This is my project sour apple. I've been working on it for over a year now it's 80 percent done besides the body which my dog turned into a chew toy. The frames is from a 1932 ford and all detailed with brake lines, fuel lines, fuel filter, scratch built shocks and hand pin stripping. The engine is a 1959 Cadillac motor painted with a candy green over silver base. Wheels are off a 1957 Chevy painted emerald green with chrome ford caps, the rear axal is off a 1957 Chevy bel air. I've tried to keep everything as if the car was a late 50s early 60s show car. Hope you guys enjoys

Got a 1930 jimmy flintstone body in the mail today. Took a little bit of work but got the body fit to the chassis and the roof section cut out.

Favorite detail is the green apple shifter.

What kit is the dash from?
