Not dads old 65′ galaxie

March 26, 2016 · in Automotive · · 9 · 1.5K

Hello guys..just thought i would share this recent build it's the 65 galaxie 500xl kit it can be built 3 ways. Stock car / factory stock or custom. I made up my own "factory custom" or pro touring I guess..I picked this kit because it was different not your avarage muscle car. I think the big square body style is a bit different from you regular muscle car. The kit was a fun build everything went together pretty well. I used folkart metalic aquamarine with and testors aztek pearl white for the top because I thought that would be a nice combination. As far as the custom part well the pegusus wheels and lowered stance was just right for what I was looking for..this was probably one of my favorate builds so far..thank and hope you like it..
