The top is from a 50 Ford.
Hood has been rounded and the grill sunk.
Almost went with the dual headlites from the Ford.
Engine is in the drink..I didn't like the pearl green..
Front grill lip is a work in progress..
Chassis is done..still tweaking the top.

This is where I'm at..white primer on the body and red oxide primer on the top.

That picture with the red top side view makes it look like a Dodge Wayfarer. Sharp looking car you have there...

Thank Man..I got the carb idea from Lyles '50 build.(thanks Lyle)
Once I find my resin Caddy air cleaner I'll paint it Tamiya green with
some gold on the top ribs.
