Hi

Here is another one I build last time. It is build from a Ertl DieCast Bank. I removed the ugly yellow/green colour and painted it new in black.
New chrome trim on its sides, new wheels and tires, new windshild wipers, additional fog lights, new exhaust pipes and some more in the interior I build.

Very cool! Great conversion work. Looks like something a Government "revenuer" would be driving in TN in the early '50s. To chase those moonshiners!

I was thinking it was the other way around.....business coupes were always popular with the 'shine runners, because of the massive trunk space.

Regardless of who is behind the wheel in your world, Peter, I like it a bunch. 8)

hi peter. that is one beautiful olds. i had a 1-1 back in '68. it had a flathead 6 cylinder in it. it was also black with a black interior. just in case you want to build another one, there is a comapny called r & r resin that makes quite a few of the body styles of the olds. again excellent workmanship
