Is it a car or a showrod is it a truck now? Not sure where to put it so here is a safe bet. Cobbled a better interior with a little more detail and opened the cowl vent. Waiting on some sitting  figures to come in . Those will need a lot of work to look close to the characters.

Just those two pictures tell me I want to watch this one. I'd love better interior pictures.

Already it looks more "right" than 95% of the builds of this kit.

Thanks,,,but that’s all I have for now. The  seat didn’t have sides and the kit doesn’t have door panels. I’m going off a picture from the show and my bad memory 😊

This is the picture

hmm, never noticed before that the driver-side front fender looks like a sheet metal replacement.

a little photo research shows that a partial fender replacement had happened, it just wasn't an original fender that was grafted on.

I loved it when Jethro tried to modify it into a "double-nought spy car" ala James Bond. I think he used a galvanized wash tub turned upside down for a bullet-proof cockpit cover, with a peep hole cut for forward visibility. Beautiful.

Nice start so far.

I was a big fan of the show back then ( as was most any young boy ) and have given some serious thoughts to seek out one of these kits from time to time.

BUT, ive never done weathered build like this ,,,,,so I think maybe not
