AMT 55 Chevy Truck

18 November 2009 - 04:10 PM

Well it's pretty much finished. I dropped the exhaust system. I wasn't digging it dumping out in front of the rear wheels. For now we're running open headers. Wake'n up the neighbors! Notice a lot of kits now days don't give specs like they use too. When I was a kid, you could learn a little background from the front of the instructions. The instructions on this one specs the motor as a V8. So I'm gonna fill in the blanks. It's 383 Stroker Motor with a Edelbrock dress up kit. Backed up by a 4 speed trans with a Hurst shifter. Alright enough for dreaming.

This is my first completed build in a long time. Hopefully it won't be my last again for a while. There are a few things I could go back and redo on this one. But I'm waiting to re-hone some of my skills before doing so. Not sure what to move onto next. I've got a few kits, here and there. The next one you see from me may be a 1:25 Grave Digger kit. Been thinking about maybe doing a sleeper muscle car. Notice a lot of the guys doing some grocery-getter sixers. Anyways. Check it out.

55 Chevy Truck

Hey guys. Starting to get back into building. This kit was started about a year and half ago. Picked the kit up at a local discount store for 5 bucks. Since this is my first kit back, I've decided to leave the body natural. Picking up where I left off. This is what I've got so far.
