72 Montego GT

Recommended Posts

This has been kicking around about 5-6 years now   Decided a couple days ago to finally finish it.

Resin body on a Johan Torino chassis. Engine compartment from a Revell 76 Torino. Engine and trans from an AMT NASCAR TBird Pegasus wheels. Air cleaner from a Revell 69 Mustang . Just need to paint lock cylinders and put emblems on.

Really, really like this build... and it has no numbers and large sponsor decals on it, too! 

Great subject matter and as always from your workbench, outstanding build quality!

A RARE car in real life....but a favorite on mine.

Excellent work on a not so easy resin body. Maybe now we will get a kit.....always happens to me!!

I'm not sure I've ever seen a built one. Truly a unique model and you did a great job on it.

If I could find another one I would do a better one. There is slot more I could have improved now that I look back at it. It’s been painted for about five years and got shoved to the side repeatedly. The front of the fenders and hood scoops are waaaay wrong. I would fix those on the next one.Heres what it should look like.

THAT is one gorgeous Merc ! You did a fantastic job on that build  , Tim !

Does that Montego ever find its way to Kokomo ?

Cool! I'm currently working on a ´72 Torino, I just love this body style!

72 Montego and Torino are the two best looking cars Ford ever built.

Looks Great!!! I am biased though because I have a 1:1 in the garage that is Ivy Bronze Poly (the color of the one in your picture)
