This is something I have wanted to build for a while.

58 Edsel named "Sour Grapes" painted purple and with the infamous sour pucker of the Edsel grill.

I am using the AMT kit for the Edsel and cheating a little and using the Revell 57 gasser wagon for some of the gasser suspension parts instead of making my own.

I am using a parts box JoHan 429 and parts box supercharger. I had to adjust the blower belt to fit this combo. I had a resin Hiborn 4 pot injector and scoop so I decided to use it on this build. Wheels and tires are coming from the parts box too.

Thanks guys.

So much chrome!!!! Lots of BMF.

This year of Edsel had a yellow engine with white valve covers, so I thought I would keep it "stock" lol

I brushed some Molotow on the injector scoop. I love that stuff.

Interesting work. Hard to get the trim looking right on that one!

The side trim was very tricky.

I am still pretty happy with it, even though it's not perfect.

I got a lot done. Just a few little odds and ends. And I have to make or buy the "Sour Grapes" decals.

Beautiful build! The fact that it's an Edsel makes it that much more unique.
