Customs '64 Pontiac custom idea?

  1. Just throwing around ideas and I'm intrigued by the purple convertible's headlamps.

    No shame in my game, I love my Pontiac. I have wanted one since the '60 when I had the 1/64 version Matchbox Superfast, the purple '64 GP.

    I'm another lover of the '64 Pontiac (even though I don't own one)..... my folks had a '64 Catalina Safari that became my brother's first car (compete with Cragars up front, chrome reverse with factory dog-dishes out back and a Cherry Bomb glasspack. It sat while he was in the Army, then he gave it away when he came home..... what a shame.

    I never saw a Matchbox Superfast GP, only the standard issue you have pictured. Had one as a kid (which got destroyed) along with a dark blue and white promotional model (that my brother stepped on). I've replaced both, plus added a couple AMT kits to the collection.

    As stated above; some things are better left untouched.

    Unless that is, you are planning to shave the emblems, nose and deck it, and do a custom bar grille. At that point, flat clear Plexi or Lexan covers set into the stock headlight doors over stock replacement Cibie or Lucas headlights would look good. Might require tunneling the headlights back an inch or two to pull it off though.

    I think you've already got the right idea by looking to the series of GM styling XP 400 Pontiac show cars for inspiration before you do anything, just make sure you check out the '64 version itself.
