64 Fairlane VS 65 Galaxie

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

Here are my last build, an AMT 65 Galaxie and a Revell 64 Fairlane. 

The Fairlane is build as a grocery getters with a Moebius 6 under hood and Trumpeter Hubcaps, wanted to done it like an AMT annual instead of a drag model, color is champagne metallic from Tamiya, had to scratch build a center console also. 

Thé Galaxie is box stock minus wheels and tires, from parts box, I saw this car on a Muscle Car of the Week video and had to build it 😉

Hope you will like them 😊

2 true beauties there. The steel wheels and caps on the Galaxie look awesome. Fantastic paint finish on both too.

Both are sharp cars for sure. That Fairlane looks pretty awesome though!

Both look very nice, but I'm not sure the Mobius 6 is correct for a car. It's a truck engine. But I could be wrong.

Thanks, concerning the engine, it was correct looking regarding the few pics I found with Fairlane 6 engine, maybe the inches were more important on trucks, but it's not choking from the outside 😉

These both have really clean looking finishes. Excellent paint work and the interiors look perfect.

Great work on both of them Emmanuel!

I guess I never really realized that the Revell Fairlane could be built into such a nice stock example.

Something to definitely keep in mind.

Sweet stuff!!

That's why I said I could be wrong. They are beautiful models.

The stock look is great on both of these Fords !  The Fairlane really catches my eye ,  so many T-Bolts around it's nice to see a very nicely done stock build .  Beautiful color too ! :D

I just looked at them again. Both are fabulous, but the Fairlane has that "IT" factor!

It (240 cu in or 300 for the newer ones) would be correct in a full size Ford, but a whole different engine family than the small 6 with the one piece head and intake they used in the Fairlanes. That said, I'm not sure which car I love more, they are so cool!

That's what I was kinda thinking.

Very very cherry on both! What was the source of the wire wheel covers on the Fairlane?

Thanks for the nice comments, the wheels cover came from Trumpeter Falcon/Ranchero kits ;)
