Johnny Cash "One Piece At A Time"
Posted by Digital_Cowboy on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 12:08 AM

Does anyone know if anyone has made a kit for Johnny Cash's "One Piece At A Time" Caddillac?  If not are there enough kits out there that one could kit bash it, and/or scratch build the missing pieces?

No one ever made a kit that I'm aware of, you would have to carefully research which of the many tribute cars made you want to replicate then start searching for old Jo-Han kits or promos - they did Cadillacs each year from 1958 to 1979.

Then you'd probably have to resin cast whichever body panels you wanted from each body since some of those Caddies are $100 - $200 a time.

There are a few 1/24 diescast Cads available that you might be able to use too but I suspect unless you can borrow models from your buddies or are good at scratching building this is going to be an expensive project.

hope you find a way to do it though.

First off, I'd like to appologize for not responding sooner, I don't have access to The Net at home and as such I do not get online as often as I'd like to.

Thank you for the information.  It would be a fun build, and I kind of figured that there would be a lot of both scractch building as well as kit bashing to pull of something like this.  But it would be a fun project.

Very cool! Love that idea.

What I'd like is Chuck Berry's No Money Down Caddy. Laugh

There is no kit of JC's Cadillac as it wouldn't sell enough kits to "break even." It would be a cool project, and a fun build. Of course some projects drag on and get to be a pain after awhile also. Good luck.
