Looks like a nice deep finish on the blue Lee

Is there something missing off the back? There is a slot that looks like it needs something to finish it off

I know the kit is about 40yrs old and I bought it used from eBay I think maybe a trunk emblem goes there anyway it’s was missing

Actually Lee it is for the Rumble seat handle. My Dad owned a '36 ford coupe back in the day and the rear deck was configured the same way. The circular pad on the tail light stem was a step to get into the rear seat. Rick H.

Yes and the step pad was rubber topped for sure footing. I think the pad had a grid pattern but memory does not serve. Rick H

Peter. Thanks for stopping by I’m glad you like it just something different

Jim. You are right cars of the time had Character and were made to last and easy to work on

Andy. Thanks for stopping by and the great complement I must of done something right even Simon liked the color and paint job

John. Thanks for the complement. And you are so right about the complements

Ralph. Glad you like it and it’s one of my favorite cars even though of its short comings I think it turned out well

Arch. Thanks for stopping by the color is a automotive one called Duplicolor in a rattle can I bought it at a local parts store it’s called sonic blue

Guys I don’t know if you’ve ever built one of these old kits but you have to glue the body together the body is not one piece it comes in different pieces and you have to glue it together the tires are molded together with the wheels and hubcaps together not a easy kit to build lots of aligning to do but it’s a very fun kit if you’re into doing that stuff
