'56 Crown Victoria "crown"
Posted by avidinha on Monday, November 11, 2019 4:05 PM

Does anyone have the 3 "crown" pieces and the sunroof glass from the AMT '56 Ford Crown Victoria they are willing to sell/trade? I saw a Photoshop of a phantom Crown Victoria wagon and I want to try to make one with the Revell '57 wagon. Thanks.

I can help. Sounds like a cool project. I have a 56 Vic that I plan to build without the crown and sunroof. Shoot me your address and I'll get them in the mail.

Hmmmmm;

 What I want to know is this. Are you talking about the New wagon kit or the old Revell Kit

I did a 'phantom' 1957 Ford Crown Vic -- new AMT SN8028 --using (I think) a clear window set from the old, very old AMT '57 Chevy Styline kit. I think!!

It was tedious in the extreme cutting the roof panel (front half) out -- still dont know how I did it at age 74!-- but the trimmed-down plastic insert had almost the perfect crown shape.  It does have a couple of raised lines longitudinally, but they look pretty appropriate; could make them into T-top, I suppose.  Since it was a Ford dream car, this forum [Thanks very much!!] provided a FE 352 V-8 to make it more interesting.  It's two-tone, PPG white and school-bus yellow, with 660 clear-coat.

I had some BMF issues with this one, so be patient and I'll finish and post to gallery.

As an aside, there is a big accuracy glitch in the blurb in the instructions: the writer states that the Fords had a new bellied pereimeter frame "As opposed to GM's "X"  frame" which of course didn't come out until the following year '58!  Wick
