Built OOB and painted with Krylon Red Oxide primer and satin Ivory. Only real fit problem was getting the interior to go all the way up in the body.

The backstory is that it was bought from a farmer who had kept it in a shed for years. The new owner rebuilds the drive train and cleans up the interior to make it driveable and left the dash in the original color. Then he does the body work and shoots it with a few coats of red  oxide primer and some satin ivory for the top and trim.

Hope you like it and here are some cloudy day pics.

The back story seems realistic to the looks of the build, nice work.

Nice job. I always like a back story or what was the builders intention was in the final product - very cool idea.

That's why mine is still in the box, what did you do to fix the problem? I'd really like to finish mine...BTW, the build looks good.

What I did was  remove the flange from the bottom of the windshield and widen the slots that the dash mounts in to move it a little closer to the seat. Thanks.

Another good looking '60 Chevy!  Are those AMT/Round2 Firestone tires?
