What if.....Tbird

Just started actually working on this. Had the Flintstone body kicking around and couldn't come up with a theme. Then a Eureka moment. I bought an auction for a '62 Johan Chrysler that did not have the model I wanted but it had a beat up 1962 Tbird promo in the box. So I thought what if Ford made the Tbird in 2043 using some of the basic panels that were amortized years ago. I mean the model T went on for 20+ years, F body GM cars were basically the same from 1970 until  1981 So why not?

Much sleeker looking with the changes to the roof and the leading edge of the grill. Different grill and headlights ? 

Still kicking that around. I do have a Mercury grille out of the parts box from the ElCamino kit

Is that the '50 or '60 ventage El Camino?  I think they said it represented the grill from a "60 Mercury.

1959 AMT kit. I think it's the 1960 Merc grille

That's what I thought. The T-Bird grill area on this model tends to tuck under with the bottom edge of the grill being further back than the top where it meets the hood. Being a custom, you can do it anyway you want of course.

I like the sleek look of that. What roof did you say that was? 

Later-

It's actually a Jimmy Flintstone resin body. It came like that. It uses a new gen Camaro windshield and rear window. I'd assume it's a Camaro roof grafted on
