This was a fairly basic alteration to Franklin Mint's Buick Roadmaster. The biggest change was the dashboard, which I repainted to match the movie car. I also added the side view mirror and screen-accurate license plates. I had bought this as a damaged car, so in addition to the corrections I also needed to straighten the radio antenna and replace the hood ornament (made from aluminum and a section of straight pin.
