Modelhaus 1967 T-Bird 4 door - Slightly modified and DONE -
Posted by Treehugger Dave on Friday, December 15, 2017 1:07 PM

This was a fun project I did several years ago under the radar. I love '67 4 door T-Birds.

As with all Modelhaus kits it was a pleasure to work with.

I opened the hood after I braced the front end with a radiator cross brace from another kit so there'd be no "Wobbly" fenders Wink when I opened the hood.

I used a 1964 T-Bird kit as a donor for the chassis and used a Boss 429 from a Mustang kit.

The only modification to the body was I cut away the B-pillars to make it a hardtop OH and I dumped her a bit to make her sleekier and give 'er a bit of class - at least to me.

Wheels are '60 T-bird wheel covers with Moebius tires

Hope you enjoy my ol' gal. Sure was fun to build and it's sitting center stage where I can enjoy lookin' at 'er - FUN STUFF! Thumbs Up

Simple and tasteful and sleek. A just fate for these Modelhaus castings as they become increasingly rare. I especially like the underhood detail and color choice. Nice!

Thanks for another beauty, Dave! The Boss Nine was a cool touch. The hardtop conversion and the drop really work, but you already knew that ahead of time. Cool

One beautiful T-Bird, that color choice really sets it off.  A bit lower than I prefer, but still an overall excellent build.

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

Great looking 'bird ! The Ausie Actor Eric Bana's dad has one of these exactly the same colour too ! There's a DVD called " The Beast " Where Eric race prepares his Ford Falcon XB ( Yes , like Mad Max's !) His love of cars is evident throughout ...

Another great build.  The "hot rod-ness" along with the "stock-ness" along with the "class-ness" make for a very unique build.  Bravo again sir!

Just keep picking away at it...
