pictures of 1983-85 Thunderbird interiors, seats etc

Hi everyone, 

 

I am building a 1985 Sunny King Ford NASCAR. 

 

I would like to check any available interior pictures as reference. I was particularly interested in the seat, and what they looked like in the real thing. I'm not sure that the kit seat is a true representation of what a seat in one of those NASCARs looked like. 

 

thanks in advance, everyone.

New member introduction

27 October 2012 - 06:04 PM

Hi everyone,

I did a quick search to see if there was a pinned thread for introductions but didn't see one, so I thought I would say hi. Apologies if there is and I have missed it.

I'm Chris, 38 from Brisbane Australia. I thought I would check this forum out after watching some of Dr Cranky YouTube videos.

Being an eager student and builder of all types of modelling, the skill sets in this hobby of ours is so diverse that I find building different things is the best way to learn stuff. I love looking at worn model cars, but I also love the look of a nice drag car or NASCAR. I would dearly love to learn how to fabricate chassis etc, that stuff is awesome to see come to life. I hope to mesh my diorama building with some cars one day. I also have an Italeri Australian Road train Prime mover in my stash that I want to build.

I also have a 1/1 scale passion for cars and motor racing which I think almost goes hand in hand with model cars.

Anyway, just saying Gday. I hopefully have posted the pics properly below.
cheers Chris
