Very nice build, very convincing. Did Dad get the base 144 six, or the 170? The latter had much better power.






Dad was proud that he had gotten "the big motor."  However, with only a two speed automatic and the weight of the 4-door wagon, the car did not perform well.  I pushed it hard for two years, though, and it never let me down.

Very nicely done, Stephen.

The only in-progress pictures I have are the two I posted.  Sorry about that...

Wrecker388 -- Good point, I guess.  I just looked at many similar 1988 Chevy pickup promos on EBay, and none of them have mirrors.  If you will supply me the mirrors I need, I'd be glad to install them.

Thanks for your comment.  The custom '60 Mercury grill I used came from my parts box.  When I tried it in position and it fit, I located the Lucas clear headlight lenses and went with that combo.  I regret to say that I don't recall the origin of that grille.  Maybe someone else will recognize it.

Nice work on the body, really coooool stance and wheels.


But, were are the rear lights?


Thanks for your feedback.  The taillights are deeply tunneled, with dark red flat plastic lenses.  They are so deep and so dark that they don't show up well on the pictures.  I am out of town just now, but when I get back I will try to take a better picture of the rear.  If the lenses show up, I will post the new image.  :)
