This car started as the stock AMT '65 Galaxie kit.  I trimmed the chrome trim off the body and smoothed it out.  I had to modify the chassis to remove the molded in exhaust.  I used plastic tubing for the exhaust.  I modified the interior and scratched up the rollcage.  I added seat belts and shoulder belts along with buckles and bolsters.  I fabbed up a fuel cell for the trunk and made shocks from plastic tubing and rod.  I removed the emblem from the grill and stripped the chrome, replacing it all with Alclad.  The wheels and tires were made by me from resin.  I fabbed up the hood and trunk pins.  I wired the engine and used an air cleaner from the parts box.  The decals are a combination of Penngwen decals and some of my own homemade decals.

Thanks, guys.

jwrass, the only time I know of that he ran this scheme was Riverside.  I don't know of any other time he had a car like this.
