In Topic: pictures of 1983-85 Thunderbird interiors, seats etc

This is from a Monte Carlo of that vintage, but they were all very similar.



Thanks for those pics Tommy - it is one of the most difficult things to find, is reference photos of old NASCARs.. cheers mate


Hello Chris....The pictures Tommy posted are absolutly correct.  You can use the seat out of a Monogram Lumina kit.  Other than the seat the interior of these kits are very accurate.  I think by 1985 Dale Earnhardt and maybe Richard Petty were only ones using the seat that comes with the T-Bird kits.


Good luck with your build, Post some pictures when you get it finished.



Hi Vernon, the build has become a much bigger project than I expected, or honestly, wanted, but as with most modelling things, we seem to get easily carried away! I have now opened the boot (or the trunk) and I am working on scratch-building some new springs for the suspension; I am waiting for plastic stock to arrive from Hobbylinc. Then I need to find a 4mm & 5mm hollow punch.

I will post pics. I am trying to take progress shots, so I might post those up.

That's a 58-59 chevy front clip, same as the bed.

HI Bill, 


I have just gone through the entire thread and I have to say that there are real cars on the road and on race tracks that are not built with this level of engineering, precision and detail. I am in complete awe of your work. 


That engine freakin awesome. Does it start?  :D It looks like it would.

thanks Doc for the video! 


talk about diorama possibilities! Loved the front clip (Chevy or maybe a Dodge, not too sure) sitting in the back of a pick up at 1.56! 


Is that vid from Rocket Silo Doc?
