I'm doing mine in a 57 only color, Dusk Pearl. I'm sure someone back in the day could have special ordered it.

Looking good. Just one suggestion, on a factory stock engine, black or dark gray ignition wires would be more correct.

Aw !

 Well at least the purple pond will help . I haven't built one of those since they stopped offering opening doors . O.C.G.    P.S. I noted your engine seemed cleaner than my real one . Did you remember , that engine leaked some at the valve cover gaskets ? Even when less than a year old ?

Looks good, Niko! Watch out for that spare tire well. It may stick out below the body at the right rear. I cut out the middle layer of plastic attached to the interior as I remember, so that I could push the chassis floor up in the body. Looking good so far! Cool Thumbs Up

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
