66 Country Squire

Recommended Posts

Here's a few pics of the completed Squire body to be used with the existing Country Sedan parts. I redid the taillights. they were too boxy looking.  Still need to have the decals done. No production release date as of yet. Note the 59 Nomad hiding in the back round.

Beautiful Paul, are you doing the Nomad as well? And what about the '59 Buick flat top I see? I'm drooling.:wub:

Paul:  Beautiful! Please keep us informed on when these will be available. Just ca't get enough of wagons, especially from the sixties and the Fords were the most beautiful. Keep up the great work!!!! Do you have any of your projects ready for sale?

Paul, when will the country sedan be available? I really want to buy one! Would you consider offering the grille by itself?

Thanks! Yes the 59 Nomad will be cast up as well. It builds off the AMT 59 El Camino. It uses the El Camino's opening tailgate and has a rear facing third seat. Detailed photos will be posted once the master is completed. The 59 Buick is a Promolite resin kit I'm building.

Yes I will offer the grill alone. No release date yet. I will start selling kits once I have 10 masters completed. The 59 Nomad will be number 6. # 7 a 57 Chrysler Windsor 2 dr ht, #8 a 57 New Yorker wagon.

I’ve waited decades for a ‘66 Squire Model! I need two kits; one to do our family car, a Sahara Beige with Parchment interior, and a “One that got away” - a Tahoe Turquoise number I saw at Country Classic Cars

I’d like a 57 Chrysler wagon too. Meanwhile I’m enjoying your 70 Colony Park that was Don and Carol’s last hoorah!

Just as a matter of interest - in 1959, the Nomad was an Impala series, four door, six passenger, two seat wagon only. That model was never available with the third seat although I suspect that the right dealer could have snuck a nine passenger Nomad out but I have never heard of such a critter. The Kingswood was the 9 passenger, four door three seat model that shared the Bel Air series upholstery and trim. The Brookwood ( Biscayne series ) was the only 2 door wagon offered and of course, it also came as a two seat, six passenger wagon. Having said that, your Nomad looks good.

Way cool. Looks great. I just wish I hadn't traded the 66 Fairlane wagon I built. Using the AMT kit.

That looks really good! I don't know if the Ford is interesting enough for me (Nice car and great job on mastering it though!), but I'm interested in that '59 Wagon. I understand that you probably don't know yet the exact price, but I'd like to know what price range we are approximately talking about?

Thanks for the input. Yes Gary, it was strange Chevrolet did not offer a 3 seat wagon in their top line series as Ford and Plymouth did, I suspect they lost some sales because of that. I'm doing the kit so the third seat can be removed and a flat floor panel can be swapped in place if desired. Sorry I can't give a price point out but they will be priced to compete with other quality resin kits.
