^ it has Buickitis!
Here you go
That's not pink, that's coral!
Looks like it would prowl the highway looking for Smart cars to gobble up!
Rev 2. LOL
^^ Thanks, James. You're driving up the cost of Forward Control Jeeps.
Quick, everyone, get to Craigslist before it's too late!
For the recore I like this better, I was thinking old Dodge van Headlight rings to make the lights more in proportion, but they'd prpobably look too much like eyes lol! You guys do cool work.
You didn't mention where you wanted what color, so I just took a stab at it. Here's black, with orange/red/yellow...
Maybe If I imbed the image, this will stir someone's creative juices. Looking for a version of this in a dark green (jewel tone) with a lot of pearl and a white firewall. If you feel ambious and it's not too difficult, I intend to seperate the firewall with a chrome strip and chrome the split bones
Here ya go
Okay, Can I get a couple of more 50's colors paint options? I really like the Black/white top but my misses is concerned that my first attempt at body work may not be up to the test of Black.
I would like to see my grill in black if someone had the chance.
Do you have any particular colors in mind?
This one was really fiddly and I'm not wild about the way it turned out.
I used a 1954 Ford Ranch Wagon trim and cut-and-fudged. The result looks kind of like an old Jeep Grand Wagoneer.

Not a big fan of that body the big kick up on the roof at the back kind of looks like a after thought. wood trim looks good around the outside but I also don't like the hard wood floor look with the strips. I hate to say it but some times the mactac looks better.
Sorry. I tried to post the color chips from the 55's off of the web but couldn't get them to link.
It would be the bluish and green tints..
Wow, that's cool, you are awesome. Love the little touches with the shading and pin striping. Anything else you think would look cool other colors, details?
im looking to see wich green i like better for my 56 chevy im thinking of a pinecrest green or mystic emerald green if anyone has time to do mines, i stole a pic from one of the other guys on here of the emerald green car.
thr1ll3r, keep that color just how it is! it looks great! just bag it, put some red or white steelies with bullets and roll the tires off of it!
I have to agree. Actually, the '54 Ford Ranch Wagons (which I used for my model) had a stick-on vinyl for the wood graining in the middle. Even the Chrysler Town & Country woodies used something called Di-Noc (I think) for paneling inside the real wood surround.
Looks good to me! Thanks for the pic.
FYI- Wagonaire designer Brook Stevens also worked on the Wagoneer so your observation is right on the money.
I had forgotten about the Brooks Stevens connection. I like his stuff a lot.
He had a good eye for style and space utilization.
Messed around with it a bit more
Sweet sure beats the hell out of the gray!!
Someone want to play with this a little? want a more traditional look to the rims, maybe a different color- not sure how to go. Edit- kind of a crappy angle to photoshop with. Maybe just some color options.
Ok heres a fun one......... anyone willing to finish the 47 and put your favorite celebrity in Uncle Doug's place???
ok guys, a challenge. remove fenders, black steelies tall black wall firestones in back, short in front, dropped 4 inch all the way around and dark rust red or maroon thanks!
Maybe some steelies? Um, the second one, I was just goofing around...
