‘42 Oldsmobile Coupe
IMO this is one of the best of GMs forties fastbacks and that grille is just so weird!!
Just finished this one as a winter project. Kept the original colours as they are perfect for this car and I cannot spray paint in cold winter conditions.
All the chrome has been enhanced by etching out and polishing. The paint was smoothed and polished and mirrors, spot lights, reversing lights and a fully detailed interior added. Hope it meets with approval.
