I found this at Goodwill for $2.99. It was missing the roof, and had one broken fin. The chrome was in great cindition, so I figured it was worth saving from the parts bin. It's painted MCW 59 Cadillac Hampton Green.

Love to see any Jo-Han kit restored properly. That MCW Paint and hue really adds to the authentic look.
Bravo! Fury3

I love it. Any Caddy in kit form is a great find. I went to Goodwill this past Saturday. All I found was a .975 silverware set which I promptly sold for $650 and change to my local coin guy. Time to get mucho kits, paints and tools.

Looks great with the flattop! Love the color! You guys must have some pretty darn "good" goodwills there. All I ever find in my local ones is a bunch of nothing!

I just got one of these 59 JoHan Caddys from a long time friend. The only things missing are the chrome bullets that fit into the fins.

That vista roof looks great on the Fleetwood, much better than the stock roof. It looks like it came off of a JoHan 59 Olds 4drHT.
