I always liked the traditional looking hot rods. This is Revell's 32 that I chopped the top on. Used masking tape for roof insert and to cover cut when roof had to be stretched. Also cut front frame horns off because I think it looks cleaner. Used the 392 hemi from kit but added various engine parts from AMT's double dragster kit. Headers are from Ohio George 33 Willys. AMT tires up front and old AMT slicks on rear. Thanks for looking....Jay.

Thanks for comments guys. It's actually a very light grey Tamiya military color. Bad lighting and Ipad camera make for lousy pictures. One of these days i'll buy a decent camera.

I dig it! A no-nonsense traditional rod. Switching out the kit tires is always a good thing on the Revell 1/25th kits, IMHO. The kit's "fat fronts" are a real deal-breaker. Nice chop, too.
