This is one that I've had lying around for ages but only just got round to finishing (as a kerbside as I'd lost some of the engine parts). It's the Revell kit with Replicas & Minatures Buick headlights & sidetrim. The tyres are from the Galaxie 46 Chevy kit with Modelhaus Lancer hubcaps. Tailights are from the Revell 32 Ford 5 window and the paint is Zero Plum Crazy Pearl.
