  1. #1 model citizen added a post in a topic Part from the Lindburg Color Me Gone kit   

    If that doesn't work for you I have 1 from a stock '64 330 that looks like the part or would be easily modified to work.

    Yeah, Iowa sucks for modelers. I'm stuck in SE Iowa. No clubs & the nearest hobby shop, 35 miles from here, sucks. Fortunately there is Hobby Lobby in the same town as the hobby shop. The nearest decent hobby shop is 2 hrs away in Des Moines.
    So welcome aboard! The best place to be if you like building model cars!

    iamsuperdan is a great trader. Would trade with him again. Thanks, Dan!

    I was able to order Duplicolor Chrysler green at a local auto parts store for about 1/2 the cost of the MoPar brand turquoise that I could find on line. I'm pretty sure the Chrysler green is the same as the turquoise. 
    I have an old, OLD can of TRW brand Chrysler green left over from a 1:1 repaint of a 383 as well. It looked like a new, correct color engine when done.
     As far as I know Chrysler never used a "green" for their engines (at least not post WWII). This color tends to change over time (due to heat?) so the new paint doesn't always look quite the same...

    Very nicely done. Great save, too!

    It would seem the Imperials could be produced using /modifying the existing 300 tooling. The front clip and I believe chassis & running gear is pretty much Imperial already.

    Very nice. I like the color.

    Very cool! This is the best rear custom treatment I've ever seen on a roundy fendered hump back car! The continental kit flows so nicely between the extended fenders. Very nice! And thankfully its not a lowrider...

    I don't have these parts & don't know if I did the cut & paste correctly on the computer, but if you check page 5 of the thread in this On the Workbench forum it shows & describes a way to make a nearly identical part. These look better than the kit piece & sounds like a simple project. You may want to give it a try. I'm sure the fellow(s) devised this technique would be glad to answer any questions you may have should you need help.

    It was featured on Jay Leno's Garage recently.

    Fantastic! Beautiful!

    Me too! I love those "futuristic ' dashboards that these cars had and would be great for kit bashing customs. Turnpike Cruisers of the late '50s are another of my favorite Mercs.
