This one is a little different and probably won't appeal to everyone .
It's a resin body from Modelhaus modified to accept the windshield and interior from a '67 Corvette . The wheel openings were enlarged , the side molding is half round styrene rod , and the spare tire cover is a modified piece from a '59 Chevy .
The Corvette chassis was shortened and the suspension was narrowed . The stock 427 motor and tranny fit like a glove !
The paint is MM Nassau Blue and Tamiya Classic White .

Awesome!
Great way to get rid of those meddlesome Corvette parts, to boot. :D

Wow Bob, What an insane combo. A 427 Nash Metro. Ya know the candle on the birthday cupcake'd be the Gas Filler Cap from a '50's, 60's roadracer on the "trunk" .

That is great! I really like the way it looks. Excellent work. I imagine it would be a scary driver.

That is awesome. No more crazy than a big block in an English sports car (Cobra anyone?). Very cool.

Different is always good. Still undecided about the appeal, but the engineering is fantastic. Not an easy combo but you put it together like it was meant to be.
