The Solido 1950 Chev 4 dr sedan can be found any day on Ebay for under $20. I have even seen them under $10.I picked one up very cheap and decided to detail it by adding a dark gray roof, Bare Metal Foil, side vents on all 4 windows and licence plates. This Solido has a lot of potential. Here's how it turned out.

My next project is a Brooklin 1953 Ford turned into a 2 dr htp with a glass half roof as well as a 1959 Desoto 2 dr htp with wire wheels.

Those Solido 1950 Chevrolets were great donor cars for a number of variations I did over the years. Top clockwise:   stock fire chief car, Belair convertible, Kagar transkit tin woody, stock sedan, sedan delivery, business coupe.

Now if some diecast model maker would do the 1950-52 Plymouths I would have a whole new group to produce.
