70 Thunderbird

Recommended Posts

My first finished build, in 2 1/2 years. I built it for the 24 hours of Daytona build, on Facebook. I finished it, then but put an extra hour, today & finished it better.

A few details. Its a curbside (a kit option), it's painted Tamiya Mica Blue Lacquer,  and a Createx Pearl White interior with light blue flocking "carpets". The wheels & tires are from an AMT 62 T-Bird. During the 24 hour build, I took my wife to dinner, slept 6 or 7 hours, & had to help my daughter with something, that morning. I can't wait until next year.

Beautiful looking T-Bird. The Wheels and White Walls look like the perfect combination on this cruiser.

Nice Bird! It reminds me of the Steve Stanford designed "Thunderstruck". I guess you know that car, Jeff?

When I Googled images, for inspiration, I saw a purple 70 T-bird with a 68 grill, 62/63 T-bird wire wheels, & white interior. I really liked the look but I already have more purple cars, than blue cars. You got to have a balance, right?

As you mentioned a great looking curbside car. Your car is no exemption. The color and the wheel/tire combo work perfectly. Well done Sir!

 Very nice wheel treatment. The blackwash looks perfect, really makes the spokes stand out. Great color combo also!

Even though I'm usually not very much into cars newer than 1965-ish ...I must admit I really love this 'Bird !
