Absolutely stunning build! I really want one of these in my collection now! Great color...reminds me of the special colors that were available only in the NW.

Absolutely remarkable!

 

I love it. I really want to build one myself. Given that the Torino engine and chassis are a drop-in fit, I'm a bit surprised Revell hasn't tooled up a Cyclone body and issued this as a kit.

Wow that's really sweet!

I had that MPC funny car back in the day, "The Cyclops" right?

I remember being disappointed with the stock bodies in most of the funny car kits of that era, but you've certainly made great use of that one.
