I've had this kit in the stash forever, started it years ago but never finished.  Dug it out after Christmas and stripped the awful paint job, rebuilt as a curbside.  The chrome is not perfect but I touched it up and it looks OK on the shelf.  Just a quick (for me) build to get something completed and keep the motivation going for the other 3 on the bench.  Comments welcome, thanks for looking.

Great finish!

 

All these '60 Desoto posts on the board have me thinking about pulling my ancient started kit out and building it!

Very nice build, if mine I'm building at the moment turns out as good, I'll be pleased ...

Nice job on a rare Mopar! You don't see many Desoto's - real or model anymore. Good work!
