These are often over looked but very cool. This one is modeled after the real deal that sold at Mecum. The AMT re issue annual has doors opened and the frame and pan separated for detailing such as exhaust and rear axle and suspension. The engine is from the kit with "dealer added" twin 4-barrels. Paint is Testor rattle can Turquise over white. Thanks for looking.

Extremely nice work, excellent foiling. Did the door jambs and details come that way or did you do them yourself?

Beautiful! Skip, the AMT annual did not have opening doors, so Jon would have had to have scratchbuilt them.

Very nice. Great job on opening the doors.

Question: how did you separate the frame with all the molded-in detail and get it to still go back together and look right underneath. Some pictures would be helpful.

Hi Charlie, A little patience and a #11 blade with the sharp tip broke off for scribing. The void left by the frame removal is patched from the back side with thin sheet styrene. When the frame is painted and placed back on the painted pan it covers 99% of the patching and is supported. You can source suspension from a similar family of cars. I am trying to work on my posting skills and hoping to post more pictures, stay tuned for further developements........JD

I didn't see the frame /pan work,but as an aside,the '60 Ford Starliner chassis almost drops on with all of it's separate parts details. The work you've done here looks good though.

You did a great job on it! The opening doors are very, very outstanding and a lot of work overall the kit.

Actually, it looks like it is posed in the open position.

Look again. There's no connection to the frame where the pivot would be.
