This one has been on and off for years and it started as something else and then it morphed into different things over time.
It started with the idea of putting a V8 into a Prowler, which then turned into putting the Prowler drivetrain in a 3 window Deuce with the Plymouth's suspension. Then it was supposed to be a green roadster and the frame was painted. That idea became a yellow Phaeton. So the frame was repainted. Then the Prowler drivetrain plan was scrapped and the idea became a high power V8 (LT5) with a quick change rear. As it sits right now it has a Ferrari V12 in it.
So, what was done?
The frame is a hybrid between the AMT Phantom Vicky and a Prowler frame with good amount of modifications thrown in. Reading the later issues of the Magazine, I guess it would be considered "scratch bashing". It now has the IFS from the Vicky and an IRS based on the Prowler's, while it accommodates the engine and the rear mounter transmission.
The body is the front half of the Phantom Vicky, mated to the rear of an old AMT Phaeton body, with all the door lines filled and new ones scribed.
The interior has the dash from the Vicky, but pulled out, extending the panel behind the windshield. The floor is about half of the Vicky's, but the rest will have to be scratch build. The side panels are from the Dan Fink speed wagon and are completely reworked with new door lines described and will be molded with the body on the top. The front seats are also from the Speed Wagon and are so far stock. The rear seats is the bench from the same kit, but it has been cut many different ways.
The roof is from the AMT Phaeton, but it will be modified in few different ways. The wheels are from a Tamiya Ferrari 360 with the rears fitted in a Pegasus alu sleeve and shod in stretched Tamiya F40 Pirellis.
Still a lot of work to do on this one, so stay tuned and thanks for looking.
