Here's the 1st of two models today from my collection, both have been slightly modified. This one needed whitewall tires desperately. I 1st tried a set of wide whitewalls, but I didn't care for the look. So, this set is a bit narrower, and maybe not quite correct for the year, but I am pleased with the look.

Model looks great. Is this resin or diecast?

Also, where do you buy Motörhead models?

@ed-davis 

It is resin. I picked this one up on eBay. I don't know of any dealers still selling these, as they have been out for quite some time.

I feel the same, this car really pops with whitewalls.

Agreed the model needed whitewalls. I opted for the wider width whitewalss.

@ed-davis Motorhead is out of business of 1/43 and 1960 Ford Galaxie and 1959 Ford Wagon are scarcely to find

@karl  Motorhead also did a Model A Ford sedan delivery. I personally thought their models were great with terrific detail and am sorry they didn't stick around long. Not knowing the details, it seemed to me that they threw in the towel too quickly.
