That car came from the factory with the front end high just like the drag cars of that time.

Getting pretty sick and tired everytime I go to buy Tamiya paint...the Government, has to pe a PITA with their labeling guidelines....So, I had to buy some Rustolem Apple Red paint, that is real close to the Tamiya Italian Red, for the interior, and some Rustolem Black Lacquer for the body. I really am thinking about just waiting until March to get the Tamiya Black for the body, though.

I also saw an article somewhere on the Sox & Sinclair car, and, IIRC, the "W" engine in it was refered to as a 427.

I happened to come across this car on Lucas Decals site, and thought it would be a nice build. I would like for it to be as correct as possible though, especially the powertrain.

This thread is back from the dead. I got in the mood to do some building about a few weeks ago. Been away for over a year and a half. Decided to change the engine to look more like the one in the tribute car.

So far, so good.
That MCW body looks pretty nice; I can see that on my shelf with a six and dog-dishes in some anonymous color.

I like MCWs stuff. I got some Z-11 stuff, like headers and such, and I probably spent just as much time cleaning them up as I would have on styrene. I'm currently waiting on a 63 Galaxie lightweight interior kit from MCW, for my next project.

Doesn't the Revell 55 Chevy have the Z-11 motor?
Don't know about that, but at least AMT '62 Super Stock Bel Air kits have Z11 engine parts. That's the kit I'm trying to find with reasonable price to use the engine in my '63 Z11 Impala. That, decals and interior parts are the only things I'm still missing.
This looks very interesting. One of my favorite subjects and very nicely built so far. Keep it going.

I rebuilt the interior with a different roll bar, and got rid of that bright "Apple Red" Rustoleum, and repainted it with Tamiya "Italian Red". I would have liked to paint the body today, but the weather is not cooperating.

Are those AMT F - 60 front tires on that chassis?
Yes. G-70-14 belted poly glass is on them. Don't know which kit(s) as I got a bunch of tires and rims recently.
