I built this one four or five years ago. Since it was my first go around with the kit, I kept it fairly simple. I lowered front and rear. The inner wheel wells had to be modified up front. I kept the interior stock. It's painted withTamiya Pearl White and Brilliant Blue. The body just got a few simple modifications. The side trim got reduced to a single strip. The hood and header got a slight peak. Headlights are from the AMT '57 Fairlane as are the tail lights. The grille is from a parts pack set. I smoothed the tail gate and added a chrome strip to mimic the side trim. The body was painted with Tamiya Mica Blue and Testors Dull Cote. The rear section of the roof got clear pearl stripes. They're more noticeable in person than in the photos. Wheels are Pegasus. Tires are Revell Good Year SCS's with painted whitewalls.
