1968 Fleetwood Brougham, by Cadillac.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

Today I share my last conversion. I have build it from an old JoHan's 1968 Coupe Deville kit. The kit was damaged so I decided to turn it into the 4 doors Brougham Cadillac was offering that year. The roof is completely new, higher and stretched towards the trunk, with new windows mouldings, new B and C pillars, new vent windows. The shoulder line on the body is also modified,  more horizontal than the coupe. The interior is converted with plain front seats and wood-ish door panels, carpetting etc... New lower body mouldings to match the real car and set it apart from the Sedan Deville. Color is as close as "Spectre blue" with hand polished clear coats, and black matte vinyl top. Hope you'll like it.

Very nicely done!  Way more of these on the road than coupe devilles.

Wow! Fantastic work there, subtle but clearly comprehensive changes that have given it a great look, and very nicely built.

The conversion looks very realistic and I would never guess this started as a Coupe body.

Nicely done. Amazing work on the conversion, and the colour scheme is great.

Hi Tim ! Thanks for your kind words !. :) I still have to learn how to print my own decals to bring some of my conversions the names, scripts or crests they should normally have. Hope to do that soon.
