I think it's nice. Even with the smudge on the lens.

I have no idea whose body it was, Picked it up at a Toledo show, I think it was all american models, Fred Cady's resin adventure

The body is an old AAM resin. I bought several of them from Art Anderson at Toledo myself. Finished one as a salvage rig too. Never photographed it though. One of these days......

Overall nice job.

Now since you got i the hot seat and want some constructive criticism one thing I would think would make it a bit better would be to maybe hit the tires with some flat black paint to take away the toy look they always come out of the box with. And not sure if it is part of the lens smudge but it looks like there is a massive splattered bug on the windshield. Cool build though.
Stay Safe,
Chris

No bug, Chris I just washed it and it hadn't dried and the 'bug' are water droplets. Ok on the tires

Nice old rig, Greg. How about a rear step to get into the back?? ;) Just a couple of brackets and some scribed plastic painted black.
