          This was most likely done by some kid in 1960

            Looks a lot like a 1960 Fury except for the taillights.

              I think you nailed the Thunderbird thing. Especially the front end. There's no question.

                  I think the front end is like 65 Thunderbird. Pretty evident.

                    Front end, doors and interior are from a 1959 Thunderbird

                      Rear end appears to be the 59 Thunderbird as well (look at the taillights).

                            LOLOL! No, but I'll admit to having some hot wheels in my garage art case that look like they might be.

                              I’ll do, mostly newer stuff but some of it’s cool, well, at least to me anyway. I do like the platform base cars too but leave those to those who have the room for them. If I had caught them when they first came out, I would have tried to collect the ZAMAC (zinc, aluminum, magnesium, and chrome) sets.
