AMT 1955 1956 Ford Fairlane Crown Vic Model Kit

AMT 1956 Ford Crown Victoria


1956 ford crown vic


An AMT 1956 Crown Victoria. This time, I used a turquoise hardware store color spray paint and Testors White for the two tone work.

The kit includes the sunroof "glass", and has a groove molded inside on the roof to cut it open. I opened it up with a knife and painted it lightly with Testors Transparent Green. (Which of course, makes it a Sunliner ).

The 1956 Ford Crown Vic roof and posts trim was added on this version, though they are separate pieces, you can easily leave them off to make a base Crown Vic.

The interior is 2-toned to match the outside.

Includes a V8 312 engine. The front wheels are posable. For some reason I went with black wall tires, though I think it would look better with whitewalls.


1956 ford crown vic


Another AMT 1956 Ford Crown Vic kit. Built stock out of the box, except I made it a hard top (no post) .

I think the pink may be actually brush painted on, because at the time, I could not find any pink paint in a spray can. I also brush painted the wide whitewalls. Oh well, those were the days. I was just getting back into modeling after a very long dry spell (late 1980s).

On this kit the doors and the hood open. It also includesa lot of extra parts for customizing or giving it the full Crown Vic trim.

The Neba condiment bottle behind the car is from a local fast food place out of business now, but for many years, it was THE place to take your Hot Rod or Custom car.

On the last night they were open, they were selling the bottles and I was lucky enough to score one. They sold great Roast Beef sandwiches.



1956 mercury


An AMT 1956 Ford, with a little converting of the trim. I had a real 1956 Mercury at the time, and wanted to see what the car would look like in dark blue. I sanded off the trim on the kit, and added the Mercury trim with Bare Metal Foil. I also made it a hard top (no post).

Overall, I think it came out well. The kit is painted in Testors Dark Blue. I don't know where the hubcaps came from, but they were the same kind I had on my 1978 Ford F150 when I first bought it.

The Gooyear lettering on the tires are probably some old Nascar decals.
