1960-61 Falcon semi-pro touring restoration
Posted 20 November 2012 - 03:46 PM
Under the hood:
A little bit of history: I started off with this 1960 Falcon windowless $20 glue bomb a few years back.
After getting the paint stripped off, I realized the roof was too warped to save.
So I grafted another roof on and finally ended up dropping the whole thing over a lengthened Monogram '92 Mustang chassis. The '61 grille was made using the MicroMark photo-etch kit. (I'm saving the '60 grille for another Falcon project.) Paint is Tamiya clear red over a charcoal automotive laquer. Wheels & tires from the parts box.
Thanks for looking - comments & questions welcome.

I found one with interior, chassis pan, and front/rear custom pieces. No chrome, windows or wheels. I'll be raiding a Ranchero kit for the missing parts except the rear window (the one in your last picture). Yours has the look I'm going for.

Do you have some more info or close up picture of the grill ?
