Larry Watson 1957 Plymouth Kustom - WIP

Postby MoparGreg » Thu Jul 20, 2017 5:11 am

Hi all,
Just thought I would share a car Ive been working on. A 1957 Plymouth painted by Larry Watson. For those that don't know Larry Watson, he was a custom painter back in the day who had his own unique style. From what I understand this car was painted in 1958. Im a fan of Larry's work, also a fan of Forward Look finned mopars so this was a no brainer. Usually I just prefer late 50's/early 60's mopars to be plain stock but this one always caught my eye. It was my first time painting a car with this type of paint work so I was a little nervous but it came out pretty good so far.

This is a 57 Plymouth resin kit mixed with AMT 58 Plymouth plastic kit. Plan for this is H&R chassis, narrowed H&R wheels, Hawk motor & my urethane white walls.

For those wanting to know more about the car, read here - https://www.customcarchronicle.com/cc-builders/larry-watson-c-painter/watsons-terry-holloway-plymouth/

Nicely done Greg! Larry is one of the reasons I became a professional auto painter. Can't wait to see this one finished.
