1961 Lincoln restoration

20 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Finally...one of my own projects...finished!  

Doing kits for other guys has left very little time for my own stuff.  I pulled this Lincoln from the to-do pile last winter.  Being a simple curbside I figured I had a fighting chance of finishing it within a year.

Paint is Tamiya TS-42 Light Gunmetal; not the sort of color I would normally choose for a '61-vintage subject, but when I spotted a 1:1 on the 'net in a similar color I was sold.  I ditched the wide-whites for some more elegant-looking thin-line whitewalls which were just being introduced in the 1961 model year.

This kit was also a test-bed for my Molotow chrome markers.  I used the markers on the interior chrome, body scripts and the wheel-lip moldings  They won't replace BMF entirely, but in some instances they came in real handy.

Love the color.  Early 60's Lincolns with the suicide doors are so classy.

Excellent job, Mike - you were lucky to find one in such good shape.

I have a couple I'm working on now; the 'vert will have the same interior as yours but with a pale yellow body like the one in the brochure.

Love this. Suicide-door Connies were the height of "modern" American luxury.
