Thanks guys for the kind words about this projects. I will update the Glidden Fairmont car soon,painting the red and blue stripes on the body right now.

It has been a lot of fun building these two cars and am looking forward to finish them up compleatly, I am even thinking of doing the Lee Hunter car...IF I can scrape the depleted hobby funds for another Fairmont body!!!

I went back and reread your opening paragraph. I don't know how much of a rush you're in to totally finish this build, but I am working on a Zephyr PE grille insert if you have any interest in it...


Hi Scott,

That sound great, please let me know when they are ready and knowing your quality work and attention to detail I am pretty sure it will be another great offering from your already great parts lineup.

The painted Glidden car, I choose to paint all the color lines in the body...not "great" paint job...but I like very much the result, still have to fix a little blue dot on the engine hood, but apart from that it turn nice....I think!!!, nothing is glued in place yet including the door.

I hope a forum member can help with a little info about the Bob Glidden race team of 1978 seasson...of which I am almost finish with the undefeted Fairmont car show above. My very good friend and vintage pro stock information mentor, Norbert L. gave me as a gift one of the long Galaxie LTD. trailer kit, so I can do the Glidden race transporter as a back drop for my Fairmont. The problem is that I can not find a picture of the 1978 seasson trailer, only the 1979 which is painted in the Dodge Aspen color configuration, red/blue lines and "Glidden race cars" in blue letters and the latter 1980/81 all blue Motorcraft one.

Do anyone have a picture of the 1978 seasson Glidden transporter, any help will be greatly appreciated.
