'58 Ford Fairlane 500 "Taildragger" Custom!

Recommended Posts

Beautiful looking custom with all the styling Q's of the era. The Dodge Lancer hub caps may have been as popular or even more popular that the '56 Olds Fiesta hub caps depending on where you were living at the time. I think AMT put either the Lancer style or even the '59 Pontiac style flipper hub caps as an option in most of their 3 in 1 kits at the time. I like how you added the cover for the back seat. I remember seeing several of those in SoCal on the street in the mid & late '50's.

Excellent work as always John!! I'm always impressed with how you take a basic, simple kit and turn it into something like this! Well done! Now, get back to work that '60 F-100!!

ohh yes, now this I like! Love the custom parts that came with those old kits, but getting them to fit right and look good is not easy. Very nicely done and I like the colour combo, gold and red! I might try that combo on my '57 Fairlane.

John, that is beautifully done. Great job, I love this bodystyle. I always loved the tail light treatment of the '58 as it broke away from standard Ford rounds.😎
