Must have been quite the long term project.
Picked up a little something from every fad from the 50's to the 90's in that one.
Lots of nice work but no focus in the build.....

Hmm.. Well the chop looks well done. Whoever did the paint has a lot of talent doing lace etc. You couldn't build it for that however the overall look doesn't do much for me. I'd do something different in the engine compartment. A repaint to a solid colour (and maybe some metalflake on the roof) would do wonders for this car.
I'd change the look of the interior too.

I dunno, I have to say I think it's pretty cool actually.

And it would look a heck of a lot better in my garage than JohnneeD's Ford did.

Done to personal taste, hence the $40 G price tag.

I agree with Dan ... lots of work done, but no focus ... a dog's breakfast.

Paint it a solid colour and lose the 56 caddy front end and its better looking outside. That console is a monstrosity too.

Some of those painting techniques are things you don't see anymore, like lace painting or that multicoloured section with pinstriping in relief via masking (circa 1971). The overall look is kinda busy though but I do see different elements from different trends. The market will dictate what it is worth.

Here's another done to personal tastes.
Wouldn't want to have to face this the morning after a few too many wobbly pops.

Those seats look awkward (uncomfortable) ... bad upholstery job.
