Therapy '66 Ford Fairlane

Recommended Posts

This is a commission build I did over last summer for a gentleman's 50th birthday. The Malibu in some of the pics is also a commission build I did for this guys friend. Both of the real cars travel to various shows in New England so, if you see them around you may see the models with them. Feel free to ask them about the builds. It's a cool story. Anyway, on to the model. I based it on AMT's '66 Fairlane 427. I notched the rear bumper and made custom exhaust. I modified the rocker moldings and added wheels and tires from Revell's '62 Chevy kit. I also photo reduced the plates and side emblems. I also made a custom front bench seat using the rear seat from a donor kit. The paint is a custom match of Acapulco Blue acrylic enamel. First pic is the real car this is modeled after. All in all, it was a fun build. Would love to do one for myself someday.

Both beautiful builds. I can see why they had you build models of their pride and joys.

The car is awesome. Don't care about the wheels, tires and brakes, but it's supposed to be a replica of the 1:1, and that was a complete success. The 427 R-Code lightweight hood is a nice add the guy did to the car to make it look like one of the actual 57 R Code 427s made by Ford to drag racers. The originals were only available in Wimbledon White, had almost no accessory whatsoever, and the hood was fiberglass, having no hinges. It was kept in place solo by the four pins!!
