1968 Oldsmobile 442 Holiday Hardtop

April 15, 2023 · in Automotive · · 12 · 0.6K

I built this kit using the 1969 442 kit. Beautiful resin casting of this car! I built this a a replica of a former ride I had in 1975. I added a scratch built vinyl top and painted with GM Production color "Saffron". Very nice fun build!

    The vinyl rooftop looks perfect.
    The car is the same build year as I am, though the car looks way better.
