This is a great build! It's always cool to see a replica scale car, especially when it can be done accurately. BTW the factory color on your brother's car is code 61 Burnished Brown Metallic, which is a fairly rare color on any of GM's performance cars. Wheels look like Boss 338's which are very similar to most torque thrust style wheels. Looks like you got the stance nailed down perfectly. Can't wait to see this one finished.

Yup you are correct on the color...The wheels on his car are Boyd Coddington junk yard wheels


And yes the wheels are 19" & 23" Pegasus wheels

The wheels & stance are everything: and you nailed it. Unique color looks great on that body style. Your cousin has a nice ride. and your off to a great start replicating it.

I like it. Color isnt really my thing, but it honestly really makes those wheels pop. Nice job replicating it thus far.

Looks great so far. I don't think I'd use that carb though. To me it just looks off from the rest of the engine. Just my opinion

Great color choice from the common colors! How much modification did you have to do to the Cutlass frame?

Carb has been changed to the one the kit came with...With the Cutlass frame motor sits up a lil bit more..

 

I had to trim the top of the tranny and the trans member to get it in there right
