1955 Pymouth Savoy for Texas Historical Commission

Recommended Posts

I was asked to build a model of the Plymouth Savoy that famed Texas Representative and Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn drove in the late 50's.  I had a great time with this 1/32nd scale diecast rebuild.  I had to strip the car, cut the doors down to make it look like a two-door, hand-fab a v-8 from putty and repaint it in nail polish.  I put it in a nice display case as a finishing touch.  It was really great working with the Historical Commission. Even though they weren't model builders, they really appreciated the amount of work that went into this replica.

 

The pics are the real 1:1 car, the signature models diecast I used to build the car, the interior after repaint and BMF and a couple views of the finished car.
