1964 Belvedere Hearse


Recommended Posts

This last christmas I once again took part in a Christmas build-off from Dec 12th to Jan 16th and this year we all got a Plymouth Belvedere to build. To really challenge myself before these buildoffs, I always decide on a "theme" to myself, already without knowing what model it'll be. This year I actually decided on 2 Theme's, 6 wheels and Santa Claus-elated, kind of a spin-off on last christmas build when I built Santas Gasser using a 66 Wildcat as platform.

I only used about 14 parts from the box, body, glass and chome mostly, and the rest was leftovers from my parts boxes.

Thanks, yeah it was a real blast to build. I went to bed every night for 4 weeks with a big smile in my face! Yep, It was finished a week ahead of "showtime" ! I believe I put about 100 hours total in this build and a LOT of scratchbuilding was done. Loads of plastic card, Evergreens profiles and stretched sprue used, along with 2 PEZ-dispensers. Unknown source for the chassie as I needed the stock one for something else ;) Interior bucket from AMT 1959 Camino w stock Belvedere dash. The saw and axe in the coffin compartment are 100% scratchbuilt . The trunk "Plymouth-emblem" was cut off and repositioned below the new rear lid.

Impossible. The Council of Immortality voted unanimously, after hearing testimony from The Great Ak, and gave Saint Claus the Mantle of Immortality in recognition of his life spent making children happy.

Whew, what a relief! Now I can continue making my wish list.

BTW, this is a fun build.
