Determination Model A drag car

27 November 2013 - 03:54 AM

By a special request from Tim Boyd (how can I say no to him?), here are some pix of a model I built back in 2010 of the Determination Model A that ran in the Detroit area back in the early 1970's. I based the model on a photo I found on the internet.

I used the body from old Monogram 1930 Ford Model A, and chopped the top a scale 4 inches. The chassis was scratchbuilt using Evergreen plastic and parts from the AMT 1933 Willys kit.

The engine the Chevy Mark IV Large Block, aka "Big Block" from the AMT 1967 Chevrolet Impala kit with resin injector intake and scratchbuilt headers.

The finished model isn't perfect. It doesn't have a radiator, so it's technically not a legal gasser like the car in the picture, and I never put the shocks or trailing arms on the rear suspension. I filled the rear tires with A+B plumbers putty and drilled holes into them and the base at an angle so I can display it with the wheels up.
