Let me introduce Jade, a 1965 Pontiac Bonneville 421, Tri-Power, 4-speed in Teal Pearl


Recommended Posts

Well gents. This one got done along with her Big Girl sisters. I present to you JADE. She is painted in Testors Chezoom Teal Pearl metallic with a well detailed turquoise interior. Lots of skill expanding detail has been put into her including scratch built console with REAL wood inlays and my 1st successful interior flocking.

I looked at her sister Sapphire first and was pretty impressed, but I’m taking this one if given the choice. Wow!! Fantastic job (as I’ve come to expect when I see your posts!)

Thank, you Mike. Stand by, two more sisters are coming soon. 😃

Nice Build. Great photos. The 65 Canadian Parisienne is one of my all time favorites. The mechanic at a local gas station had one with the most powerful Canadian Chevy based engine with a 4-speed. This car did very well at a stop light drag against a local Thunderbolt. The sights and sounds of that match up are etched in my brain.
