Here's a 61 Falcon that I just finished, trying to duplicate one I did waaay back when. The car is pretty much a copy, using the Kustom Grille from the AMT 53 Ford Truck, 57 T-Bird rear bumper,De-chroming,etc.The old one was AMT Candy Green Lacquer,This is HOK but it pretty much looks like my old one from somewhere back in the sixties!

Really sharp Bill, I love the green. I have to ask, did it sit that low back in the 60s?

There were cars that low in the 50's for sure but not much ! :shock:

Not like the front of the falcon, but like the rear ! I'm always amazed those cars were driven ! the drivers were real die harder ! :lol:

Maybe not quite that low but I've always tried to get everything I build as low as possible. Just a personal preference thing ! Thanks for the Compliment !

Cool! I have the Lancer grille from that same F-100 kit ready to go into my Ranchero... nice to see somebody finish one.
