Nice build, I have one of these in my stash to build someday. I always felt like this was Dale's most iconic car.

Nice job. Everyone has to have a 3 car in the collection, regardless of what you thought of the driver.

Looks like some of the slver/red rocker panel striping was part of what was missing from the kit. Either way, you did a great job with what you had. I've always thought the Goodwrench Aerocoupe was one of the best looking cars he ever drove.

That's sooo weird. I was just reading about this car this morning. They were saying how this body design was built by Chevrolet exclusively to compete with the aerodynamic Tbird (which had a similar but less agressive rear window treatment) on the track. It was this very car that got Dale in the winner's circle. If not for this car and this design, he may not have become as successful and popular as he was and still is. Nice build!
