AMT 1966 Ford Fairlane Model Kit

1966 Ford Fairlane


An AMT Ford Fairlane kit.

It's built stock and painted with an automotive metallic blue paint over grey primer, with a more modern light gray interior color. I used Testors clearcoat as a final top coat.

My first car in 1976 was a 1967 Fairlane, so I am really partial to these cars. (Mine had a 289).

This kit is available in two versions, a GTA 390 version and a 427 example.

The kits / cars have different hoods among other parts. The 427 version has dog dish hubcaps, and the GTA and 427 each had specific hoods.

But the two kits are the same except for the special 427 parts.

These kits are good, though I always thought they could be improved with better tires. The rims are perfect in each case. The front end can be an issue when attaching the body to the chassis. Trying to get them together with a flush fit can sometimes be trial an error. If not done right, the front end will sit high. Mkae sure the dashboard is in the correct place or it can hamper final assembly.

This being a street machine, I used any HIPO engine parts, and gave the chassis a generic used look, but on a car that's been totally repainted.
