55' Chevy Convertible

Recommended Posts

 

This was the 1955 Indy Pace Car by Revell. I decided early on not to use the decals and just make it a stock street ride. Bought it open from an estate sale and the windshield was broke in half. Glued it together because I had no spare. The purists will not like the engine red instead of orange, but I painted the car Rustoleum Coral and White, so I thought the orange would look too close to the body color. Fairly smooth build all the way. Thanx for looking.  EDIT: Oops, I forgot to attach the driver's side mirror before the pic.

That's nice , great job !  I like the red engine , they used red for the 265 V8 in '56 so it's not unheard of . :)

Thanx. No, nothing really to look at. All stock and no mods.

Just an observation (think of it as constructive feedback) the V8 emblems beneath the taillights were chrome...maybe a Molotow pen might be in order. The front fender wells were black; only the firewall was painted the body color...kinda late to remedy that.
