'57 Ranchero Kustom
Posted by Plowboy on Friday, February 24, 2017 10:34 AM

This model has just about every styling element that I don't like: extreme chop, big fins, Chevy engine in a Ford that wouldn't be street worthy, red tinted glass, blower through the hood, Radir wheels, etc. But, once it was finished, it turned out to be one of my favorite builds. Thanx for checking it out!

Cool custom build.  And it is very non-discriminatory: Ford body, Chevrolet engine, and Plymouth grille.  BTW, that is one really slick paint job.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

That is one cool Kustom! Looks like something out of George Barris's shop! Nice work.

I agree with all of your styling comments Plowboy, and yes, in spite of that, this model has something, maybe attitude, that makes me like it!
