'61 Ford Galaxie Styline "curbside"

Been working on this one on and off as I let things sit and dry on other projects. This is also my first attempt at custom body work with putty! I actually used the styline nose out of this kit. Pretty happy with the way it turned out.

First wipe with the putty! Gotta admit it was kinda scary doing this for the first time!

I was digging through some old parts boxes a few weeks ago and found this. I built this when I was a teenager in '94-'95??? Anyways, when I found here all of the glass, suspension, wheels/tires and grill were long gone. The paint was pretty dingy as well. I searched e-Bay for a donor kit and found one! Someone had glued the body together and quit so all of the parts that I needed were still on the parts trees!!!! I spent about an hour on polishing the old paint back out and installed the new parts.Tell me what you guys think!!!!

Restoring some old friends!

30 May 2012 - 03:23 AM

Like I really need to start ANOTHER project before finishing the others I have going! Anyway, the first one here is the '64 Thunderbolt kit. i built this when I was a sophomore in highscool. (1991?) Over time I robbed parts off of it and paint faded and chrome peeled. Seeing the "Pheonix" come back to life got me to thinking. Going to try and do a pro touring type car with this and use my Strada Sports BBS wheels on her!!!!! Just a quick mock up, I picked up another kit to replace the chrome and missing parts as well!!!

The next one is going to be a challenge for me, but this is a sentimental car to me. This belonged to my Dad, he passed away in 1998. He gave me this car when I was a little kid, it wasn't finished but it was painted and needless to say I was not kind to it! Not sure of the brand of it but I know it was from the '70's and was a Boss 302 kit I believe. Anyways, this is all I have left of it now. Been letting it soak in Easy Off for a few days, it's going slowly and I have found that the Street Burner Shelby GT500 kit is pretty close so that is what I will be using for the chassis. Going to try and make this one "functional" and not just cram the wheels and tires up in there for the "curbside model" effect! If anyone has any info or parts please let me know, I will defintely need bumpers, grille and a hood. Thanks!

Started this one a while ago and is turning OK I guess. Would like for some places to be a little more clean but all in all I am satisfied with it. It's for my 6 year old daughter who wanted me to build her a pink car. I have always loved this car anyways! Comments and suggestions welcome!!!!
