    MercurXR4TI,
     
    Thanks, is a late 1980's Monogram Monte Carlo chassis, you can use it as a base to do a Mopar  NASCAR front/back suspension set-up or use it without modifications..well a little bit to lower the ride stance if you like it a little lower like I did in mine....it will fit perfectly in the Mirada/Imperial bodies.

    My at the time on progress Imperial, no "glass" yet and the front bumper/lower airdam is still unpainted. I am using one of the resin bodies from SHM from my master body. By now the Arrington car is fully finished, have to take new pictures.

    Yes is a very nice article, have it on file and is full color. I use it as part of the referencences when I did the body master of the NASCAR Imperial now available as is the  Mirada in resin.

    B. Arrington Mirada.

    Yes the above Arrington car is an Imperial...not the Mirada, Arrington used Mirada,Cordaba and Imperial race cars, the Cordoba was only different in the front end style/design from the Mirada. Marcis was another NASCAR driver who used a Mirada.

    The credit for the  above Petty test Mirada picture go to NC Marrk via GaPettyFan forum member, THANKS to the two of them a long debate on how it was when it was tested by Richard Petty team is over.
    Those superb color pictures of the test Petty Magnum are great,  I used them to build my black primer Petty Magnum some time back, I saw some of these on another dedicate NASCAR board, thanks for sharing them, it was a BIG visual help in doing the model and have more and detailed pictures of the Petty Magnum race car from the early start!

    Must give Full credit to GaPettyFan and the diligence in investigating and FINALLY obtaining a photo of the january Petty test Mirada race car in a side profile...yes...the mistery of the look and if the Petty Mirada was in primer...black to some, grey to other...have been put to rest...for good, as GaPettyFan said and did with his model...the Petty test Mirada was fully painted in the form latter used by the Daytona winning Buick.
    I searched for year for a side photo of the Petty test Mirada without luck...until I saw that B/W side profile!..by now I have painted my Petty test Mirada in the two tone colors and waiting for the STP logos for the back panels and hood...also visible in that photo...a Good Year decal on top of the front wheel openings, now I have a replica of one if not the most elusive and less documented Petty cars.

    SUPERB work and craftmanship, the details and modifications truly make the best in this scale. Love the color combination inside and out, truly a classic look. Once more magnificent work from all angles.

    Your conversion is Coming along very nice and will look forward for more updates.
    I am doing something similar with my Lincoln, but go in another way in the chassis, I know it will not be correct/factory stock but since I wanted a street/performace/custom Lincoln I used the mid/late 1980's Mustang chassis/interior, it almost fit perfectly, some cuts here and there in thei interiors, used the Buick Grand National "BBS style" wheels and tires,  here is an old photo of this project, that is still pending to be finished...some day!!
