Thanks Todd! This is an old AMT "Junior Craftsman" kit I bought off of ebay a year or so ago. Pretty much the same as a "Customizing Kit", only less detail! :)  These old '59 Ford annuals & junior craftsmans are still pretty easy to find on ebay, & not too un-Godly expensive. I believe I paid around $40.00 for this one in assembled but like new condition. Nice thing about the junior craftsman kits is they were a snap kit. NO GLUE!!!  :D                          Steve

I'll have to look for those then. I know there are several bodystyles available in Resin, but man are they expensive. I had a '59 Fairlane 500 2dr post for a while, but had to sell it when I lost the storage space. Dad bought a Sunliner new in '59. One day I might get around to building all three.

Wow. Brings back a flood of memories. We had this exact model and color combo when I was a kid. First car I remember in the family. Memories of going squirrel hunting with dad, and remembering the T-bird fender ornaments frosted over and looking like silver dollars. When dad traded it to my uncle for a '60 Chevy pick up, I cried. Didn't talk to him for a week.  It had a 292 and the 3 speed auto, and the factory stainless skirts too.

 

Excellent job man. What kit did you use?

Yes, I could see a farmer repowering an old farm truck with a Perkins from a Massey Ferguson combine!

I wonder if the trim will be separate? Ranger/XLT, Explorer, and Custom side trim and tailgate panels are all different. Apologies if this has already been addressed in the previous 29 pages, but I read the post religiously and don't remember seeing any answer.beltline molding, but no

 

EDIT** I see the test sprues have what appear to be the Ranger/XLT beltline molding. Based on this, I would assume the appropriate tailgate panels will be included for at least the Ranger/XLT
