Curtis Turner's 1956 Ford - NASCAR

Recommended Posts

This is another build of a Curtis Turner race car. I decided awhile back to build models of cars Curtis Turner raced. No other reason than the fact he has a cool first name I can relate to. I think this is the 4th or 5th Curtis Turner model I've built. This a model of the 1956 Ford he raced during the 1956 NASCAR Season. He started 13 races, winning at Darlington and 4 more races with top 10 finishes.

Paint is MM Classic White and ScaleFinishes Ford M Regency Purple. Decals are from Gofer Racing.

Thanx for lookin'

Very cool Curt!  I always like the subject material you choose.  Curtis was one of the superstars of his era.

Man, that is cool!  I don't know much about NASCAR but I love the aggressive look this has with the wide wheels and tires and killer stance!  Plus the fact that it's a "Customline" hardtop rather than a Fairlane, along with that color combo, adds to the coolness quotient!
