Ford victoria a 32 car..

Postby arni » Wed Jun 14, 2017 6:33 pm

Starting a Ford vicky,I first built this kit in about 1984-5 bough it in a
a little asian shop in Coulsdon.
Image

It has some nice tyres and stock tyres too.
Image

Nice body....
Image

The 'gizzards'
Image

The shell,will do it as a mild custom with the 427ci engine!
Image

Got the rather nice wheels assembled.
Image

Along with the chassis.
Image

Got he shell done too,it is Tamiya park green.
Image

The ensemble..

Got the screen frame epoxied in place.
Image

Decided to do the fabric roof in champagne gold.(green and gold etc..)
Image

Started on the tiny 427 engine! not too bad for an 85 year old car.also sprayed the grill green - the wings/fenders will be gold.
Image

Just a mock up...

Got the arches/fenders done in gold,and the running boards/radiator done in flat black.
Image

There is an option for the glazing,either clear or blue complete with blue headlight lenses...

Today the pain level was high and therefore my patience at a low,but got the rear lights and gas cap on.
Image

Had umpteen attempts to get the carbs and valve covers on,pah!....At least the engine is in now.
