This one has a special thanks to VCG Resins and Kyle "LOBBS" Laubscher for the LS7.What a nice resin piece. The truck is a Revell '64 Chevy Pickup Fleetside, which I lower the suspension, added Pegasus 23"  Chrome Hollie's, custom parts bin exhaust, wood trim for the bed from Ultracal. I painted with Duplicolor Blaze Red Crystal. This one was hard to make it all fit together, and she got some flaws, but I thought I would share it anyway!. Looking forward to the comments and questions.

Very Nice! I like those wheels on there and the details look great. I have been wanting to order one of those engines, better get my butt in gear!

VCG Resins, their web site is  http://vcgresin.atspace.com/. They shipped it super fast too. The reason I stuck it in this kit was due to the lack of modification, I just had to cut out one small cross-member, as well due to its width, the engine had to be installed after  the cab was glued to the frame.

Thank you. I'm working on a 65 stepside, and thought that would be an awesome swap.

Again, great work Chris and I'm glad that I could help you out by getting the LS7 cast.

I've got one of the '65 Chevys in the stash that I've been trying to find someone that'll swap the stepside bed for the fleetside one from the '64.

Sorry for the delayed response Chris. Work has been insanely busy. I will check with Manny. He may have them and has not had a chance to update the site.
