just off the bench today,its an All American Models Resin trans kit I was going to use the 60 ford as a donor but it would have taken way too much modifying to make it work so I used a 57 Ford, I changed the interior to accommodate Bucket seats from a T Bolt and a parts box Console with photo etch guages. I also ordered the replacement white wall tires for the revell 50 Olds but used them on this with parts box wheels.

I love Rancheros! This is the only 59 Ford I like. Is that Testors green?

  It looks good to me.

 

Thanks,Eric

Very nice job!!! The colors suited the car very well, and the Y-Block V8 is dead on for the car.

Thumbs up!!!

That is a beauty Dave! I love the colors on it! I'm guessing that you used the AMT '57 Ford chassis under it? Very nice work!
