Loving the stance and the wheels are perfect Bruce, I will be watching this build.

I built this several years ago, can’t remember altering the frame.

Hi!

Great project, perfect stance! Are the wheels from the 57 Chey Snap kit? They look fairly similar...

Sir they are scale Motorsport products. I believe Art Laski has them.

Cheers

The paint is a color changing paint. Turns blue to purple. With a urethane clear. Was built for a IPMS show. Out of the box category.

Super! My 1/1 33 Ford 3W was painted this color + vanilla shake. Was called BURPLE by House of Kolor. Great job!

Just received the bomber seats, steering column and seat belts. From Ted’s Modeling Marketplace . Pretty fast service! I’m impressed

Man those seats are nice, gotta get me some of those.

Your purple coupe shows that the Revell ‘32 is a fine kit straight from the box.

Thank you mrm. A friend just told me to put bomber seats in it. I’m going to make some or get some pe aircraft seats

Have you looked at the custom seats from the Round2 '62 Pontiac, they are done in a nice button tuft in the old style diamond pattern and would be a perfect match for a retro, or semi retro coupe.

Burple is a totally different color, the HOK burple is a pearl base this is what HOK was selling as Harlequin color changing, I have used the purple to orange and I think this might be sold as Cyan to Purple which is a blue to purple color changing paint like the old Dupont Chromalusion.

Hi Delton!

Not to argue, but the pearl base you refer to from HOK is Passion Purple. It's a straight base-coat, designed to be topped by HOK urethane candy. My car actually had a silver base coat under the Burple candy color. (see picture). However, it may indeed have a slight difference from the color I saw on the model above, which would make sense, since it is not the exact same paint. I just indicated it reminded me of HOK's Burple. Nothing more...

Regards,

CT

Opened up the cowl. Have to be careful . Without doors things get very fragile by the windshield posts and rocker panels. Cut the firewall and glued it flush. Changes the interior floor . Keep fitting and sanding. Bomber seats will look good. Still in limbo about the color.

Hi Martin!

Thank you for the compliment. Actually, I sold that car after building it (in 1999) to a gentleman from New-Hampshire, and last time I heard about it, he drove it to Hot August Nights in Reno, Nevada, and auctionned it to a buyer from Boise Idaho. Cars have wheels, so, they move around a lot, don't they?
