I used Decals by Lucas "Shake Rattle and Run" decals on the 60. Miss Deal chassis underneath.

That is neat, I have a long stalled Starliner project with a similar theme.

WOW, That's excellent! Miss Deal chassis is very good basis, I've seen it being used on MANY '50's and '60's cars. I've built a '59 Simca with Miss Deal chassis, it's excellent basis and I'm so glad when they're reissuing that kit. :D I like your rusting, it looks very realistic and nicely done all in all. Did you adjust the wheelbase to get it right?

Thanks Carl, it's appreciated...

Thanks Niko, I to am glad they are reissuing the Miss Deal kit along with a couple of my friends that are into drag racing.
The wheelbase on the chassis is un touched but I did bring the rear wheel opening forward on the body.
