Due to lack of new builds, here is one of my older ones: built in 1986 or 87, photos are  from 2005 and 2008: out of the box, sprayed with auto lacquers from the can; lots of bare metal foil on this one (started wrinkling a bit after 20 years) whereas the window surroundings and interior/upholstery trim are brushed with Humbrol silver - I had not the nerves to apply more foil ! I should have wetsanded and polished this one back then (Paint shows orange peel)!

Great looking fast back Galaxie. A friend had one like this that was all red inside and out including the roof. You wouldn't lose it in a market parking lot.

Beautiful Galaxie especially in red !  I had a '60 Chevy painted in red lacquer that looked just like that after about 10 years . :D

I love those old classics. Great job on the build and color choice. As Espo said, you would easily spot in in a parking lot. The trim is nice and clean.

That's a groovy Galaxy. 

Thank you Mario, Larry, Lee, Glen and Eric - I don't know if two tone is factory correct, but I liked the idea of a white roof as the interior is also red as is the body color.

Merci, Philippe !

Thanks for the compliment - Mario makes fantastic paintwork that I probably never will be able to achieve.
