This is very cool! Big and good looking Early 60's Car turns out into Pro Sportsman? Pro Mod? Drag Racer. What will be the correct category for this? Great job, looks like the chassis needs some extension. :lol:

After your recent builds Brett I'm anxious to see what kind of paint scheme you come up with for this build....Keep at it!

You are on a hacksaw roll, Brett. Very cool. And I don't think this has ever been done.

Thanks guys, progress has been very slow as my mum had a heart attack a last weekend and is living with us now. Got started by lengthening the floor pan from cutting up another top sportsman kit floor though the remaining pieces are the perfect length for the next doorslammer project. Started scratching up my own cage/ chassis as the kit ones are too short to be used in the longer starliner cabin .

not real happy with how the cage has turned out so far so may make a brass one anyway. once its been tidied up and primed after the next few bars are added I'll decide then. this will be a nitrous car so will have the big scoop rather than my preferred supercharger
