I picked up this 1;24 Racing Champions Sedan Delivery a few months ago

Both the pro street look & the graphics (some wrestling guy I think ?) are not me, so decided on a stripdown to transform it into a Junior Stocker, along these lines

Its a funny casting, so bit of parts box raiding has helped. Hood is from the AMT street machine 57, rear bumper from Revell Nomad. Front grill / bumper & suspension is from the Monogram 57 Nomad, which seems very similar. This also provided the clear glass.
Front bench is being swopped for 2 single seats.

Sits a bit better in this rough mock up.

Its now in primer (better pics to follow) but having probs getting front suspension sorted. My 1;1 57 will tucked away for the winter after this weekend, so should have more time to work on this.

Great start.
I have not seen the sedan delivery. I picked up a Nomad awhile back to do something with but I really like the sedan delivery better.

Tom, that looks very similar, least it has the standard hood with hood rockets. Mine was flat, let me know if its any use to you.

I've never seen another rc sedan delivery, keep watching ebay ect.
