This kit was the Lindberg 37 Ford which is the same as the Testors "Smoothster " kit. Not a bad kit really. I made a couple of modifications just trying something different. Added plastic strips at the rear wheel wells and added trim to all the fenders. Also filled the tail lights and drilled out the rear of the body for recessed tail lights. Thanks for looking and as always comments both good and bad are welcome.

Except for the dubious attaching points for the frame pieces, that has to be THE frame to put under a lot of fat fender car models. You did a nice job on it.!!

Really neat, I kind of like the "phantom" skirts, and I really like the chrome trim on the fenders. Nice!
