This kit is more of a mash-up than a straight build, I got the 70 kit incomplete on eBay and member here traded me for '69 Cobra Jet parts. The interior tub, roll bar,seats and engine are from the 1969 Cobra Jet kit. The body, chassis, and suspension are from the '70 Boss kit. The wheel treatments are Shelby wheels, and the distributor is pre-wired from Morgan Automotive Detail. The body colour is Ford Sonic Blue Pearl. I bored holes in the wheel-well insides and used bread package wire-ties to strap the body to the chassis. Martinfan here helped me identify that the 69 chassis fan is not nearly as wide, OR long as the 70 chassis. So here we are...

And I lost the fuel-filler cap for the rear of the car. B)

Lol thanks, it's a real mutt. A shout out to Rickd13 for the hood (which i think is a 69 hood as well) and Builder04 for the powerplant.

Thanks Carl I appreciate it. It was my first 70Boss kit, and I learned a few process things for next time. It was a real bear.
