Ford Fairlane with lifted rear

Recommended Posts

This AMT kit started when I found these jewel things, that looked very much leafspring shackles. So this car was deemed to have its rear end lifted way up. That of course meant finding some big rear tyres. They are Fujimis with widened steels rims. Front wheels are some lowrider tyres. Otherwise pretty much "stock" build.

I really like the personal touches on this model. It's not stuff most people would do to a model, or even think to, but that's why I like it. Nice job.

Really well done model!

Great representation of the classic "stinkbug stance." Those shackles had to be one of the more ridiculous modification fads of the late '60s-'70s. Cars like this were everywhere, but my favorite example is this '73 Fury featured in a crazy sequence in the movie "Thunderbolt & Lightfoot."

Nice photo you added John. Haven't seen that movie. I'll add picture of those shackles I found later.

Very cool build. I'm liking the grime under the hood and that suspension is awesome

Here is the shackles. They could almost be used as exhaust manifold flanges too.
