Are you ready for the Hangman?

 

Only a ghoulish rig like this deserves the rare privilege of getting hitched to a disabled show car or custom street rod.

 

From the wild Cobra mill with dual-quad carbs and velocity stacks to the realistic noose dangling from the towering boom, this raking wrecker is really far out!

 

Antiqued headlights, rooftop spotlights and colorful decals add the finishing touches.

 

 

Ah yes, the decals... :(

 

 

I had, even with this kit, no luck with the decals...

 

Too old glue, or whatever ... :blink:

 

I could only install this one, on the roof deck.

 

A black one with a red interior, everyone has...

 

So I changed the colors.

 

Well, the color in these images comes not so right through. (Poor lighting)

 

In nature it is much more intense with metallic effects.

I have cut the steering rod, which was a little too high for my taste.

 

I had these wheels lying around, so they came to the mission.

 

The rear suspension, I superseded by right coil springs.

 

Recently I built a taillight, with a red Lego lens on.

Here are the pics:

I like it. You did a great job on it. That engine looks like it could have some potential in a street rod build. Some of these old show rods were neat little kits.

Cool build, I built this years and years ago, back in the mid 70's I picked it up on rainy Saturday afternoon, and had it built by that night. Painted very little of it, and glue bombed together. Brings back memories.

I love it! From the paint, to the interior, to the noose, to the stacks, to the stance. Awesome build HobbyBobby!
