my Dictionary states
"a coupe is a Closed 2 door car"


A Later Edition was limited to 5 pieces

Not in T-Bird UK Collection


"Approximately 20 years ago when I was first starting ELC (Enchantment Land Coachbuilders) I made the 1960 Thunderbird Hardtop which was a conversion from the 1960 Dinky convertible.

The 1965 Thunderbird convertible was a conversion of the Hong Kong Dinky 1965 Hardtop

Back then American marque models were few and far between -- thus my incentive to modify existing models into other versions.  As are most of my models the Thunderbirds are resin cast........

As a by-product of my many years working with 1/43 and the generation of an electronic data base for my inventory, I produced a 1/43 reference manual called "American Wheels" a few years ago.  At that time the base covered some 2600 different American marque models.  The data base is now up to 3700!  Soon time to publish a second edition."
