1961 Ford Starliner!

Recommended Posts

after searching for many years, and never finding one,

I just received an email from my online distributor..............

A 1961 Ford Starliner is coming!

Now I'm gonna have to track down a few 1960 Galaxie kits for chassis donors.

apparently this '61 is going to be more of a curbside kit.

Now I can build a replica of a car I knew years & years ago.

a '61 Starliner with a 427 SOHC..... B)

Sorry but it's not a Starliner, it's the square roof hardtop. It's still worth picking up, some nice custom parts.

Combine the forthcoming Hardtop kit with a Modelhaus Starliner body and you're good to go.

Yup, the Modelhaus Starliner is very nice. You can kitbash the forthcoming '61 with the Modelhaus body and the chassis /engine from the AMT '60 to build a great Starliner!

OR you could just make one of your own, useing the 61 Galaxie AND the 60 Starliner body, like Jairus did. I followed his instruction from the MCM article, and it came out PRETTY GOOD! Thanks Jair!:) :) :)

This kit was reissued a few years ago. I have one,but can't remember the date it was issued. I'll have to check it out.

Just checked my '61 and couldn't find a date on it anywhere. Maybe Round2 will issue it with all of the Styline parts? It shows a lot of funky looking custom parts on the instructions,some of which were in the kit. I know it had some of the custom parts in the issue I have because I remember tossing them. It also came with a wall mount and a pen holder.

I think the last Styline reissue (in the short, wide box) was late 1990's. It's a fairly good kit, but both the ones I have have bad plating on the chrome parts- rough and discolored in spots.

The Starliner top from the later '60 kit fits like a glove, but you'll need to do a little bit of work to shape the lower part of the backlight, and rescribe the trunk cut line.
