstanding but it always makes me wince seeing a vehicle in that state. Great work by you!!

Awesome build! The detailing and the weathering are spot on and beautiful. That off colour replacement front fender is just the right touch

I like it Mike.

The odd coloured wing. the missing trim, the rust..... it all looks great!
