Ooooooooh! Jeff that is soooooo nice! I can see why Bill Mitchell like that design so much he based B-O-C's 1961-'64 four door hardtop C bodies based on that design! Maybe I'll get lucky and snag one off the 'Bay or at a show. I'd definitely like to build that one sometime.

As far as a chassis.............perhaps the Monogram '59 Caddy tweaked a bit? They were pretty much the same albeit shorter for the Brougham.

Hey Bill ! Thanks ! ;)  Yes if you find a '60 brom kit somewhere jump on it cause they're really tough to find now...Thanks for the tip on the monogram Chassis. Got a few in stock...Never thought about it, it's a great idea and worth the try !.

Beautiful car! What is the paint color that you used?

Hi Steve. The paint is Dupli-color Perfect Match "Teal-Sarcelle Metallic". It looks like a mix of 1962 Cadillac colours "Avalon Blue" and "Aleutian Grey Metallic". Dupli-color paints are the only car paints available here.

Jean-Phillipe, I found a nice Jo-Han '62 Fleetwood with good chrome and glass today at the Atlanta swap meet from its original owner!  The body and interior are going into the purple pool very soon.  I never heard back from Page Resin after he said that he didn't have any more 4-doors, and gave up on him quite a while ago.  I'll paint the model maroon/cream two-tone with a cream-colored interior.  The styrene was originally cream or off-white.

Hi David, great catch !!! :) Not easy to find in good condition now!. Sad to learn that Pedro doesn't have Sedans in stock anymore... Of course I'd love to see your restauration, so I hope you'll share it with us. :) . I really like the colours you are planning and think it's great choice on that specific model. I do have a 62 Fleetwood that also needs restauration, built in black, a bad paint with "orange peel effect" and glue stains everywhere...I have no idea when i'll start it,....too much Cadillac conversions started on my desk now. ;)

Making progress on the Fleetwood restoration.  The chrome on the front & rear bumpers is sort of yellowish, but I think I'll just leave it.  The 3-spoke steering wheel is wrong, but the one from AMT's '62 Pontiac will work nicely, plus it has a separate chrome horn ring.  Two inside mirrors were provided with that kit.  Windshield may work from that kit as well, but the Jo-han glass is ok.  Revell's '62 Impala may supply the outside mirror. I'll post some pics when it's done.
