This one has been festering a long time.  Many moons ago I cut up a '51 Chevy hard top headed towards doing a rough pickup.  It sat in a box ever since.  Then Rich Manson handed me this camper body and told me to do something strange with it.  Then Dr Cranky got going on his '57 Ford...  so stuff came outta boxes, plastic got cut and here's a very preliminary mockup.  

 

Body is the '51 Chevy fastback. I wanted the sedan doors. I believe that's a 50 or 55 Chevy pickup box jammed between the '51s rear fenders.  And the camper sits nicely on top of this all.   Stay tuned, beware!   :P

Tom you are a madman...  I knew you'd do something cool with that camper insert.  I can't wait to see how this beast turns out.
