61 Olds F-85 Wagon

Recommended Posts

I am building a 61 Olds wagon for the NNL, hopefully I will get done.  I started with a Joh-Han kit I've  had for years.

The look I am going for is a old Surf wagon you could see in the 60s or 70s, you know a rusty cheap wagon or truck to get you down the beach and go surfing. 

But I shooting for today's  Patina look with some upgrades with new wheels and maybe a bigger engine.

I used the salt paint treatment and pick a two tone paint job. I don't think Olds had a two tone paint job that was stock. 

But I love the look and with chrome Pegasus low rider rims to fill the wheel wells out it has the old surfing feel.

This is my first time using the salt paint treatment, so any suggestion to add to what I have done so far is fine.

Nice rust job!

Maybe it's just me, but the shiny wheels contradict the rusty body...they don't seem to go together.
