I did this one about 15 years ago. It started out as a Johan Excel promo with sealed hood, no interior & a flat plate for a chassis. I cut open the hood & added the chassis, engine & interior from a 68 Roadrunner kit. Hope you enjoy.

I really like what you did with this one..

The body lines just scream Virgil Exner and I love it

 

 

I just did one of these as a ramchargers car and it's probaly one of my favorite builds to date.

Very Nice! I've seen one of these in person, and after that I appreciate your work even more. It's not easy to convert a Promo to this nice model! Like the look of those wheels and tires on this one, those match perfectly with the paint and engine choice. Overall fantastic build, only those headlights would be bit more realistic since now they look chromed to me, but that's very small thing.

That is awesome, nice work on the kitbashing.  Plum and White always make for a great color combo, and the Magnum's are the cherry on top.  Congrats, and thanks for sharing.
