Simply Nice! A fun kit I have built many times and a classic.You did a fabulous job to make yours different. I like the headlights especially. Bringing the rear bumper in and the muffler delete also work well. Nice little hot rod.

Hey, AC-

By any chance, does the "A" in AC stand for Alf?

That DOES not like a fifty year old kit. Excellent Job!  Nailhead does look good.

....thanks, Alan, for your comments. I guess its just one of those 50 plus year old kits that stands the test of time a bit better than some. its basic, simple to build, yet it yields a pleasing result with a bit of effort. mind you, this newest issue has perfect chrome, the nice tires and slicks RC2 offers, and a great decal sheet. the nailhead  is a terrific feature here too, because even though its early 60s speed equipment is dated, with a minimum of effort  the engine setup can look great by merely ignition wires installed and some overall detailing with paints. I had never built a 40 Ford at all in my  48 years of kit building, but  I'm glad I did, and even grabbed a couple of more of this issue for future builds.....best,  the Ace....;)

I just counted the AMT 40 Fords in my stash. 5 Coupes, One Sedan, and 3 Sedan Deliveries. Two Lindberg/ Palmer Coupes as well. I need to throw one together in the month.

well, if your stock is that rich on 40s,,,,,one built soon is mandated, I would say. no matter your choice of rod, drag car, custom, you name it....I am certain you will enjoy the build.  looking back I truly encountered no real problems or hang ups, that I can recall. a month should allow plenty of time to come up with a great result, regardless of your build preference...please post the car for all to enjoy upon your completion.....the Ace...;)

Sure glad this one was brought back open.  Beautiful build of a classic kit.  My first ever model was the AMT Trophy Series '40 Ford Coupe that I got for Christmas in 1959; and just like some of the stuff on the streets today, it was an instant addiction.
