(PICS) 1947/1948 Buick 4 door sedan. My brother fabricated this in the mid 1970s.....
Larry used brass to fabricate a chassis, interior, poseable steering, etc. from a damaged early post war Prameta toy.
The windows had to be carefully cut out, the fender openings reshaped, wheels/tires turned in brass and glazing shaped in clear acetate. Paint was lacquer and plating was a combination of Pactra model paint and foil muffler tape
