AMT kit, built about 5 years ago. Mostly out of box, except front tyres, wheels, coil and plug leads, traction bars from AMT `64 Mercury Marauder & alluminium tubing tailpipes. Paint is Tamiya Italian Red.

A young bloods street & strip toy.

This is wicked cool! Something you don't see too many of. The engine is spectacular and the color would make any man turn his head. Can't go wrong with a beautiful redhead. ;) Great job!

Nice Ford Steve and very topical for Aussies like you and me. For those outside of Aus, Ford will be closing its car manufacturing plant in Australia.

In profile the full size cars of the era were land yachts! Nice chrome trim and it looks like the actual engine parts of '63, which weren't the best. Fine work overall and thanx for taking the time to do the silver on the interior parts!
