66 GT350H- Ivy Green

Recommended Posts

My collection lacks good Mustangs. I have the AMT 67 Shelby, which is a nice kit and the Revell 68 GT, which didn’t come out very well.  I plan on getting the new Revell Boss 302 when it comes out, but with Revell being sold, that might be a while.

Anyway, I had a couple bigger projects that require some aftermarket investment to continue, and we were getting ready for a big family trip to Europe, so I was looking for a quick, inexpensive build to mess with in the last couple weeks before we left.

I built this kit in high school... and due to the kit’s age and the fact that my “sweet spot” is 68-72 muscle cars, I’ve overlooked this on the shelf hundreds of times.  But I looked up some images and fell back in love with the first generation Mustang, especially the fastback, and the kit is dirt cheap, so I grabbed it.

I knew I wanted to paint it dark green, and I had a nearly full can of Fathom Green from my Camaro convertible build.  I thought about a few variations.. different wheels, making a green/white pony interior, but in the end, stayed with kit wheels and black interior.  Added some details to the engine, made seatbelts and used some Polyglas GTs, but it’s stock other than that.  You will notice the side rear windows are not there... one of them disappeared during final assembly.  It HAS to be somewhere nearby.  If I can’t find it soon, I will either request a replacement from Revell or put the window vents in, although I prefer the glass.  Anyway, it’s done other than that... thanks for looking and hope you like it!

Nice.  I've been meaning to pick one of these up myself.  I use to see a red 65 driving about town years ago and fell in love with the design.  They're a beautiful car, even if they lack the power my Chevelle had.
