Probably not what you expected. A "what if" that I did some time ago. AMT body, Miss Deal chassis, many parts box pieces and Slixx decals.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Looks like Miss Deal Chassis can be converted to fit inside many cars! I'm currently building '59 Simca Vedette Gasser with that Miss Deal studebaker chassis.

You did very nice job with this one, one of the best builds that I've seen from that Rat Packer Nova. Many times What If style builds are not my thing, but this is really nice.

Nice work. I love it. I too have used the "Miss Deal" chassis and shoved it under a different body.

The car is great by itself and adding a wheelstand is even better. Nice touch with the rubber marks, too. Great model - love those altered wheelbase cars and injector stacks.

I love "what ifs"! It lets your imagination loose! Plus they are usually very fun builds! Aaron Dupont
