Rat Vega

Custom Chevy Compact

Tom Daniel, ~ 1972.


Take a Chevy "RAT" engine, harness it to a Vega panel truck and you got it...RAT VEGA!

This potent panel truck packs a heavy 454 cubic inch muscle motor and soaks its traction from fat slicks on chrome mag wheels.

Custom front end is topped off by a see-through air scoop.

Hood removes to show off the super detailed mills.



Finally done.

I think, there have passed some twenty years, since I started this project. eyesroll.png

At first it was just molded in yellow. ( its the 1973 reissue)

Then came a blue over the, before individually taped rectangles.

Then everything disappeared unfinished, back in the box.

This graffiti thing, it was many years later...

And a few small changes...

Hope, you like it.

That's pretty wild. I read the description before I looked at the pics, and I sure wasn't expecting that.  :)
