Sweet job Mark. No one does convertibles, a lonely footnote in NASCAR history. Great build. Love the seat and the dash, great job on the details.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love the "real" stock cars like this one. Nice to see a convertible racer too. Guys like Fred L., Fireball,Lee Pettty, Jr. J, they could drive anything with a steering wheel. It took guts to fly around Daytona at 140 in shirt sleeves and bias plys.

Love this build! Great detailing and paintwork! I've been following this project as well; its a great tribute to the time when Nascar race cars weren't covered in sponsorship paint and hundreds of decals!
