This build was inspired by a car Drew Hierwarter built and was featured i. The dec. 2009 issue of Model Cars Magazine. I started with the Revell 5 window coupe. I am using the engine , wheels and tires fro Revells 49 Merc coupe. The rear end came from Revells 37. So far i have channeled the body
Shortened the frame and removed the tank. Put i the 37 crossmember and drilled out the axles to take the pins from the merc.

Yeah for another Right Coaster! Even though the unchopped top is a sign of whats called East Coast Rod, most of our '49 Mercs are LOW! :) My current build is so also. :)

Gonna be watching this to see how it comes together.

Yeah Jim these car things go together quick!! Honestly i enjoy building everything but if youve ever built an old AMT truck kit you know nothing fits and everything needs to be modified and fixed. These new revell kits go together good.
