I havent posted many pics of my finished rides since I`ve joined here and figured its about time I did. I`ll start with the one I call Dirty Vicky.

 

Its an AMT 32 Vicky I built a few years ago with a few mods. A sectioned body with a chopped top. I didnt want to Z the frame so I reworked it in the front to give it a little more swoop. The motor is out of the AMT 53 Ford flipnose p/u with carb and velocity from the bottom of a parts box. Tires and wheels front and rear are from the 56 Ford Victoria 3n1.

 

As a lot of you, I build all my models as how I would build them if it was a real ride but of all the builds I`ve done, this is the one I would bring to life if I could. Enjoy

I dig it!  Looks like you had a lot of fun building this one and still having fun with it.   You just can't beat the nostalgia of old AMT '32s. These are the type of cars I love to see at 1:1 car shows.

Thanks guys. I did have a good time building it. Even though its a relatively simple build its my favorite one on the shelf. I look at it sometimes and think, "man I can only imagine how nasty some thing like this would be on the street".

 

Its the original grill Wheaton. I just gave it a light wash, added solid black paint in select spots then gave it a light spray with a plastic prep which dulls and crackles the chrome.

Jeepers Adam, that's got attitude. I think that crazy interior 'wallpaper' is the first time I've ever seen anything like that. Very original. Daring, but I like it.

The stance on that is perfect! As "dirty" as it is the build looks really good. :)

Hahaha, geez I must have did a good job if ShinyJim even likes it.

 

I cant take credit for the idea Luna. I saw this done in a 1:1 34 Ford coupe about 10 years ago. I lost the pics of it or I`d post em up. It was dont up in a salt flat racer style and was to this date the coolest coupe I have ever seen.

 

Thanks all.
