VERY VERY NICE!
Authentic look, I'd place it 62 to 64, more like 64 to me!
You did a great job, a great model.

Spectacular! You really captured the look and feel of the era. 

I especially like your injector tubes. I"m gonna have to go back to your WIP thread and see how you did those. 

Well done and model on! B)

Like other fellas have said, you hit the look dead on. I always liked the take-no-prisoners attitude of cars like these.

I love when someone creates a period perfect model and yet no one piece seems to be a replica of an existing or well known car. Dennis, it just shows how strong your understanding of cars from this era is.  I wouldn't change a thing .  It makes me realise how I really must get one of my Tudors out of the stash and get on with it!  Thanks for sharing it with us all.

Cheers

Alan

Thank you, everyone, for your nice comments! I'm really happy to finally have this model finished, it's been a long time coming. This one was a bit of a challenge to work on since the frame is molded as one with the fenders and floor, especially since the top side of the fenders, bottom side of the fenders, top side of the floor, bottom side of the floor, frame and running boards all had to be different colors. Lots and lots of masking which nearly burned me out!

Thanks a bunch, Gary! 1964 was about what i was shooting for. 5-spokes, hard piecrusts and a high-winding small block. :D
