Bill Stroppe Racing was big back in the 50's and 60's running Mercurys.  This is my take on Parnelli Jones' ride #15.  AMT Craftsman kit, I built it as a curbside.  Cady decals, layering them really blows.  Hope you like, comments welcome.

Looks great! I never thought the shade of blue wold be this light, but as it matches the Cady decals, well I guess it was!

Nice Vintage Stock Car. You did excellent job with it, this is something that should be seen more often. Nice paint and decal work. Perfect finishing over all, thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all the nice comments!  I'm lately really into these 'big iron' builds from the 50s-60s.  On the bench now is a 70 Monte Carlo that will be Bobby Allison's 'Coke Machine'.
