1960 De Soto Adventurer (Jo-Han)

Gorgeous finish on what was a great looking car! Awesome detailing as well! I’m dog-earing that interior photo as well. I have that kit minus the interior. My plan is to either scratch build one or modify one I have from a destroyed ‘60 Dodge Phoenix promo that is a very close fit, albeit, not a very close match style-wise.

I used the body on a pro street chaos years ago.  If I had to do it again, I can't imagine a better combination than what you did.  Beautiful

Very sharp, clean build, especially that interior.  Here's a green one I found at a flea market recently, along with a '60 Plymouth.  The sagging rear ends aren't a custom touch; the lowering blocks have come unglued.

This a beautiful looking build of a model not often seen. Great looking paint and trim finish and the interior looks just like OEM. I also like the way you detailed the interior. I built on back when they were first issued by JoHan and needless to say it never looked anything close to this. I left it on my then work bench when called to dinner by my mother. I also left a wood burning tool that I was using plugged in on the bench beside the De Soto. I wish now that I had saved it since building models of cars that have been in an accident has become popular.
