Here is another restoration that I got from Ebay. I stripped the paint & re-sprayed with HOK Cocoa Pearl.

Nice job - it looks right. It's great to see all the love the 67-69 T-Birds are getting lately. They're one of my favorite cars.

Looks almost like my old T-bird - I think mine was just a little bit lighter color outside is all.  Of course, I didn't have wheels like that on it, but it looks good with 'em.  Thanks for bringing back some fond memories for me.

I gotta agree with Harry, the choice of wheels for this is fantastic! I think that the combo of both the color and those wheels set this 'bird way above anything that I have seen, and I'm not much of a fan of the big T'birds. Really nice job Ron!

That's a great looking build. What a lovely roof line without padded vinyl top and landau bars to clutter it up..............

Thank you so much for all the great comments. I bought this from a lady on Ebay who's dad had passed recently. She said it was his favorite kit. I wanted to do it up right in his memory. I guess I did ok with it.

Very nice build, the color really makes it!  I have a few T-birds from this era to build, I need to get to it!
