Now that is an interesting build. And I like it A LOT .

Me thinks the chassis is mostly scratchbuilt ?

 

I know the actual car is sitting on Garlits museum floor and always thought one would be cool in 1/25th scale

 

I wasn't aware there was ever a resin body to do this car. You happen to know if it's still avail anywhere ?

Really neat model; one of the few truly original ideas I've seen in a long time.

 That is Awsome!!!!  I got one odd ball question for you. What did you have it setting on for the pics?

Is that a cement block?  It just makes a good base for pics of that nature.

Hi bill.......I got the resin body from Ebay about 3 years ago.........it was a solid block of resin.........I bored it out......to have a chassis underneath.........the guy who was selling them was also selling some other drag stuff.........he got up-set with some of the buyers and canceled his Ebay account........ wish I could have bought a few more bodies from him before he canceled his account.........thanks

As a relative newbie member but longtime observer, I can't express any better that which others have long said about your work "O Master John."  You hit every chord (for those of us that truly love drag racing's golden age- the artistry is a joy to behold. Thank YOU for sharing- along with all you other craftsmen out there.
