Full custom '62 Chrysler

Recommended Posts

Really neat chop on that top. Those bodies always looked the best

painted a warm gold and covered in thick coats of clear.

Really impressive how well that body style responded to the top chop. Loving this!

1. I'm not a big custom guy. In most cases I prefer the stock proportions and trim.

2. I really like this one. The mods are subtle and could easily have been stock had a different designer been on the job that day. The top chop is particularly good. Well done.

Pretty much what I was going to say.

The tail lamp design looks nice as it follows the basic body design. With the Blue color fade the roof has a better looking flow onto the quarter panels.

OK, so ,, 

Got the '67 Pontiac done. 

Time to get back to work on this puppy.

Ya know, I've never been really happy with the paint on this car. It seems to be missing something, even after I foiled the trim and put the windows in. <_<

I really think it needs a bit more paint. ;):D

Been working on the interior.I ground the seat inserts out with my Dremmel and cut the inserts from the door panels with the back of my X-acto and a razor saw.

The new pleated inserts are 1/2 round rod glued to thin sheet stock.  I'll also be putting a new floor in that's a bit deeper than how the part was cast.

Great project Steve. Can't wait to see it done. 

Your custom body mods look great and really accentuate the car's original lines. Paint job is sweet too.

You don't see enough custom/modified early 60's Mopars. I think they make great platforms for this kind of build.

Stunning!  The body mods are tastefully done, but really make a big difference and that paintjob with the fades is just gorgeous.  Great build!

Finally got around to doing the tail lights. Just shaped from red sprue with clear backup lights from clear sprue.

I've also been working on the interior but not enough progress on that for pics yet.

Very nice! Great body work! I like the light treatments - front and back.

The taillights look terrific, along with everything else about this build, Steve.   Maybe I missed it, but what wheels and tires are you running?

I haven't said yet John as I think soon as I unveil my idea it will be copied and I want to be first with the "formula" for the wheels. 😈

Flawless bodywork, tasteful customizing, chopped top and pastel pearl paint ,,,, that has to be a Richard Zocchi car. 😎👍

Him , John D'Agostino  and Rick Dore are my favorite customisers.

Agreed!

I really like what you are doing here! I also liked the Astro Supremes you showed at the beginning of this thread but I'm curious about what kind of rolling stock you will choose in the end!
