Hi Dean,

F&F did a '55 Caribbean years ago as I have one. Since Ed passed away a while ago, I don't know if his son carries it anymore as it was a very limited production even then.

Maybe if you can locate the '55, you can update it to a '56 as I think the only changes were the fins, (not much) the grille, and the peaked fenders around the headlights.

Hmmmmmm..............combing through the 'net as I type this I ran across this web page from Resin Realm...........Check it out, it may lead you to a model of that '56!

Hope this helps!

Thanks Bill! Lots o'good info there.

Wow ... hunt down a "Rare" OOP resin kit and convert it. <shudder>

I have a friend who owns a 56 Packard Executive, he's seen my work and >still< wants me to build a model fo his car. I'm pretty sure he's not aware of issues involved. I'll see if he wants me to pursue this or not.

This is probably one of those "Mr. Obvious" questions ... any idea how to contact Ed Jr? I know he's casting, but I have no idea what he called his new company.

Dean, I'm not sure what the name is now that his son runs it..................maybe if you contact Jerry at Resin Realm, he may be able to give you his email or his website if he has one.
