I'm going to do this one up as a street/strip car. But with a little older oldschool looks. I'm not going to use a hood,  the tunnel ram,carbs,valvecovers are from the AMT 66 Nova kit. The wheels i think i may keep the stock ralleys up front and Centerlines in the rear. The Centerlines are from a 71 Cuda kit i think. The Color is Rustoleum Dark Bronze. The int i used Krylon saddle tan and tan flocking. Under the rear seat area i just primed it and misted it with body color. The tach, uderdash gauges and fire extinguisher are from a MPC 69 Mach1 Mustang kit.  I'm going on vacation this week so no progress on it but did want to start a thread. Questions, comments, and advice are all welcome.

All in due time :) I would like a set of yellow ones for this. I been doing my own wire setup with beading wire. But its only black. I had some prewired distributors coming and one was with yellow wires, but the seller decided not to have any communication and never sent what I payed for. I ended up getting my money back after I opened a dispute.

Going to try to upload a picture from my phone, so don't know if it will work. But I ordered a Accel package from Scale Models by Chris. It came the other day, and I wired the engine today. It is in the corret firing order lol. I may make a gas line for it too. Also BMF the body today.

And it is done. No side mirror, cause I broke it...  But I'll put more pictures of it in Under Glass.
