    Caution, caution!  As Rex well knows GT40s can become an addiction.  In 2005 I was trying to build a complete evolution of the GT40 and got burned out.  With retirement coming up maybe I can pick it up again.

    The Corvette is a survivor, just brushed the dust off.  The tow car is a Franklin Mint 1958 Edsel I found at an estate sale.

    1960 Corvette Drag Car
    This is an original 1960 AMT Corvette I built back in the day.  I think I was inspired by pictures of Big John Mazmanian's 1961 Corvette.

    Thanks for the comments.  As suggested here are some more pictures, this time with its sister, another AMT Corvette, a 1966 hardtop.

    The color is spot on and a very nice build.  Well done.

    As far as I remember the hood came with the body.  I think that is what caught my eye in the first place.  In searching my Corvette parts box I do have 2 more hoods.  One of these could be available to a resin caster if interested.

    Outstanding workmanship.  Congratulations.

    Thanks for the comments guys. This model was loosely based upon the early version of Tero Corvette seen here at Road America.
     
    The model was found at a Toledo Toy Fair back in the good old days and had a heavy coat of paint and a broken windshield and not much else.  Most of the parts came from the parts box.

    Sometimes even a race car needs a jump start.
