1965 mustang (cherry 2000 movie)

Recommended Posts

hi all! I've wanted to build this car for so long finally going to start it. also building it for this years cannonball!

a really odd movie most never heard of but it had a cool car. finally gathered the parts to get going. I'm using a amt 65 mustang and a amt 67 mustang since the chassis is all molded together. ill be building it pre-fire most likely.

to start I trimmed the wheel wells on the 67 frame to fit under the body. modified the firewall so it mounts the way it should (for mockup)

found some rear leafs for the rear that will fit the tires so trimmed off the 67 springs and added these

then made some blocks for the front to set ride height. 20200503_142549.thumb.jpg.56e6ced31b1fe8c8fa76927be072a073.jpg

now I can make a front suspension knowing where it needs to set.

trim the wheel wells and bring the tires in some.

thanks for looking! comments always welcome and appreciated

Looks like you're off to a great start. Just saw the movie over the winter for the first time. For a  "b" movie buff like myself it was a pretty good movie. I'll be watching.

some more progress.

made a mount for the front bumper/bashbar so the bumper can be easily attached.

also made a wench with the motor and spool. wrapped some wire around it just to see how it looked. this snaps in place so when it comes to detailing and painting it will be much easier.

That looks so cool, it makes me want to build the Thomas Crown Affair '68 Shelby convertible.
