All really good suggestions I vote any mid 30s Chevy PPPlllleeeeaaaassseeee a rerelease of the Orange blossom special a bullet nosed Studebaker a rerelease of the 57 Chevy street machine (great Parts) and perhaps a brain replacement
I think this is one of the best kits I've ever seen, even though its a Ford, lots of great parts, really nice. lots of parts for my 32 Chevy Hi-Boy. I wonder if the top would fit on it. I'm sure this has been covered but the instructions show the blower belt being installed upside down. Now if I can find a rat roaster for the pipes.
This will show you how crazy I am to get the right look. The front half of the frame is AMT's 67 impala Street machine. the rear half is Amt's 57 Chevy Bel Air Street Machine( I love this kit, lots of good parts}. Other part I used were off the Revell Corvette C5-R for the a arms and other cool looking stuff that just fit. I added plastic tubing to the frame to make it look stronger, and scratch built a working rack and pinion steering. the inspiration for this car was the Street Rodder road tour Impala.
Yes, the wheels and tires are from the Tamiya F50. I contacted the Tamiya America parts ordering # and told them what I needed, and ordered 3 sets of them, and a couple of sets of wheels. it cost me a lot less then the kits are going for.
