This is my first post and my first attempt at a major kit bashing. I combined a 58 Edsel Pacer with a 67 Chevelle Pro Street chassis.

That looks great CP, that's some imagineering alright. You should post up your tuner from the Cannonball CBP, there's plenty here that would appreciate that.

cool I've been pilfering edsel kits for the chassis parts for other ford projects. I have lots of spare bodies. Can you post more pictures of the chassis and interior fit ?

I used the Chevelle engine nothing fancy (very simple). The fit was good! The chassis requires a little carving on it to make a good fit with the body.

The interior was stock (from the Chevelle kit). Except for a few additions. I would suggest modification to the dashboard (from the Edsel kit) to get the best fit. Possibly just scratch building something.

Thanks for your positive comments guys!
