Hi guys, I was looking for input on my plans for my recently-purchased fastback. I understand ultimately I will make it how I want it, and it's up to me, but I was curious what inputs or suggestions you might have on the final plan.
Here is how it stands right now:
It is a factory-original A-code GTA, originally pebble beige with the exterior decor group. Obviously someone put Shelby scoops on it, but I think I like them. So, I'm not overly concerned with keeping it original, I've been waiting for years for a running driving reasonably priced 67 fastback and I'm not looking to sell this car. Once I address some mechanical and driveability concerns, then comes the fun part.
I hate the idea of pebble beige, and think a deep blue is the way to go; either a Shelby blue or maybe even DIB with grey stripes would look nice. Would matching grey GT side stripes be too much?
I have a spare hood and was considering adding a Shelby scoop to it to round out the look, but I don't want to turn it into a clone, I like the stock rear how it is. Would the Shelby scoops look out of place with a stock rear?
I also wanted to black out the grille (like Bullitt), which I feel ok about since the current one isnt original. And I was considering understated lower side scoops similar to Eleanor, maybe blended to the body. In my mind this combination of things looks great, but I'm afraid that it would be too much. Before I did anything I would do it small scale with a render or model. What do you think of the plan?
Don't hold your breath for big updates - I have lots to do before I have much to show, including saving up more fun money after the purchase!
