That started life as the ZZ Top Eliminator. As it sits in its box, it has a two-piece louvered belly pan, narrowed front frame to fit within the body, a substantially modified track T nose so that the wider part is on top, a Parts Pack blown hemi mated to a Ford Mark IV transaxle (mid engine, rear drive), a flip top panel on top, just like the name-sake HotWheel. I chopped the already chopped top and laid the windscreen back instead of cutting it down. It even has that huge intake scoop sticking out of the top. Started it for a HotWheels comunity build but life kinda got in the way.

this is a 34 ford I have been working on for some time now, It will have hubless wheels and will use an electric motor for motivation. I am thinking about a complete carbon fiber body using decals. I might finish this someday.

@Customsrus, that thing is beautiful. How are you gonna do the hubless wheels? Thats gonna be interesting to see.

@Bryan, again that rust is awesome. Thats one thing Ive yet to consider doing... I dont think I have the skill for it yet. Whats the plan for the build?

Brandon....... rust isnt that hard to do, especially what i did on that body.. a little practice and you could do it too.....

that build will be pretty much as is, and box stock except the detail parts i will add to it. im gonna do some of the body panels different colors, but nothing crazy.....i really havent decided yet.

cheers

This might set the record for stalled projects. I started this in the early 80's following a chop tutorial by Tim Boyd in Street Rodder Magazine. Nothing but testors tube glue and body putty in this one!

Thanks Brandon!

i think that panel truck kit is super hard to find now. i got lucky when i found this one, i traded some stuff for it......ill keep an eye out, and if i see one somewhere ill let you know.

i forgot to mention that the wheels in the pic with it are the ones goin on it, they came from a diecast car.

cheers
