Combined back half of Ford phaeton with '32 chevy roadster, added correct moldings. Extensive mods to the up-top to duplicate the Chevy item. Chrome wheels with "51 Chevy caps. Scratch built,lowered front axle with posable steering. Tamiya metallic blue. Interior - Testors leather. 350 chevy engine. I didn't go all out on the engine detailing,,,,I got lazy.
