This is one of 3 Diecast 1:18 scale Eleanor cars I have created. I have pics of the other one finished if you want pics I can email them to you, Just email me at daveythib@aol.com

Details on this build:

Ertl 1:18 Stock 67' GT-500, All of the fender flares, hoodscoop, sidepipes, and front fascia are entirely scratchbuilt glued and blended to the diecast stripped and dissassembled body.
The wheels are from 2 other 1:18 diecast cars. A Yat ming 427 cobra for the wheel inserts, the outer rim and tires are from a Maisto Mach III concept car. The car is painted in a GM Duplicolor "Pepper Smoke Grey" From Walmart. Stripes are handpainted, and the entire car is covered in PPG clear. This particular one will be superdetailed in the engine compartment and interior. The billet grill is fabricated from Guitar string. Let me know what you think so far!!!!

Tuner,

Your car looks awesome.
I love that car from the movie.
I hope to do a rendering of that car.
