LOL, Hollis, you're killing me. OK, I'm officially drooling. I'm also still glad you shared it with us. Man, I love that model.

Very nice 55 Hollis. This is the car that I learned to drive on way back when.

Hollis, am I correct in assuming this was a Franklin Mint '55 that you repainted?   I like it.

My guess is the Fire Chief car (see the spotlight, blue ring on the seat is from the removed hat) with removed graphics and white top either repainted or from the blue/white car. Great result!

To all above. 

Yes, it was a FM Fire Chief car. Removed all graphics. No painting at all. Top came from a blue & white car.

Also cut out the side back windows to make it look like a Hard Top.

Got to do something about that hat ring. Question as to what.

Regarding your removing "all graphics" on the Chevy above, I'm wondering what you used to remove them and how easy/difficult it is to do?  I have the Danbury Mint RED Fire Chief model and would like to remove the graphics.

George the answer to your question is Cutex nail polish remover. With 98% Acetone. Works very good on most of the cars and trucks.

Except the FM '40 "Green Thunder" and DM '40 flamed Hot Rod that I have tried but didn't work. Might be a few more I'm not aware of.

One other thing if you rub to long in one spot it can and will remove the paint off the car. Just take a Q-tip and go lightly on car you should be fine.
