AMT '60 Pontiac Bonneville

Recommended Posts

Bought this already sprayed in a shade extremely close to factory Coronado Red, halfway decent, so I sprayed the roof white, and detailed it.

Very nice! My favourite era of American car design, you can see the move forward into the 60's but has a lot of the 1950's still present.

don't comment much of late when surfing the site viewing some great builds by some very talented people,  but I have not yet seen one as captivating as yours. With all that's coming out in the coming weeks, my main mission now is to obtain a 60 Bonneville kit!  I'm sure you've heard it before, but if you get tired or not satisfied down the road with it...........  Great build1

This still looks like a fresh build.

Beautiful!  Did you find this on E-bay like the '60 Buick I recently bought?

Wow Alan, that is beautiful. Reminds me of my first car which was a '60 Pontiac Ventura, only it was a four door with a Vista roof. While I liked the car a lot, it was my first car and I beat the BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH out of it which I was sorry for. Sighhh. Again I really like your Bonny model and the colors look great.

Thanks guys! Actually, I bought this from a modeling friend who has since passed away. He had sprayed it already.

AMT last issued this kit (T-140) as the 'Buttercup Bomb' in 1969.

I wonder if the mold still exists somewhere?
