1977 Cadillac Coupe Deville

Recommended Posts

So after 15 or so years of being in parts, I am finally restoring the vary first kit I got as a kid. My dad bought this one for me from a hobby shop (looooooong gone) and the hobby began. Over the years I resprayed it, added chrome foil, changed the interior color, etc. Dropped it into a vat of brake fluid for a few hours and all the crummy layers of Krylon paint vanished.

This time I went with GM "Light Driftwood Metallic" with a chocolate brown interior and half top. The bumpers I had with the kit are for '78 but they are pretty beat up from being used as a childs toy, so are the wire wheel covers. So I used a nice clean set of '77 bumpers and '76 wheel covers from the Modelhaus.

I was in high school when these were intro'd in the fall of '76, and I can remember being somewhat disappointed by the new "shrunken down" look. Over the years I've come to really like these, and now they're pretty collectable IF you can find one that's not been rusted to death.

Very, very nice and clean job on a not so often seen model! Nice to see one that's bone stock and not done up as a lowrider!
