"T Bone"

Post by Paul on Tue 29 Oct 2013, 7:39 pm

Got a couple of original Gran Torino dealer promos so ones gone into the display cabinet and the other is on the bench!



I decided to build the blue version as it wasn't as mint as the yellow promo, I didn't waste any time ripping apart a hard to find and expensive promo so here's a quick mock up,

wheels are from the Revell '62 Corvette 2n1 kit.

Thanks for looking Very Happy

wowwee 
Those are sweet Paul............I'm not gonna ask what you paid for them though.
Can't wait to see how the blue one comes out, it looks tough as, just as it is with those wheels.

I'm jealous of you mate, how often do you get the chance to get two of these and have the luxury to keep one pristine and custom build the other, very cool Cool 
That red is going to look nice with this body style and those wheels are just right too.
Might be stating the obvious here, but you can easily see where the XA-XC coupe styling came from.

They're sweet. I like the direction you're going in with the red Torino & the wheels look killer on it.
