AMT 61 Ford Galaxie
Posted by JDCustoms on Wednesday, November 01, 2017 2:24 PM

As a car enthusiast, I look everywhere for inspiration. One of those avenues is a TV show that I watch called MuscleCar which is now named Detroit Muscle. One of the project cars they did was a 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS hard top known as Red Sled. This 61 Galaxie is the Ford version of that car. Since this kit is an unassembled promo, I spend all my time doing body work. I save most of the emblems and trim off and smoothed everything out. The paint is Testors one touch lacquer Deja Blue straight out the can with Testors wet look clear lacquer also out the can. Interior is two-tone tan and black and all the exterior trim was done in satin aluminum. The wheels are Billet Specialties Fuelies sourced from a Maisto diecast kit and are wrapped in Pegasus tires.

This car looks awesome with those wheels , great work !

I have a pro touring Mach 1 using one of the Elanour type '68's as a base (including the same wheels as yours + the "side skirts" & exhausts. ) Can't find the WIP pics though...

Nice marriage of old & new, but you need some "BIG" brakes behind those wheels I think.

Love to see how that Mach1 turns out. Hope you find those WIP pics.

I thought the same thing too but didn't realize it until after the project was done.

I can't find the Mustang picture for love nor money , but this monstrosity stole parts from a Maitso Camaro Gen 1 convertible ( Including the side skirts , amps & nitrous bottles! )

The motor is from the dual engine Hurst Hairy Olds . and "Some blower bits !"
