I have the same model painted with TS-54. It's a sharp looking color on a Mustang!

Whatcha gonna do for a chassis Mike? That kit comes with a lump of plastic that resembles a chassis if you've jabbed yourself in the eyes a couple of times.

The 1966 Ford Mustang Hardtop/Coupe is one of my favorite models. Can't wait to see the turnout!

My plan is to build this one basically OOB and add some detail to the engine and change the wheels and tires. This kit is from old tooling so the chassis is what it is...almost promo style with minimal detail. That doesn't bother me much as long as I can paint detail the chassis to my liking. I am not trying to build a contest model, just a representation of a car I once saw with a few changes to suit my soul. Sometimes I wonder if my builds bog down due to all the extra details I add which sometimes slows down the build. I just want to build a few kits now without too much fuss and bother. Just get it built and looking good! I'll save the extra detailing for other kits like my '59 Caddy.

I can understand that Derick. I too, wished I had pictures of all my cars over the years, but many of them have disappeared somewhere along the way.
I detail painted the Torque Thrust wheels and picked out a set of tires from the kit. The tires are the Goodyear L60-15's.

I have a soft spot for these cars. It was the first car I bought when I emigrated from England to Canada in 1966... brand new! 289 V8, auto, am radio, sautern gold (I think that's what ir was called) with a black vinyl interior. Loved it for 2 years until I traded it for a 1968 highland green fastback... just like the Bullet car. Wish I still had that one!
I'm looking forward to following this one Mike.

John, I have about 25 blue painted models in my collection of about 200 or so models.
Jamie, I did not prime the body. Just to move things along, I cleaned the body and painted it when it was dry.

The engine looks great and a very nice job on the chassis.................
