So back in 1994 I thought a Nascar style truck would be a fun build, this was several months before the actual series was announced. The 1994 AMT F-150 donated body and bed. Bill Elliots McDonalds T-bird donated the rest. I modified the chassis and the cage to suit the F-150. Everything else is from the T-bird kit plus some plumbing and wiring. The window net is masking tape. Note the separation between body and bed, not typical of the smooth side 1:1 trucks on the horizon. This build has always lived in a plastic case, thus it has stayed very fresh for 18 years.

Nice job, you were ahead of the times. I never would have thought Nascar would race trucks.

Jimmy ran the #27 in McD colors for a year or 2. I have about 4 of the Monogram kits in the stash.

Looks great from all angles, like your concept even more than the actual racers that where design and used at the time.
