The '64 is one of my favorite years for Cadillac styling.

Those models are beautiful.

John, two incredibly beautiful Cadillacs! It's hard to believe that they're 1/43rd scale, your pictures make them look like 1:1s.  I knew that the series 75 limos carried over the '59-'60 roof and windshield thru 1965, but I didn't realize that the front doors were carryovers as well.  I also notice that the rear doors are fashioned to create a transition from the rounded front doors of the '59-'60 to the crisp quarter panels of the '64.  Very cool!

Here is mine in "Aquamarine metallic" with the interior repainted, the vertical blades of the grille installed and the moldings chromed with BMF.

@domi7777 Very nice mods! Goldvarg got the vertical bars on the convertible, also in Firemist Aquamarine. I wonder how Stamp missed this?

Sleep is one of God's gifts that everyone loves. When you come back home after a tiring day, all you want to do is lay in the comfort of your bed and forget all the stress that awaits you. On your off days, your bed is your sanctuary where you want to spend all your lazy hours lying in it, watching your favorite shows on Netflix, and binge eating one unhealthy snack after another.

Spam Alert! cleanup up on isle #3......please bring a mop.....this one is messy.

Nice models and fantastic pics John!

@100ford2003 

I use adhesive chrome paper cut into small segments; i also improved the grill of the Fleetwood Limousine.

@domi7777 And what a great job on that interior, painting around all those details!   Just opening up the windows would have been tricky enough.  What a huge improvement over a black interior when there were so many choices available for '60s Cadillacs.
