Just finished this custom over the weekend. I might attempt this on another Lesney because I wish I used a more vivid chrome on the window trim and strip below the doors. Wheels swap from an old Husky Cadillac El Dorado. Interior is black like the Continental from the film.

Fun fact: At first, I painted this lincoln entirely black. But, after a bit of research online, I found that the car is actually a very dark green. It looks black in the film because the mood is so dark and the lighting does not show the green tint. I ended up layering green and black to try to get the shade that I needed.

The Matrix is one of my favorite films and I simply cannot imagine them traveling in a different car. The old Lincoln is just perfect in my opinion.

Thanks for looking!
