I hate to let good parts go to waste. And since I'm using the BBC from a Camaro kit. This is what the body will become.

It's loosely based on a early 70's dirt car. I wanted to show some of the body mods before applying filler. You can see them in white styrene.

The nose and wheels are from FRW, And the hood is from a later Camaro. The chassis is being recycled from an older build and will be modified quite a bit.

  The body work is pretty much done. My search for a Super Stocker chassis has ended for now. They are hard to find and way to expensive at this point. So I did the next best thing.

  Started scratch building one! Using the front clip from the Camaro kit, some Ever Green and some reference pictures. Here is what I came up with, so far.

Thank you for the kind words. I have been adjusting the ride height and messaging the body some. The suspension is real close. 

I'll update as available.
