My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

I also have a hard top 1965 Imperial, which I gather is much the same kit, just a different body with respect to the trunk and having a roof. It will become a four door eventually.

As far as accuracy goes, you would be hard pressed to find anything more accurate, as far as the body goes, than these old annuals.

Remember, the kit companies had access to the auto companies plans for these cars, so in general, they are very accurate.

That's very good news. Actually, the car and I are the same age and I didn't start building until 1970 or so. At that age I didn't even know how they got to the store. :) But if the manufacturers had access to the plans, then I should have no troubles.

I'm currently googling lots of reference pictures and I think I'll do it in Champagne gold.

My main reason is I've actually in all my years never built a rep stock or a convertible. I thought it would be a chance for me to hone my skills detailing interiors.

P.S. I just measured the chassis and the wheelbase is 129mm. The real car is 129inches. That's going to make measurements very easy. :)
