Recommended Posts

Jeff,

Love it!!!! Which kit are you using? What type of rims? Rally IIs or steel w/dogdish hubcaps?

Looking forward to seeing the finished product :(

Cheers, Ian

Going to be a neat build! Instead of the typical "muscle car" or "hot rod" build it is a more obscure but very interesting car!:D

I almost bought a 1:1 Firebird Sprint off a school teacher who lived in Blackriver Falls Wi. back in the mid 70's!

It was a red with white interior and rag top to boot! That six with the 4 barrell carb and a 4 speed was a very quick little ride!

This was another car I passed over because the wife said we needed a more family oriented car with kid #2 almost there! She also was one caught up in the "dangers" of convertibles in crashes!:(

We wound up with her dad's old 4 door 66 Ford LTD!

John,

Funny you should mention that, thats why I had to sell my 1969 Catalina Convertible back in '90..

My oldest boy was only three at the time, and my ex was pregnant with my daughter..

We ended up with a mini-van.... :D

Man, I wish I had that car back... :(

Cheers, Ian

Ian this is the 68 Revell kit. I plan top use the Rally II rims on it but dog dishes would be cool too

Looking good so far. I love that paint color. I say go with the steelies and caps. It isn't done as often (or enough).

Later-

Jeff,

What Revell kit? new or old? I'll have to pick one up for myself :(

That color green is the same green my '69 Custom S was.
