'56 Lincoln custom

pack rat

Recommended Posts

I found this built-up ITC '56 Lincoln years ago and just had to have it.....but what to do with it?  Built out of the box it looks better than a Palmer kit, but that's about it.

A decent factory-stock build is pretty much impossible, but I figured if I could chop (or replace) the top it might make a nice curbside custom.

Digging through the parts department, I found a Monogram '59 Cadillac windshield frame and a cast-off AMT '57 Ford roof that looked so right that I had to take the plunge.  Just for fun I decided to try a Winfield-inspired paint job using Testors Boyds enamels I've had sitting around for years. 

It's far from perfect; the paint is a little uneven in spots, I didn't bother installing w/s wipers, vent windows etc, but it looks good on the shelf.
