1957 Ford "Old School" as in Sha-Na-Na

Recommended Posts

Bashed an AMT & Revell & came up with this Old School custom that a guy could have done a D-I-Y in his garage back in the day...see if you can find what parts came from what kit.....Comments Welcome as always

Very cool. I like the Meteor grill. An older guy in high school had a green one very much like this but hardly ever went to class so did not see very often.

Yes, being Canadian I have used the AMT Meteor grill on two projects - a Hardtop built 20 years ago and a Ranchero built 6 years ago

Looks cool. That's my style of custom.

AMT grille, hubcaps, headlights, steering wheel with horn ring, valve covers, air cleaner, and lakes pipes. Lakes pipes are not from the '57 kit, they look like the ones from the '62 Pontiac custom.

Looks like the wheels, hubcaps and headlights are from the same kit. Taillights from the custom 62 Tbird?
