1967 Plymouth Belvedere 4 door Sedan 426 HEMI original

Recommended Posts

I've been posting pictures of this model during building, and now it's ready to be shown here Under Glass.

I have made these modifications:

The Body got four doors and a new roof. 

Scratch built parts are the front seat, exhaust manifolds, some door handles, antenna, fuel cap, air cleaner, mud flaps, shifter, door mirrors, hood emblem, arm rests, one wind shield wiper, licence plates. The hub caps are made by a very talented and respected finnish model builder. I just painted them and added the valves. 

Feel free to comment. As said earlier, this model presents the only factory built HEMI 1967 Plymouth Belvedere 4 door sedan, and that one of a kind vehicle was brought to Finland when it was new. And here it still is, under maintenance. Hopefully it will some day roar again with all the 426 cid power.

Fantastic work. The color really suits the car, and the exhaust exiting just before the rear tire, kind of gives up that's not grampa's Plymouth.

Thanks everybody for your kind comments. This model was a fun to build. And as Classicgas asked, the roof is made of Evergreen plastic, no other models roof was used at all. Some putty was used to smooth the desingn.

I followed your build on this and your 4 door conversion is perfect. The entire build is detailed and looks just like the 1:1 .

I had to go back to see what work you had done. Excellent craftsmanship. Your attention to detail is impressive. I like your work on this engine. It mad me wonder if there is a flat black with a texture available for doing the valve covers. I think that would take this up a notch.

Thanks again! It would be great to have some texture to those matte black valve covers, but I'm not sure how to make that happen. It surely would look even better then. Also I think (and maybe someone else too) that the antenna may be too thick, but that is much easier to fix.

Very nice! Different and interesting, and obviously a labor of love. What's on your workbench next?
