Man what a difference some creative work can do . i never liked this car but i really can't wait to see where
this one goes .Awesome taillights and a roof so long it should be a surf board for the whole band.
Also digging the Halibrands...

Great work so far

Thanks everyone!
Got the taillight area pretty much done now.Just needs some primer and a little more sanding!
Was thinking about adding some trim around the taillights and down into the rear pan ,to make a blacked out panel.

I wasn't liking the wagon ! Tried a'65 Rivy , El Camino,and convertible. But ended up using the wagon after a little changing.
I filled in the sides acut out quarter windows ,then removed the raised area of the roof in back.I like it much better now.

I really like what you've done to the roof ! It looks great !
Instead of a blacked out panel , why not make it the same color as the roof ? Call me Crazy , but I like the white !

The roof will be red ,but a white taillight panel might be an ideal!

Revell's 55 Chevy Pro Sportsman has a 618 BBC with cool Pontiac valve covers - I am using one on a 64 GTO project now.

I like the look of the "Monkeemobile" you've got going. Cool work on the taillight panel especially.
