here's the second 40 for our club build, an injected Hemi gasser.

Posted Image

I modified the 40 chassis for the Willys front axle, hemi and headers and 32 rear axle

Posted Image

I sanded the doors and added a roll and tuck pattern, glued the front end for a 1 piece.

Posted Image

I recessed the firewall and put in a trans tunnel from an S-10.

Posted Image

the bed is from the AMT Willys.


Posted Image

chassis ready, Willys wheels, resin tires

Posted Image

Willys engine with injection, parts box manifold, tubing injector stacks.

Posted Image

It's a tight fit.

Thanks Guys,

I'm really partial to older drag cars so I knew I had to build this one.

I love it, great job on all the modifications, and that injected engine and the beautiful yellow paint make it all that much better.

Thanks, guys, the tires are copies of parts box pieces. If I only have a couple of a given tire, I make resin copies of them, then I don't have to rob expensive kits for tires.
