    Seems to me that I have seen that car in TW a time or two.

    Doesn't it show up at Meets in the Mid-West from time to time?

        Wow! I believe that's the car I saw in Rod & Custom magazine in the early 60's and it has stuck in my head ever since. Never expected to see it again but it was at least a partial inspiration for this model:

          Yes, it was an early 60's custom, and a quick Google search shows it made it into a few custom car mags of the time, and yes there seems to be some suggestion that it has survived...wonder if anyone has photos of how well preserved it is(or not). Nice work on the model, is it 1/25?

            Yes, that's 1/25 scale. It's based on the AMT Starliner kit and has a Revell Parts Pack early Cadillac V-8 under the hood.

              I think I saw that car in Waterloo Ia. several years ago. Running and driving in primer.
