'67 Mustang GT Pro Touring

I built this model way back when the Eleanor Mustang was all the rage. Personally, I thought it was just a bit overdone. So, I wanted a Mustang that was just a little less "showy". I started by giving it a mini tub in the rear to make room for the wheels and tires from the AMT Phantom Vickie kit. It also donated the engine. The stock hood would no longer fit over the engine. A molded in teardrop hood scoop took care of that. I filled in the license plate recess on the splash pan and added a spoiler. I used a set of correct sized headlights from a Revell '69 Camaro. I also added a rear spolier. I hinged the trunk. But, I didn't do them right. When I tried to open it, I bent the hinges and never could get the trunk to seat correctly. Lesson learned. The body was then covered with Boyd's True Blue Pearl Enamel over a black base with plain old Testors White Enamel and a coat of clear. The interior got the rear seat deleted, speakers added and a set of custom bucket seats. It was covered with Flat White and Testors Blue.

Hi Roger!

Well, it is "mission accomplished", again! Very nice. And I'm not surprised that you belong to the club of builders who "raid" the Phantom Vicky for all its fantastic parts. That rolling stock fits the typical pony-cars just perfectly. 

Bravo!

Beautiful looking paint finishes. I agree with you on your body mods, they look much better than the Elenore design. Great detailing on the engine also.

Great Job Roger.  Nice color & modifications. 

Yes, it is difficult to hinge the 67' Mustang trunk, with all its curves.  I had a hell of a time on my Eleanor build to get it working properly and to have it close nice & clean. 

TCB,

Adam

Thanx Claude! Yeah, I like the Phantom Vickie for it's parts. I have a '58 Edsel wagon with the wheels, tires and engine from that kit. You should check it out if haven't seen it.

Another beauty Roger, love your builds. Probably my favourite colour on these, including the white stripes. I need a Phantom Vicky!! or 2 or 3. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers, Steve
