This was another rebuilder that I got on Ebay. I know some guys won't like the big wheels, but this car has such large wheel openings it was just begging for some 20's.

That body has some weird twists and bends to it.

And you're right about the "some guys won't like the giant wheels" thing... :P

10-4 on a thumbs down on the rims.

The rest of it....not bad at all. Fords of that vintage look good in that green. Put the stock wheels or a nice set of Cragars on it, and I'd be happy to have that on my shelf.

Very nice and clean. I like the wheels - they certainly look good on the car.

I don't like the big wheels in general, but you're right; they do look pretty good on this car. Nice job.

Ditto!

Ron, you've really nailed the paint-and-finish department! Beautiful model!!

Love it! I think big wheels look perfect on a big car... and Galaxies of this vintage were, indeed, gigantic!

That body has some weird twists and bends to it.

I think it comes with age. I've had two of the AMT '68's, and both of the bodies were warped beyond much use.

I am really liking this forum! It's refreshing to get honest opinions & not just lip service. Interesting how divided people are on the new style "large" rims. I personally don't mind the bigger rims on some cars...as long as they aren't hideously huge as on a "Donk". I really didn't notice any body warp & the model sits level on a flat surface. It might just have been my amateur photography, although I did see a couple sink marks in the front fender where the core support is. Thank you for all the comments & input...this will help me to be a better model builder. Not sure what color green that is, George 53, as I painted this one several years ago.

Great looking model Ron. My first car was a '67 Galaxy. Yep they are big boats.

Looks good to me. It could be a tad lower if it were mine. I can even dig the wheels.

or black centres on those wheels would have made the car look super awesome.

Great model but I also say the wheels are a no-no.
