1937 Chevy 409 Gasser

01 April 2015 - 02:37 PM

I rescued this one from my old Built box, from the 70's. That 40 year old enamel fought long and hard in the green pond !The 409 is from the parts box, along with the cross ram manifold . The magneto is scratch built as is the catch can. The doors were opened and the front clip hinged gasser style. I  did a spackle style interior paint. The tranny is a parts pack Hydro Stick with linkage added. The front suspension uses the 32' Ford axle, the rear has traction bars modified from the same kit. The interior has a stock dash with added gauges, a tach, and the chute pull.. The grenade shift knob is scratch built, so is the fire extinguisher. Paint is Tamiya rattle can orange. Windows are made from tinted business card stock.

This one has a resin body of unknown origin ( Flintstone ? ) on top of a Z'd Revell 32 frame.  It's chopped, channeled, and has a drilled visor added.The louvered trunk is from the 32 5 window.The doors are hinged, the dash is 48 Ford. I also added side steer with hanging pedals. The motor is a Parts Pack Caddy. Rear end is a quick change. Paint is Tamiya Black .  The rear and Caddy valve covers are from Replica and Miniatures of maryland. Thanks for looking.

AMT "white" body, "grey" fenders" from coupe, and chassis from Revell ( much better detail with Columbia 2 speed rear ). Hemi is from parts box with scratch built injection. Opened doors. Resin dash. Tamiya rattle can paint. Modelhaus spider caps . Thanks for looking.


1957 Dodge D501

23 March 2015 - 01:24 PM

Modelhaus resin kit combined with AMT 57 Crhysler 300. Chassis shortened to suit Dodge wheelbase. Opened hood and doors. Used Modelhaus interior except AMT tub.  Real D501 used left over 56 Chrysler 300C 354 Hemi, dodge truck spindles and wheels, and Chrysler rear for a Nascar homolagation effort. About 50 cars built but multi carbs and fuel injection were banned so these cars went to dealers. Arnie Beswick drag raced one. Paint is Tamiya rattle can Copper and Racing White. Something different from the usual Ford or Chevy. Thanks for looking.
