  3. She's My Little Deuce Coupe

    Thanks Tony Thanks Art - Sort of like your model car show at the LA Roadster Show, more people will know about it the second time around so I am confident it is going to be well attended. Be that as it may, its going to be fun.
  4. Chopped Top 1965 Riviera

    All boxes checked. I give it an A+
  5. She's My Little Deuce Coupe

    Thanks Mattias. Deuce days is only a few days away so looking forward displaying this model.
  6. The count down has started. A full ferry load of hot rods from SoCal north are scheduled to arrive on Thursday afternoon. One of the BC mainland entrants is going to park his almost completed Deuce Roadster pickup overnight in my carport. The weather for the weekend is forecast to be fabulous. Its going to be an awesome event. Wish you could be here.

    Always great to see a classic posted. I really like your color selection. A Duesy is still on my list of want to builds.

    What is so cool about the Hot Rod cover photo is that the photo used on the Beach Boys album cover came from the same photo shoot by Hot Rod magazine stall photographer Eric Rickman. Big Daddy Roth was at this shoot and offered his red jacket to add more color. Most of the custom work was done by the Alexander Brothers in Detroit. After Chili moved to LA, the chop and final paint job where done at Barris Kustoms. The blower was added around this time. It is fantastic that the car was reacquired and restored by the Catallo family. Like the lyrics in the song - They got the pink slip daddy.

  13. She's My Little Deuce Coupe

    This is a replica of the car that appeared on the cover of the Beach Boys Little Deuce Coupe record album. It was also known as Chili Cataloo’s Silver Sapphire BODY The resin body and custom nose came from Hendrix Mfg. Co. I had to make up lower side wings from sheet styrene, make a firewall and create the rear tube “grill” and taillights. Paint is Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue. Barris photoetched crest from Replicas & Miniatures INTERIOR Interior tub is from the Revell 3-W Coupe and was sectioned. Foot boxes were recessed between the frame rails. [2nd owner made this medications] Made up the square button stuff pattern by scribing and filing styrene sheet. Buttons are pinheads. Dash was modified for extra gauges. Steering wheel came from AMT 32 Victoria Shifter sourced from AMT 25 T CHASSIS Frame from Revell Deuce with floor, front horns and fuel tank removed. Z’d in back frame height FRONT SUSPENSION 37 Ford tub axle from AMT 25 T using spring in front of axle so shocks needed to be reversed and swapped side to side Steering used pieces front Revell 29/30 Ford, AMT 25 T and Replicas & Miniatures REAR SUSPENSION Rearend from Revell Deuce with input housing and back cap from the Revell Beatnik Bandit kit to make it look Oldsmobile Transverse leaf spring, shocks and radius rods added [Only photo of rear suspension I could find was of Danbury Mint Diecast !!] FRONT BRAKES Kinmont front brakes from Replicas & Miniatures REAR BRAKES AMT Ala Kart FRONT AND REAR WHEELS AND TIRES White wall front tires and chrome wheels from AMT Ala Kart. Slicks from Revell Tire Set DRIVETRAIN Oldsmobile engine from the Revell Beatnik Bandit kit 6-71 Blower assembly from Revell Willys Street Rod [Beatnik Bandit had a 4-71] Carburetors Revell 29 Ford Headers are aluminum tube TRANSMISSION La Salle transmission from Replicas & Miniatures This is my final Deuce build leading up to Deuce Days in Scale July 21 in Victoria BC. Over the past year and half or so I have completed 8 new Deuce builds, redone 3 previous models and did the initial body modifications on two other Deuces for other modellers to complete.
  14. Silver Sapphire Little Deuce Coupe

    I am getting ready for the final paint job which will be Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue. I have primered the body parts with Tamiya Fine White Primer. After masking off the roof insert I then applied coats of Tamiya Pure White. After that I masked off what will be the white scallops with Bare-Metal-Foil. When the blue paint dries and I scrape off the BMF I am hoping I have a body that looks like the Silver Sapphire.
