  • Blue Diamond (and one in the rough)

    First off: my usual junkyard/trailer park version. This uses one each RC Mint and Maisto Design wheels swapped on one side, one opera window popped out, one door card in the back seat, one tire on the passenger's seat, and extensive paint & pastel weathering.

          I'm still waiting for the Lincoln and now you have two versions.
          Due to the recent budget cuts,
          the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
          current state of the economy, the light at the end
          of the tunnel has been turned off.

            Waiting for the black one to show up so I can build a nightmare project car I dodged back in 2007 in scale by painting the seats & door cards white (had vacuum leaks and a knocking 460, during Iraq War gas prices) and the gold one so I can build a replica of a local car that got saved from a tow yard.

              Nice work. Looks like the next step is stripping it out, swapping in a sbc 350, welding /doors/bumpers up and taking it to the local county fair demo derby!!! My parents had a Mark IV in white and a late 70s Continental. I'm pretty fond of that era of Lincolns and have fond memories of riding in the back seat of both in the mid 1980s as a little kid. The I have this and the black version on pre-order with Diecast Direct along with a few other newer castings from JL, AW and GL. @CGU2.0 do you have the NEO Scale Models '77 Lincoln in 1/64 resin? Wonder how close they compare??? The NEO does have greatly smaller opera windows but they did get the bumper fillers more correct.

                Agreed! Can't afford the NEO and can't risk breaking something that pricy

                    Great work as usual, Chris. I'll take the one in mint condition, though. Lovin' those old Alabama license plates on it, too!
