I work slow, here's what I have so far..not trying for a ton of detail, just a fun build somewhere near period correct, we'll see.

Wheels & tires from Moebius 55 Chrysler

Interior done, Moving on to the body next...console & steering wheel are from 49 AMT Merc..TV has show about 67 Cougar..

finished it today, only took a year.....

It's a classic piece of custom styrene from the "Classic American Iron" '49 Mercury.

I just happen to like Al's steering wheel for obvious reasons.

Like belly buttons...to each their own.

It's up to you what steering wheel you use - but I wonder if the driver can see the gauges?

The sled is looking good anyway!
