'78 Plymouth Volare Premiere coupe


Recommended Posts

This one started life as a broken promotional model. I fixed it, and since it then needed paint, I decided to do something you don't see every day. I used the custom halo vinyl roof piece from the '77 kit, and cut the correct quarter windows into it. I had to thin out the inside of the roof piece to make it fit right. It's still a tad thick, but not too bad. I also sanded the T-top lines off the roof of the car. Turning to the interior, I cut out the console and fixed the floor. Then I used the "bench" seat from the '71 Charger kit, and a base looking Volare steering wheel from the parts box. Tires are old Jo-Han white walls and hub caps are actually Jo-Han '60 Plymouth wheel covers. They look very similar to Volare wheel covers. Color is to replicate factory Citron Green metallic, a 1978 only color.
