1984 Bill Elliott Coors Thunderbird


Recommended Posts

Another one of the cars I found on my treasure hunt. I painted it wrong because to me, it looked like it was more candy apple over gold than a red. I only had the TV as a reference and the model box. As you can see, I discovered the decals were opaque and the darker finish shows through them. The gold was never really gold either, more of a tan color. As I found it, the suspension was loose, spoiler was off, the headers fell out and the windshield too. It was filthy after 36 years of storage and display. At some point I apparently painted the grill to make it look like the 1986 version. Of course nothing else was really correct for 1986. Also, It's always had the dirt short track lean.
