Just finished it up over the weekend. I took a Jada 1/24 white with gray interior '57 Panel, completely disassembled it, painted it inside and out to match the '60 Sedan Delivery detailed it up and put it back together. I then bought the matching trailer to make the set.

Great looking set !

The '57 makes a great tow vehicle ,  very nice work .

- I always thought the Jada diecasts looked a little oversize but yours looks correct ! :)

Did you use a Jada to upgrade the car as well? They've got a nice front bumper and grille, same scale

Pat, I picked it up off of Ebay for less than $20. It is really nice. It's made by Sunnyside.

John, I sure did. The grille/headlights and the rear tail light panel came from a scrap Jada '60 Impala. I'm all the time kitbashing models and diecasts. It's just fun for me to build my dreams lol. ;)  :D
