MCW 1963 Lightweight Galaxie Interior
Posted by John Witzke on Saturday, January 14, 2017 8:20 PM

Model Car World (MCW) makes a resin interior kit for the 1963 Lightweight Ford Galaxie.  Overall MCW captured the interior detail well, dash has radio and heater deletes, door panels have the armrest removed.  The front seats included in the MCW kit are not accurate for a 1963 Lightweight Galaxie.  They are however correct for the 1962 Lightweight Galaxie.  To correct this flaw for the 1963 Lightweight Galaxie that I am building to replicate Richard Brannan's car, I have modified the kit seats.  The seat on the left is the original kit seat, the one on the right I modified to replicate the actual 1963 lightweight seat.
