    Ed Fluck gave this to me. Somebody painted the color and did not like the paint job so I wet sanded it a little and clear coated it

    I think Ed is charging 18.00 but, you need to email him for the price. Sorry I don't do the reverse rake......... I have a reputation to uphold.

    50 Olds paint, Tuck and roll
    Got some paint on the Olds, Black golds BC265 white solid base with PBC46S Kopper Pearl with Dupli-Color silver flake roof. Ed Fluck at Drag City Castings just cast a new tuck and roll interior for this kit. I got one of the first ones around and it is incredible! 2 door panels with separate door handles and arm rests. Rear seat and front seat. I have some separate shots of the castings

    55 Chevy hardtop
    This was a drag racing slot car body I made and I am converting it back to a model car. Curbside, just mocked up the tires and wheels

    update 11/5


    I have the Olds in primer and I flaked the roof. I am not sure which way I am going. I am thinking black with silver flake roof with red and white tuck and roll










    enjoy!

    50 Olds mild custom
    I am not an Olds guy but; I bought one on a whim. Nice tooling minimal clean up on the body. I was missing a few trees on mine but, Revell send out my missing stuff promptly. I am using 57 Corvette wheels and tires with the "ARTERAKE" added Bob Dudek side pipes, Spots, shaved hood,trunk and doors. I don't like the way the fender trim spreads into the headlights so I shaved it back to looks like it stops on the fender. I also shaved off the taillight holes and will be using a small taillight on the rear. This will be a curbside car no motor. Thats it so far

    66 Batmobile
    I actually built something. It's a snap kit! I lowered it, painted a few details. I actually added red piping to the seats and after I stuck in the batman and robin figures you can't see them.













    enjoy!

    I had to buy my own too. I only had enough money for a 3 speed not enough for a krate. The fastback bikes you have you are correct on the years. You can tell by the style of the shifter which changed slightly every year
