I built this back in March. It's the AMT 1941 Plymouth. I used most of the kit's parts along with a few from my parts box. I added the bucket seats and stearing wheel from a AMT Prowler and tinted the windows using the desposible sunglasses you get at the eye doctor. The engine came in the kit, it looks to me to be maybe a 340, I added a pre-wired distributor and a partsbox air cleaner and used some wire to make the fuel lines and throtle cable. I made the throtle return spring out of armiature wire wound around a drill bit. I added the upper and lower radiator hoses and heater hoses. The wheels and tires came from the Revell Dodge Copperhead concept car, the brakes came from an AMT NASCAR kit. I added alluminum tips to the exhaust. I painted it with Dupli-Color Bahama blue met. with five coats of clear and polished it out with a Millinium 2000 polishing system. I painted the bumpers, grill, headlights, taillights and hood orniment with Alclad chrome. Overall, it was a fun build.

The engine, wheels and brakes really make it on this car. I had a friend in High School who had a '41 coupe painted about this same color for his first car. His never looked this good. Nice job!

Very beautiful build. I love the color and stance. The front bumper could stand to be pulled in a bit though.
